Stiffness in casualness. If you think about it, this set is exactly that. If I replaced the high heels with a pair of sneakers, fashion sunglasses with a pair of regular glasses, … It would look a bit more casual. However, this way we have elements of both stiffness and casualness and it’s styled perfectly.
I surprised my own self. Normally, I would style this top with a pair of either white or light blue trousers. Skirts would work, as well. I like the “boring” and “traditional” matching. I was never a fan of too many colours working together, even though those can be styled beautifully as well. However, I did style it with a black colour, so I haven’t taken such a huge step ahead … 😀
My favorite item is the skirt. I like the fact that it’s a bit of a “see through” at the bottom. It brings the youth to the item itself. With this kind of length, if we used the whole material without the see through, it could come off as stiff. This way, we are feminine (since the skirt isn’t short), but not stiff.
Since the style is quite dark (without the top), we could experiment a bit more with the shoes. I was thinking about adding either white or gentle blue high heels(I know, that typical styling AGAIN …). If you are more daring, you can use red, purple … If I decided to pick a “daring” colour, it would have been a gentle and soft one, considering the shade of the top. These shoes are a bit in between both black and dark blue, so even though I styled this whole style myself, I would have changed that.
Now we add accessories. Just because of the pattern on the top, I wouldn’t add any necklaces. A bracelet? Maybe.
I added a purse and gentle pink sunglasses. You know me, though. If I can add a hat, I WILL add a hat.
Bottom line, I like what I styled.
