Hi, guys. I have a special post for you this time. It was inspired by a website that I came across a few weeks ago and I decided to write a post about something that a lot of us have problems with.
Now I know everyone in the world has something in their closet that has never worn or we don't know how to style it. Of course, I have a lot of these items and I'm not ashamed to admit it. But lately, I am trying to buy things that I'm 100% sure that I will wear. I've gotten a lot better at this. My main problem at the moment is shoes, but we can talk about that in another post. So today I want to share with you a piece of clothing that I got from someone 2 years ago and I still haven't worn it. It's been sitting in my closet for too long. To be honest, I didn't even try to style it, but today I did it. I finally decided to do something with it. I mean it still has a tag on it - not anymore haha.
The item I'm talking about is this beige blazer which is made from a soft velvet material. To be completely honest with you, I don't really like blazers anymore. I mean I used to when I was in high school but I noticed it's just not my style, and I don't feel the most comfortable in them. The colour of this one is also not my favourite. Still, I decided to give it a shot and try to create a look with it.
When I was looking at it, I knew I wanted something subtle. I immediately saw that I will need a simple top underneath, but I still wanted to add something to it. So I took this top from Zara which is very fit and underneath I decided to pair it with a bra that has this black detailing which is seen above the top. I just think it adds a bit of dimension to the whole outfit. For my pants, I opted for some high-waisted skinny jeans. They are dark blue and a bit stretchy as well and they're from Primark. I tucked the top in it and that was it. For my shoes, I wore some purple stilettos tinged with a bit of gold colour. You can choose just about anything here. I saw that the whole look lacks colour so I pulled out some funky pumps and that was it. I also notice that the inside of the blazer had a fun pattern so I also rolled up my sleeves and made the outfit more playful. I could've also added a scarf around my neck to make it look fancier. I realised there are so many options to choose from when I started styling this outfit. Quite frankly, I enjoyed this little challenge a lot and I'm super excited that I came across this website that gave me the idea. You can check it out if you want to and maybe get some inspiration from it: Dia&Co.
I really hope you enjoyed this post and now maybe you can try something similar because I'm almost positive we all have something we don't know how to style or we don't feel the most comfortable in. That doesn't mean something doesn't suit us. I remember when I was little, I wore the craziest outfits in the world. Neon shirts, hot pink sneakers and I never cared what everyone thought of me. I never wondered what people thought of my style. So I started thinking what changed? Nothing's changed, I just let people get to me and I decided to put an end to this. I'm going to wear whatever I want and I know I'll look great in it because it's my own creation and I have fun with it.
Have a great weekend everyone and try wearing something you've always wanted but was too afraid of other people's judgement. xo
P.s.: my cameraman (sister) is on vacation so I had to improvise with pictures.
