The days of wearing a sweater + jeans + closed toe shoes are numbered — but I’ll take ’em while I still can! :)
We had a cool spell a few days ago and, since it might be the last one for a while, I leaned into it with a black and brown palette — something that I usually reserve for fall and winter.
It’s no secret that the volume on top + fitted on bottom proportion has been a favorite of mine for quite some time. I’ve worn it for years and that familiarity makes me feel ultra comfortable in it.
It’s also that familiarity that’s inspiring me to push myself outside of my comfort zone a little, testing out the opposite proportion — fitted on top + volume on bottom.
Interesting how things slowly begin to shift, isn’t it? :)
However, familiar or not, I’m still wearing the volume on top + fitted on bottom proportion regularly — and I don’t see that changing any time soon.
This particular outfit works for a cool spring days, with a not-too-warm sweater and a pair of closed toe clogs. But I could easily translate the same proportion into outfits for different weather.
For example, when it’s warmer, I could do high waisted shorts + a boxy crop tank + sandals.
Or, when it’s chillier, I could go for an oversized crop sweater + high waisted jeans + ankle booties.
Same proportion, different details. :)
So tell me, what’s your favorite proportion? Fitted on top + volume on bottom? Or volume on top + fitted on bottom? Or do you have an entirely different proportion you love to wear? I’d love to hear about it!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)
