We’ve all been there. We’ve picked up that piece in the store and thought to ourselves, “How the heck would I wear that???” Whether it’s a fringed floral kimono, over-sized harem pants (can they even be oversized?), strappy platform sandals or that mustard-colored top – because what matches mustard besides ketchup? – it can be a struggle sometimes.
I figured it’d be fun to put together some inspiration with my own favorite finds in a new feature, One Thing, Ten Ways.
And I’ll be showing you – you guessed it! – one thing styled in ten different fashions for hopefully easy inspiration, whether it’s for your next shopping outing or your own long overdue spring closet cleaning.
First up, my latest obsession: leopard wedge booties from the cutest boutique, Filly Flair. Major props to the fiancé for being my photog and the best person on the planet. #mush
Spoiler alert! I got my hairs cut. Another spoiler alert…you can get $5 off your own pair of leopard booties with the code ROSES. (And if you don’t like my shoes, well, you can just get $5 off any other full-price item instead.)
Now let’s talk the ten, from top to bottom, left to right.
First. Rocker chic with a black tee, moto jacket, and light ripped denim. I wore this for a casual date night with J this past weekend, and it was a hit! Jackets with detailing and ripped things can all get paired together for this combo, because it’s a bit rugged and a bit edgy and a whole lotta awesome.
Second. Cozy in a rust sweater and darkwash jeggings, with a black knit beret and infinity scarf. Finish with a statement bangle. Perfect for a cooler spring ala Paris.
Third. Glam in a fuschia dress with mesh cut-outs and a fascinator on top. Possibly going with this look for an act of my upcoming acapella show. (Yay? Nay? Whatchu think?)
Fourth. Edgy with a burgundy midi skirt and off-shoulder black tee. This says, “I like art and indie movies and local coffeeshops.”
Fifth. Festival ready with highwaisted booty shorts and a royal blue crop tank. For those days seemingly far into the future where weather is warm and sunshiney.
Sixth. Cute in a bright graphic sweatshirt (je t’aime!) and darkwash jeggings. Makes an everyday look trendy as ever. Swap in any graphic tee or sweater in a bright, poppy color and you’re good to go.
Seventh. Comfy in black leggings and a long red tunic. All knit solids put the snappy statement on your feet. This is a go-to comfortable outfit for traveling in style!
Eighth. Fun for everyday in a black chiffon tank with a pearl-detailed collar and rolled boyfriend jeans. Roll up those jeans so your fierce booties show. It’s glamorous but sexy but understated enough for everyday chic. What’s not to love?
Ninth. A chambray dress and glasses. Because chambray matches everything.
Tenth. Seeing spots in a black-and-white polka dot dress with tights. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns! Spots and leopard? #yes
