4 Looks That Won’t Go Out of Style – My Way



You know if I share looks with you that I have to make sure I can walk the walk and pull together the looks from my wardrobe as well. So, here they are my 4 looks that won’t go out of style.

The Printed Dress:

Why this works – I followed most of my suggestions from yesterday. I chose one of my most crazy printed dresses but made sure it is in a classic style, this one is a wrap dress and selected shoes that match one of the colours in the dress. They don’t quite match in the photo but look great in real life so I will stick with them as my choice. I used the black jacket to ground the look and it also allowed me to get a little more wild with the statement necklace. Otherwise I kept it simple and clean with an orange watch and envelope clutch, passing on a stack of bracelets. This dress is a jersey fabric which makes it so comfortable to wear and as it was purchased at Target it was a great buy!

The Pencil Skirt:

Why this works – Again, I followed the rules from yesterdays post, mostly, and went with a classic colour with a modern twist. The classic being that the skirt is basically black and the modern being the chain print, it also has a leather waist band which you can’t see in this look. Some would say the print is classic too as it evokes thoughts of Hermes scarves and Chanel handbags. The top is a light weight jumper/sweater with tiny sequins and dolmen sleeves. As I have done before, adding the black belt gives it a bit of a peplum look and to add to the vintage feel my tri-colour shoes that are screaming 40s. I like the clutch keeps it from becoming too vintage, so even though there is a vintage vibe to the whole look there is plenty about it that is modern and fresh.

The Coloured Pants:

Why this works – I know, you are thinking these aren’t coloured pants, but they are! They are actually a blue-grey colour linen pant from Ralph Lauren and I love the colour but find I can’t wear them with blue or grey so thought they would be perfect with this recent op/thrift shop find from Naked Art. The shirt is silk and the colours are fantastic and eye-catching. I have gone with a silver multi-hoop necklace and silver leather clutch, added in silver, purple and turquoise bracelets and finished the look with a pair of kitten heels that are heavily beaded in silver and blue-grey. Yesterdays tip suggested go big and bold which I have done with the shirt and accessories.

The Smile:

Why this works – This is one of the few pictures of myself that I actually like. Probably because I am about to have a coffee and chocolate! Two of my favourite things along with fashion. What works in this picture is that it is a real and genuine smile. The Fashion Mister had made one of his usual witty yet sarcastic comments just before taking the picture and I’m happy with the result.

There we have it, 4 looks that won’t go out of style and are worthy of investing in.

Most important thing to remember – a real smile never goes out of style!
