If you were to open up my closet and peer inside, you’d see a whole lot of basic tees.
My style leans heavily to the minimal side, and I like it that way.
I’m discovering something that utterly delights me.
Picture a tweed jacket. A pair of ballet flats. A delicate, detailed top (oh hey, like the one I’m wearing). These are garments that fall into the feminine style category — and, on their own, I wouldn’t consider them to be “my style.”
But when these pieces are placed within the context of an outfit — like say, paired with my basic, sporty, or oversized pieces — I love them. A little bit of contrast makes the whole look come alive.
So that style category you’ve decided isn’t for you? Maybe give it a second glance. A touch of it might be just what you need to give your style some extra zing and pep.
What do you think? What style category have you ruled out? Do you think you’d ever try mixing a small dose of it with your current style? And also — I tried this outfit with two different shoes — flip flops and Sambas. Which is your fav?
