One the best parts after finishing up your new handmade garment is incorporating them into your wardrobe. Styling different looks using one specific piece is one of my favorite parts of the design process. I also think it is easy to get “stuck” by pairing things in only one or two ways. I am a totally lover of mix’n’match, breaking rules or experimenting with new trends.
Styled 3 Ways is a blog series that will show you how I or my friends aka my models or even my mom will style the looks. I will also style at least one of the 3 looks. I am so thrilled to be starting this series since it has been percolating in my brain for a few months about the ins and outs of how I wanted to share it here in this space. So, here we go!
This is my pal, J! Who I know you see around here all the time since she models for me quite often 🙂 This striped “Rosaline” is one of her favorites. The details are shirt length, 3/4 length sleeve, and scoop neckline. I had her pick out how she would style it for Look #2 & #3 and I helped with Look #1.
Look #1- Running Errands
I kept this one pretty simple, threw a side fishtail braid in her hair, added a pair of leopard flats with studs on the back for a little bit of edge (plus I adore mixing leopard with stripes!) along with some cuffed denim jeans. This is the sort of look that is pulled together yet easy to still pick up the kids or run errands and still look pulled together. Add a scarf or a chunky cardigan when the weather cools down a bit.
Look #2- Polished Summer
I love how J kept this simple and easy. Black shorts, a belt, some black flats,and her favorite pair of sunglasses. It’s polished yet comfy, and so very her!
Look #3- Office Ready
J picked this as the work attire. Straight leg black pants, a cardigan (because we all know offices blast way to much A/C), a long necklace, and heels. It is completely work appropriate and looks professional yet the stripes keep it fresh.
What do you think about this new series? What kind of looks would you be interested in seeing?
