Okay, so the weather has changed a bit and that cool breeze is starting to pick up. You ask, ‘But what does that mean?” Well, it means that the season to fall in love with jackets or coats is finally here (pun, intended).
Let your stylish animal out! Most wardrobes for springtime are filled with pastel colors but I wanted spice it up with some bolder patterns, prints and as always–color. Most of the color choices that I used in this outfit would be compared to the summer, but the white coat makes this look what I like to call “season-flexible.” It’s season-flexible because you can wear this outfit in the spring with pale or nude heels, and then in the summer with sandals (wedges – optional). I titled this look the concrete jungle because each article of clothing represents an animal or thing that can be found in the jungle and I’m a NYC girl, of course! Plus, the pants alone would make one feel like they were in a tropic jungle.
Random Tip: Let other surroundings inspire you. It could be the jungle or the desert or even an fuzzy friend (tigers, lion, etc.) You would be surprise with the looks you can create.
This is a great daytime date look. Who says you can’t be comfortably casual and cute?
Though this look is trendy, it is pretty casual, too. After all, it contains a denim top or chambray shirt–if you’re fancy. It screams bold yet casual because although each article of clothing is a statement in and of itself like say the cheetah print loafers and the bright red-orange pants, you can arrange them in a way to diverts the eyes from focusing on all three at the same time. In the meantime, your date can focus on you (wink, wink).
[Sidebar]: The cheetah print is an ongoing trend, it been around when my grandmother was living, when my mother was my age, and it’s still here. It’s always cool when someone asks me “where’d you get that top?”, because I can say that it’s from my mom’s closet without feeling weird. Nowadays, the looks from the past are the looks for the future, and the present looks are just from yesterday’s tomorrow. 🙂
Random Tip: Tucking and untucking a shirt can turn a dressy look into a casual look in a flash. Going to the theatre – tuck! Going to the grocery shopping – untuck! It’s the wonders of tucking.
