Today I decided to share how I would style silk print pants. I've been dying over these Stella McCartney ones for a while now so this is how I would dress them up:
For the dressed down outfit, I did black studs again but these are flat discs from Kate Spade and I think they add something while being so plain. I decided to go with a cobalt-colored sweater since I'm obsessed with that color this season, and also a big chunky scarf in grey, that picks up the pants. I think loafers are such a nice, casual shoe. SO much better than a sneaker or something. I like the studded detail on these a lot. It's not too much to distract from the star of the outfit, but enough to make it more than just a boring black loafer. And how great is that clutch? I died when I saw it. I have an edge in my personal wardrobe, so I'm loving it!
I hope you guys like this. I love outfits in which each piece has it's own "something special".. a stud detail, a gorgeous lining, a small skull (!), etc. That reminded me of a quote: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or to be beautiful" -William Morris. Anywho, I'm super into styling and how pieces can look different depending on what you're wearing them with and I'd love to do it for a living. Fashion design/styling is what I'm aiming for. I made both of these looks on Polyvore and you can click on them to find all these pieces individually (I've also linked them below each set).
Please be aware, I am a firm believer in reasonably priced clothes, but some of these pieces are outrageously pricey. If you know me, you know I love fashion and I would love to be able to play with the most extravagant and expensive pieces all day, everyday. That's my dream! But not everyone can do that, and I especially can't (I am beyond broke) so please don't think that I live that life and yadda yadda. These are specifically examples and I don't think you ever need to spend a fortune to look fabulous. Please take these as only inspirations and find pieces that are equally beautiful for less. (Maybe I should make that a regular series on here?) /end rant
I hope you're all having a good Monday. (Aren't they the worst?) Can you not wait for it to be Thursday?!
