Outfit Post – Light Layers

I am loving the fact that I can still get away with wearing only light layers. My winter coats are out and ready for the chill, and so is the rest of my wardrobe. Light layers are all I am wearing at the moment because the weather permits it and I am seriously making the most of it, before I am only able to wear big winter coats. How is the weather where you are?

The blue Sangro jacket I have on is a new wardrobe addition. I love the blue shade a lot. It is a great fit and it is a great light jacket to have around. This Sangro Jacket is good for all year round but it is great for the spring and autumn weather, as the weather isn’t as cold. It has a fully waterproof shell which makes it ideal for rainy days. I am so in love with this stunning piece. It is currently my favourite jacket.

The leggings is also kind of new. I am forever buying new pairs because I am forever wearing them. Leggings are dead comfy and easy to style, which is why I find myself reaching for them almost everyday. They are just so easy to wear and this beauty here ticks all the right style boxes.

I am hoping the weather stays cool for longer before the winter chill hits with a vengeance. The weather forecast promises we won’t be waiting too long for the chill to hit but for now, I am enjoying the lovely autumn weather and my new Sangro Jacket. Hope the weather is good where you are.

How to Add Playfulness to Your Style With Polka Dots

Polka dots can be trendy if you know how to style them just right. They add a lot of fun and playfulness to your style. If you wear polka dots, no matter how small, they would always stand out.

Just like other patterns, styling a polka dot piece can be tricky especially when you’re trying to figure out which outfits you can match your polka dots with.

However, whether you’re looking for ways to add some playfulness to your outfit or you simply want to know interesting ways you can incorporate the lively vibe polka dots give to your style, then I’ve got you covered. Here are easy ways you can work the playful polka dot in your wardrobe.

 

  1. Get outfits with polka dot detail

If you’re trying to test the waters with polka dots then this is a good starting point for you. Opting for outfits with polka dot detail help you ease into polka dots and still get to rock the playfulness they offer. The polka dot details can come in form of polka dots embroidered in the fabric or a dotted mesh.

A neutral top with polka dot details is every easy to style with a plain coloured skirt or trousers. You can match the neutral coloured polka dot top with bright coloured bottoms to add some contrast and fun.

 

  1. Accessories that give you a touch of polka dots

You may not be brave to wear polka dots from head to toe. But you can wear accessories that give a hint of polka dots. That’s enough to add some playfulness to your style.

Take for example a lovely pair of polka dot heels or ballerina flats. The presence of polka dots is not too overwhelming but it is conspicuous enough to stand out and add some fun to your style.

Another accessory you could add to introduce some polka dots to your outfit is a handbag with polka dots on it. This small addition could add some playfulness to your outfit. So you don’t necessarily have to wear polka dots, instead, just carry the handbag around. It’s fun and trendy as well.

 

  1. Mix and match your polka dots

Polka dots stand out on their own. And so when you mix them with simple pieces especially if they are in a single colour they make your outfit look fun. So whether you wear a bright coloured polka dot shirt and layer it over a pair of jeans or a pencil skirt, you’ll look amazing either way.

 

  1. Wear polka dots from head to toe

So far, we know that polka dots work great with other pieces, but do they look great on their own? Of course they do! And they deliver on all the fun and playfulness you want to achieve in your look.

A polka dot dress is a classic and it looks fun and chic at the same time. If this trend seems a little too much for you, then you can layer your polka dot maxi or midi dress with a blazer or create contrast with a nice chunky belt on your waist.

Is Fashion Turning to Craft

I’ve always seen fashion as a reflection of your sense of what you term beautiful.

All of the greatest fashion designers who have ever lived on the face of this earth created each piece of clothing with the inspiration that came from events that happened, people they’ve met or places they have been to. They used their talent to paint a picture of a man or woman with personality and character. Fashion designers spoke through the clothes they create.

But where does it all come from?

Everyday you wake up in the morning and mix and match your clothes together just to find the right ensemble to make you feel confident enough to step out of your house and start a new day. Who doesn’t want to look good, right?

But the more I studied the fashion industry and the dynamics behind it, I started to realize that there’s more depth to just putting items of clothing together.

Have you ever sat down to listen to what fashion commentators say about a fashion designer once their models have left the runway? They analyze every single piece, touching different aspects of it from the colour palette the designer used, the clever cutting, the genius behind their choice of fabric and even the mood the pieces vibrate.

There are even blogs nowadays where people give their own comments on the latest fashion. Whenever I make my Outfit Posts, I also drop my own perception of the outfit I chose to wear for the day. In a nutshell, everything that comes with your outfit has its meaning and defines your style.

Fashion stylists have a special place in the fashion industry. They know exactly how to put together the right items to create the desired effect. For example, there are some clothes that can either flatter your assets or hide them from view. There are also outfits that can make you look taller, shorter, fatter, or slimmer than you naturally are.

We would say that such people know the laws behind optical illusions, but they know their craft. They know the weight of the effect clothes can have on your style and the way people perceive you.

We’re slowly moving towards an age where nothing goes to chance or mere guessing anymore. There are angles, dimensions, rules, laws, perceptions, theories and history behind fashion now. People no longer observe fashion and let it just simply slide by. People study fashion and everything associated with it.

A stitch, cut or trimming can alter the balance of your style. If you choose the wrong outfit in the wrong season or you feel you could carry over an item of clothing, you need to think carefully about it. You need to be precise with fashion.

Does this mean that just because fashion is a craft no one else can get it right? Absolutely not! Fashion is also born from inspiration. You may experience a spark that will unleash your most magnificent style. There’s really no limit to how far you can go.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think fashion is a craft?
