Back to School 2015
When attempting to describe a person’s style, catch-all words like preppy, girly, sporty, boho, and goth might pop into your head. It’s easy to categorize clothing into neat little boxes, but where’s the fun in that?
I always say it’s not what you have in your closet that makes personal style interesting, it’s how you put it all together. The mixing of contrasting elements might be my favorite way to make an outfit stand out. An example would be, wearing a geeky graphic tee with a floral skirt, or wearing a lacy dress with combat boots.
Let a T-shirt do exactly what it’s made to do: relax things. Don’t be afraid to rock your favorite saying or something you find funny. A graphic tee can contrast nicely with something like a sequined skirt. And, sometimes it’s not all about dressing up, but instead dressing down. Like this tee suggests, be yourself and wear what makes you feel confident.
For Fall I’m loving the muted pastels like this color dusty rose in denim. Softer pastels always look great with neutral colors like gray and cream.
This might sound like a no-brainer, but spending an extra few minutes on your hair will transform your look and give you confidence to rock any outfit. You can find quick tutorials all over YouTube and Pinterest. Check out a few of my past tutorials:
Here I added a loose messy braid on “the quick” during our shoot. The hair is an easy compliment to her flowing skirt and crochet top.
Try making a private board for yourself on Pinterest where you pin style inspiration. You can even add photos of you personally when you find yourself wearing a great outfit combo that you don’t want to forget.
Ripped denim and loose tops are having their moment in fashion right now. Here both girls are wearing relaxed look of denim in a skinny jean with looser flowy tops.
A soft denim shirt is a must have for everyone’s wardrobe. I like this sort of “off- duty” look. Hats are also a favorite of mine, especially in the Fall. This rancher style hat is timeless and can be added to any look making it more casual.
I might be ready to ride away on a horse into sunset — or something like that.
