Getting stuck in a fashion rut is definitely not new for me, or most of us for that matter, so one of the things I love to do to get me out of it is have someone else style me; I’ve tried it with my younger brother who styled me an entire week of work in the office (which you can find on my #OOTD highlight on my Instagram), and now tried it with my bestie who kindly agreed to pick out four or five outfits I wouldn’t normally wear.
She picked pieces from my wardrobe as well as hers to complete the looks she envisioned. I absolutely love how she made me try new styles I wouldn’t usually go for, and she aced every single look if you were to ask me.
A floral button-down, white jeans, comfortable heels, yellow sunnies, a red lip and a white structured bag. This look screams sophisticated summer. I would wear this to go out for dinner at a not-too-chic-yet-not-so-casual-either spot during summer for sure!
Keeping the white base of the previous outfit, we went for an oversized button-down in a very airy fabric, then added a pop of colour with another gorgeous structured bag. Hoops completed the look.
We changed the bag and made another outfit out of this. This truly goes to show that accessories are crucial in making or breaking a look, as well as giving you so many options to wear your pieces in different ways for different occasions.
I’m glad my girl took it upon herself to drag me out of my comfort zone and have me try new styles and different looks, this being one of them. I would never have thought about wearing my scarf this way nor going for this kimono with these trousers, yet I love the look. She calls this rich-classy-boss-bitch attire and I can see why 😂 .
Bright colours are expected during summer and I love how uplifting they can be to one’s mood. Thankfully we found a handbag that matches this top quite perfectly.
Last but not least, my most challenging and unexpected outfit of all for very obvious reasons. I completely adore this swaggy look inspired by the queen Neelam Hakeem.
I live for comfortable looks and would most definitely try to recreate this with trainers soon for a concert or a solo feature on my blog.
