When it comes to my style, I’m just making it up as I go along. I’d argue that we all are! In fashion, the rules are set by others. In style, you’re in complete control of a look.
While I’m happy to be sporting a teal bow belt from Emily, this outfit was actually created around my peplum sleeveless top! In this post, I’d love to share with you one of my personal “rules” for getting dressed that tricks others into thinking that I know what I’m doing, in terms of clothes.
This top is my favorite kind of thing to style because it’s just so vibrant. It also has a bunch of colors that can help me put together an outfit. That’s where my trick comes in – you can just pull colors from a multicolored top and it’s almost a cinch that everything you wear with it will match.
By default, I think a lot of us just want to wear basic colors and call it a day. While I did do that by pairing my top with black jeans, I wanted the rest of the outfit to be fun.
This top has hues of blue and pink so I added my pepto pink jacket, Emily’s teal bow belt, a ridiculous cocktail ring (I don’t even know where it came from!) and matching teal shoes. Voila, it looks like I knew what I was doing when really all I did was match the colors of my outfit to my top. It’s elementary!
