One thing that will always ring true for me, in terms of fashion or design, is comfort. As soon as I walk through the door, one of the first things I do is change into my lounge wear. I never get dressed unless I’m leaving the house or we’re expecting company.
OK, so you went out on a whim and bought this really cool and edgy boyfriend-style shirt, loved it in the store and brought it home – just for it to take up space in your closet because you don’t know what to pair it with? Well, I’m here to help with today’s Outfit Inspiration:
I love me a good boyfriend-fit shirt and straight-leg jean combo. Notice i didn’t say skinny jean – although that could be cute as well, but perhaps a little overdone. Straight-leg jeans give the knees and ankles more breathing room. A true straight cut is where the width of the hem is straight from the hip to the ankle. The waistline lies between the super-tight fit of a skinny jean and the relaxed slouch of the boyfriend jean.
I like a straight-leg jean to stop at the ankle so that they can show off an amazing shoe and a bonus is that it makes you appear taller. To balance out some of the volume and masculinity of this outfit, I paired it with a SUPER sparkly girly heel. Comfort and fashionable for the win!!
I would pull this look off on a casual Friday at the office, brunch with the girls, or even a road trip. Finish it off with a cute animal print bag, a few small delicate necklaces and a mane full of loose curls.
What pieces are in your closet that you don’t know what to pair with or how to style? I will create a post on the most common wardrobe frustration from the comments below.
