Overall, this is a look that is very My but that people would probably not assume to be. I have realised that when it comes to creating looks I am gradually expanding my comfort zone by constantly getting out of it. This is a perfect example of where I have done just that. I really like how it turned out and I feel like it has brought me one step closer to truly figuring out my style. Below are some of the key thoughts behind creating it as well as my reflections regarding it as a whole.
Since I managed to follow my three-point rule (explanation) with the silver shoes, bag and necklace (I actually have silver glitter in the eyeliner as well, just an FYI) my original thought was to just complement with basic items, letting the silver be the main focus. But then I had a “hey, yolo”-moment (explanation #2) and decided to do the complete opposite: go all in with shiny materials.
As you can see in the photos above the pants are semi-shiny and the jacket is glossy with silver details, thereby following the silver theme. I find that all of the shiny/glossy components together intensify the effect of the finish without shadowing one another, creating a unitary look.
Contributing to the above stated is probably the factors I have added to achieve balance. The striped cotton tee serves two puroses, the first being to work as a “middleman” between all of the shine (more is more, but more of more often becomes too much). The second is to create a contrast against the modern and slightly futuristic pieces by adding a classic print: stripes. That contrast is also achieved by the messy, bohemic hairstyle. Furthermore, the black, white and silver theme is cut off by adding a pop of orange-red on the lips.
I hope you like this post and that I will meet you back here soon. Stay original, gorgeous! xoxo
