Playing it safe is not my forte. When it comes to fashion, I like to commit to keeping things strictly sophisticated…and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that 🙂 . In addition, I find it hard to restrict my constant need for chic appeal to certain times and occasions (except on lazy days when I feel like staying in pajamas…lol). My style preferences mostly involve taking on classic and eclectic elements. Overall, I love to rely on bold colors, beautiful prints, strong silhouettes and modern concepts to compose my outfits. While I’m all for looking dashing, I always strive to balance the glam in order not to go overboard especially when dressing up for work.
When I scout for fashionable pieces, I sometimes come across items that are stunning yet over the top. One great example that rings a bell is the floral jumpsuit in this post. This jumpsuit came with a striped belt from H&M. As much as I found the floral and stripe concept intriguing, I chose not to wear the striped belt with the jumpsuit. The belt is lightweight and has a casual feel to it, which gives the jumpsuit more of a playful appeal. Whilst I admire the mixed print trend this spring, the striped belt worn with the jumpsuit just seemed too much for me. This week, I went for a cool dazzle by wearing the floral jumpsuit and replaced the striped belt with a more elegant brown belt.
