I have actually worn this outfit a few times and finally just posting this now.
About This Outfit:
[The Outfit]: I am wearing a black bandeau with pink lace detailing from Victoria’s Secret. I purchased this a couple years ago at a semi-annual sale and the moment I saw it, I just knew I would be able to find creative ways to style this out in public (I suppose it was totally not intended this way, lol but I found a way to make it work ;)). Bandeaus are great layering pieces and the lace detail adds a pop of color, which I’m all about! Although bright colors are on trend this season, if you haven’t noticed, I’m already obsessed with bright colors!
The black stretch high waisted skirt is from Bebe. I purchased this during the holidays. Although I have only worn it a few times, I find this to be such a wardrobe staple. I’ll find a ton more ways to style it, believe me!
The long white open cardigan is from Express. I love this layering piece, it really completes a lot of outfits while keeping the skin exposure to a minimum.
The nude lace up shoes are by Christian Louboutin. Yes, these are the love of my life, so I try to wear them sparingly, but being that they are nude, they truly go with just about anything.
[Where to wear this outfit]: I have worn this outfit a couple times already. Once while out with a friend and also on Mother’s Day. I like it that much!
- This outfit not only happens to capture current trends (with pop of hot pink and exposed midriff), but also is a true reflection of my stylish soul. I love that there is a high contrast between the colors and the layering is simple, yet so visually intriguing.
- I am completely in favor of the exposed midriff this season. The key to styling this trend tastefully is to make sure you’re still covered up and not completely exposed. That’s why the long white cardigan is a necessity!
- I actually styled this outfit a year ago, except with a pair of high waisted black shorts. Both variations of the outfit are stylishly effective and there is no doubt that I will be wearing this outfit throughout the season.
[Fashion for Thought]: A fabulous outfit does not always necessarily need to be trendy, but it should always be a true representation of who you are.
I always dress for aesthetics and physical comfort comes secondary. By that I mean that I do not feel “comfortable” unless I’m aesthetically comfortable with the visual outcome. When looking at an outfit, if something bothers me visually, I reach a state of discomfort. Whereas, wearing a pair of 4″ heels does not phase me whatsoever. It may not be the most physically comfortable thing in the world, but visually, I’m content and that’s what matters most from my styling standpoint.
