Life is too short to wear boring clothes, and this outfit is definitely not boring. Topped off with this candy colored blazer in a classic silhouette, camo pants, stripes and LV stamps, I had so much fun wearing this look to plan outfits for one of my favorite clients. I first wore this blazer with a velvet skirt to Fashion Week (see the full post here), and then casually with boyfriend jeans (see that post here). Next I think I’m going to find the perfect shade of oxblood to layer underneath for a take on tonal dressing. Stay tuned!
Being that I just had to replace this striped shirt because I had worn out my original one, there is no shortage of ways I’ve worn these stripes. The drop shoulder gives it just the right amount of slouch, and the body fits in a way that it can be worn out or tucked in. Some of my favorite ways I’ve worn it are with a camo jacket and gold skirt, with a denim jacket and joggers and with floral pants and a moto jacket.
In my years of wardrobe consulting, a concept my clients and I discuss from time-to-time is whether they are willing to participate in a trend for a second time. Meaning that they loved, and rocked, a trend twenty years ago when it came around for the first time, but may or may not want to participate again when it’s back.
Well, I jumped at the chance to wear camo pants again this fall because I’m pretty sure I owned these pants in high school only they were from Abercrombie & Fitch, and were much more bootcut. I’ve been wearing them about every-other week since I got them, and love that they look great at school drop off and at Fashion Week alike (see how I wore them at New York Fashion Week here).
