Every now and then I think it’s important to jump outside of your comfort zone and embrace styles that you wouldn’t generally reach for. That being said, to do this successfully, I think one must still incorporate elements of the things they already like so as not to completely feel unlike themselves. For me, this came in the form of a patterned chambray set. As a current lover of co-ords, I was already naturally drawn to this ensemble. However the pattern and pairing of the crop top and wide-legged trousers created a much more bohemian style that I’m not used to wearing day to day. That aside, I was intrigued and willing to give it a try nonetheless. One of the first changes I made to cater this look to my own personal style was wearing the top backwards. While I have no problem with a plunging neckline, I just felt like the illusion of a higher neck and slightly exposed back created a chicer silhouette. I’m always slightly relieved when I come across pieces that are heavily printed because it means I can keep my accessorizing to a minimum. Fortunately this time, because I opted not to carry a bag or layer an outerwear piece, I was determined to find a statement piece of jewelry to add a bit more drama to the outfit. Luckily it didn’t me long to find a beautiful pair of chandelier earrings with the same exact blue that matched my clothing incorporated, as well as gold and wood accents which further emphasized the boho-chic vibe. Since the pants were so long and I knew my shoe would barely be visible, I kept it simple with a pair of minimal brown heeled sandals to tie everything together seamlessly. What I love most about fashion are the opportunities for versatility and risk; because without both of these things our lives and wardrobes would be nothing short of boring. Let me know in the comments below what you think of this look. Until next time!
