My last post got me thinking about Gossip Girl after comparing it to the set up of Monster High. I don’t know about you ladies but my favorite was Blair Waldorf’s style and personality. Looks like a nice girl on the outside but capable of dark and evil. Let’s focus on the style part of Blair that makes her stand out. What is her signature style?
You’ll often see her wearing skirts, dresses and shorts that during the cold winter season are paired with tights. You see? When there’s a will, there’s a way. The ultimate girly girl who avoids the option of wearing jeans. Don’t be afraid to use tights that have designs. When you’re wearing a coat, it’s what people see and not the outfit underneath all the cover.
Your coat is as much an accessory as your jewelry. Having different styles and colors of coats can be used to match different outfits which gives you more options to play around with.
An outfit isn’t complete without the right hair accessories. It’s like the cherry on top of a banana split. Headbands, hats,
Either match them with your shoes or make them the highlight of the outfit and let it stand out. Every girl may have her go-to daily handbag, I know for sure that’s been me for the past year since I started working. No matter how small, it can make a statement and is a staple for any girl going out.
Pops of Color
By color, I mean Red. Red is something we often struggle based on shade as well as in combination with everything else we have in our closets. Have no fear. Red speaks louder than even more than emerald green or yellow. Red is the color of life and is empowering. Use it as much as you can if you think your outfit is to basic or safe.
Minimal (Loud) Animal Print
Seeing animal prints on anything excites us and lures us into the trap of overusing the print itself. Wearing zebra striped hat, and coat, and shoes definitely shows how much you love prints but can be overwhelming and loud in the wrong way.
Complementary Prints and Colors
Be playful with your wardrobe. This means not everything must match. Try experimenting and perhaps you might find that certain prints actually work together and was a missed opportunity by magazines to exploit and you’re the first to flaunt it.
This includes negligee, lingerie, bodysuits, and robes. Just because you’re staying in doesn’t mean you can’t look good for yourself. It’s easy to go to the bathroom and find yourself looking at a stranger in the mirror only to realize it’s yourself but in a different light. It’s part of how you feel when you’ve gotten used to primping yourself before going out and when having no motive to brush wild, morning hair. Even if you’re not expecting anyone to come over, you’ll never know if someone does and you’ll need you’re lovely robe to cover your intimates.
