I woke up in a fiercely creative mood today!
For today's post I decided to put that creativity to work. Sometimes I find that I overthink my wardrobe too much. For example, earlier this week, I was raiding my closet trying to create a unique look by layering or wearing something I have not worn in a long time, or pairing contrasting pieces together. But nothing seemed quite right.
Then I was in a rush one afternoon and needed something easy, cool, and comfortable. This Mossimo scarf caught my eye and I was thinking how I could wear it without being unbearably hot. That's when I decided to try wearing it as a vest. I like the way it looks! The tribal print of the scarf and the use of contrasting colors gives it a summery feel. I opted for a small black belt that would not compete with the print in the scarf.
Not only is it an easy, comfortable outfit for girls who are constantly on the move, it can be switched up easily. A different printed scarf could create a completely different look!
All of this is basically to let you know that for the rest of my May Style Challenge posts, I will share some of my styling tips that have proven true for me over the years. I have two styling tips for today;
1. Small, simple changes can create different looks easily. A change of shoes or bags, adding a statement piece, changing from shorts or pants, even adding a hat or scarf can create a variety of different looks! It may take some experimenting and you may not like everything you come up with but when you find that perfect ensemble, it will all be worth it. =)
2. Keep it simple and accessorize. I cannot take full credit for this or any credit really. I heard this from one of my fashion heroes, the beautiful Kate Hudson. She was asked in an interview about her style and she responded by saying she keeps the clothing simple and accessorizes heavily. I have found this to be a great and fun way to style.
Thanks for reading -I know it is a long post this time- and have a great day! =)
