I love a good editorial. And this shoot from REFLEX magazine is one of my current favorites. Whoever styled this is OBVIE a pro at taking things that might seem a bit extreme or strange and using layering to make them really wearable! I especially love the blazers and bowties! I’m constantly trying to learn from editorial styling as well…point being, that layering is in fact an awesome way to really rock that piece you’re afraid of wearing.
Unless you’re the kind of person who just loves to wear clothes purely for wearing clothes sake, balance is something you probably really care about. I don’t blame you. I don’t exactly identify with you, but none the less, I figured it would go a long way to address it.
At some point or another, every one of us has been in a store where you either loved the way something looked on a display or perhaps an expert salesman talked you into trying something new. You went ahead and took the plunge and made the purchase, but the item has sat in your closet ever since. I would highly suggest googling images of the look you purchased to help you visualize someone who has successfully pulled off your look and then try layering your piece with something a little bit more subtle. Wear a neon bow-tie with a SIMPLE and muted button up. Or rock that oversized gold bib with with a plain black t-shirt. You’re way more prone to re-wearing something and definitely being more comfortable with your outfit if it’s not completely overwhelming. So pair your daring with your dependable. Best of luck in your fashion endeavors and have fun!
