Trying Out Stylings
Hi everyone! I've been spending some time playing with clothes in my closet and experimenting with different looks. I can't say that I love all the looks I'm going to share with you today but it was helpful for me to try out some new stylings and also to take pictures of them. A picture is truly worth a thousand words when it comes to styling. My hope for you is to get some good ideas for how to style some of your outfits and how colors work or don't work. Be sure to tell me what you think in the comments!
First up is a mustard yellow swing style dress that I thrifted recently. I have to admit that this color is probably not the best against my fair skin but I have been wanting some yellow tone pieces to wear and this dress caught my eye. It is a crepe material, fully lined and is very comfortable. I know it would be a terrific summer dress. I'm not sure it is for me, however. I decided to wear a belt with it since without one it is very flowy and makes me look big. You'll see that on the next photo. Anyway, I am wearing a thin black belt, black shoes and a black choker style necklace.
Here is how the dress looks without the belt. What do you think? With or without the belt? And what about the color against my skin tone?
Next up is a light blue skirt worn with a cobalt blue shirt. I decided to try tying the shirt at the waist and seeing how that would look.
Hmmm...can't say I love this look either. The shirt would be too long if I left it untied. I like the cobalt blue color with the lighter blue in the skirt. But, the overall look doesn't do much for me. What do you think? I've had a really hard time finding any top that seems to work with this skirt.
Here's another try with a patterned top with the light blue skirt. This looks pretty good if I wanted a super casual look in the summer. But, I still feel that the top needs to be just a little shorter. The jury is out on this look. What do you think?
Sometimes, just looking in the mirror is not enough for me. I need to try pieces out several ways and even take a picture! Doing all of that can help me to see what works and what doesn't with style. How about you?
I love hearing from you!
Until Next Time,
