OOTD. The statement shoe.

20130702-092104.jpg

I think everyone has run across that incredible statement piece like that fluorescent bib necklace or dyed leather boots. But the reality of trying something new or a bit crazy for your style can be a bit daunting and intimidating.

I suggest doing two things 1) Add in moderation. You’ll notice in my OOTD that I paired an amazing pair of leopard oxfords with a relatively simple and neutral pant and shirt combination. Don’t be afraid of color but using it in moderation can really help being balance and confidence in a fashion endeavor.

2) Don’t be afraid to try something new and don’t be afraid to make a mistake. Fashion is all about fun and risk. I’ve had a million misses before many hits in my wardrobe, but what you learn in the process really develops confidence in your personal style and what exactly you can pull off.

But what about you? What’s your favorite statement piece and how do you pull it off?

    My statement pieces vary from outfit to outfit. Those gorgeous shoes are some statement 😉 … and love how you’ve paired them with such simple and toned down colors. Fabulous!

      Thank you! I totally agree BTW. And for people like us, there isn’t always such thing as a statement piece. In most other people’s opinions, the majority of my wardrobe is a “statement piece.” Ha. #fashionistaswag

    Dude, I have to say that you are an inspiration and I’m looking forward to your blog pieces. Thanks for the likes you left on my blog. I totally agree with everything you said. Your shoes are different but they definitely compliment the outfit and I truly agree with you that it works. I also believe in adding in moderation. I started out with the color block phase and now its become my signature look. A lot of my friends ask me how do I do it, and I tell them to just try on what ever they are thinking and look in the mirror. See what works and what doesn’t and just keep switching until you feel good. Color blocking comes natural to me and I’ll upload more posts of my color blocking in the future. I also whole-heartedly agree with your 2nd point about trying things new, taking a risk, developing confidence. It’s very true. Keep up the good work!!!

      Thanks for the props man! Color blocking is something that I’ve never tried before-some people like yourself are really awesome at it. I tend to just be too critical and an over thinker! Ha. I’d love to see some of your work!
