This time on Anatomy of an Outfit, we talk balance.
I am forever inspired by all the stylish creative people around me. One such person who kills it is my friend and co-worker, Bridgette. I walked past her and was like “Hold the phone! You are so going to be in my blog!” I have been thinking about doing an Anatomy of an Outfit post for a while and was trying to get something together in my head to make it great but then Bridgette walked in all her fierce glory and it was a sign! So here we go:
What makes a great outfit? BALANCE. That is absolutely the key to wearing any trend or putting together any great outfit. That’s why Coco Chanel’s advice is so clutch:
Want to try a bold pattern? Pair it with a solid.
Interested in a pop of color? Accessories are the way to do it.
Matching accessories make you smile? Don’t overwhelm yourself… shoes + bold necklace = perfect balance; the outfit doesn’t need a bracelet or big earrings as well. That’s too much!
You know what would help? A model rocking a sweet outfit… Check out how Bridgette nailed the art of balance.
Her outfit was perfect for office because it combines bright colors with the classic navy. She balanced the navy and white print that had that hint of pink with her pink necklace and pumps. She topped the whole look off with a cute side part wave and natural makeup. Hats off to Bridgette who nailed her outfit and helped with a quick lesson on balance and the anatomy of an outfit! Can’t wait to see what I come upon next!
