I did it!
A few posts back, I talked about hot fashion trends this season; one being tulle skirts. I expressed my skepticism about being able to integrate such a non-conventional piece into my wardrobe, but I committed to keeping an open mind to it. And, I’m glad I did.
I saw this little cutie a couple of weeks ago and even though I had no idea what I would do with it, I bought it anyway. Although I don’t necessarily agree, my style has been called conservative by some. For me, conservative is equivalent to boring and I try never to be that.
Really, though, I think my style is about me liking what I like; conventionally clean lines and structure. Staple pieces like statement necklaces, collared shirts, pencil skirts and tapered jackets give me life!
When styling an outfit, though, I have one rule I try always to adhere to. And, that’s to pair a staple or conventional piece with something a little more fanciful and carefree. That’s why I chose this black, collared shirt to wear with my new tulle skirt and I have to say, I really liked the results.
What about you? What styling standards do you abide by when putting together your signature look? Leave me a comment below and tell me about it.
