Dressing Down A Sequin Skirt With The Classic White T-Shirt

Fashion is not about having thousands of outfits in your closet. It’s about making the most of what you already have. That includes mixing and matching things together that you’ve never thought to wear together before.  The goal is to get creative with your existing wardrobe. 

With trends coming and going, there’s one staple piece that remains a constant.  The white t-shirt!  It’s the easiest and simplest piece that every woman should own.  It can be paired with a million different fashion-forward looks.  So basically what I’m saying is that if you can pull off the white t-shirt with a pair of jeans, you can certainly pull it off with a sequin skirt.

What I like most about this skirt is the array of colors.  And with so many colors to choose from, I could really pair this skirt with a number of colored top options.  Yet for this look I opted for a plain white v-neck tee giving this look a more casual chic vibe, plus I half-tucked the shirt to give shape to my waist line.  To complete the look I decided these clear heels (that I hated at first) was the shoe to wear.

The moral of this post is that the basic white t-shirt is easy, comfortable and adaptable.  It’s one of the more versatile staple pieces: it dresses up, it dresses down, and it’s the blank canvas around which you can you build almost any outfit.  Btw, if you don’t have a white t-shirt… Get one!

Adding Color To Your Winter Wardrobe

This season I decided to add more colorful pieces into my winter wardrobe. Although there’s nothing wrong with the darker hues, color is just more exciting. Adding bold splashes of color is super easy and anybody (female or male) can achieve a stylish look.

The color that I choose for this look, pink, is still one of my least favorite colors, but here I am rocking it with style and grace. What’s funny is my silly reason for not liking the pink. I didn’t like pink growing up because I was a tomboy and wanted nothing to do with anything to feminine and girly. Nowadays it’s not even that big a deal.

Incorporating bright and playful colors into your winter wardrobe can range from pieces like this bubble gum pink blazer and sweater combo in today’s look or something as simple as a handbag, a belt or shoes. You could even add a pop of vivid lip color if you’re feeling frisky. Just to prove to you that I’m here for adding color to my winter wardrobe, check out this neon sweater look or this highlighter yellow hoodie look or my fave, this hot pink blazer look.

What are your thoughts on wearing color in the wintertime?

Is It Cool To Wear Sandals In the Winter?

One trend I just can’t seem to get into is wearing sandals in the wintertime.  Seeing this fashion statement in style magazines, on tv and down my social timelines let’s me know that there are plenty of women out here braving flu season by wearing their toes out. If I could get passed the thought of my toes freezing off due to the lower temps then maybe. I remember back in my “we be clubbin’ days inwardly laughing at some of the females standing in line wearing their tiny freakum dresses and heeled sandals - shivering. But you know what, I shouldn’t knock it until I try it, right?  And maybe one day I will. 

A stylish remedy for continuing to wear your summer sandals in the cooler months is super easy.  Just add a fun pair of socks (or tights). Think about how cute your NYE party outfit would look if you paired it with a cutesy pair of short or knee-length socks. Not only do you get to keep your feet warm, your outfit can still be dope. For your styling pleasure, check out a few looks where I’ve incorporated socks into my look >>> HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE.

The older I get the more my style evolves.  I was once the girl who would never be caught wearing anything pink or shiny and definitely not strutting around in a pair of heels.  Now here I am in a shiny sequin duster with a cute pair of pink and green heels on.  I wonder what my younger self would say to my slightly older self after seeing me in today’s look.    

Btw, I shot this look when the temp’s were warmer. What are you thoughts on sandals in the winter months?
