How to Style It: The Fringe Jacket
So this is kinda embarrassing but a few posts ago I tried on the popular One Teaspoon distressed jeans and claimed they weren’t for me. Well... fast forward to a month later when I walk into a Mendocino store and see them on one of the girls and fall in love with them! #neversaynever The pale grey-blue colour totally speaks to me and I can see them being worn in so many different ways.
Since I’m having so much fun playing with proportions recently, I paired the jeans with this white tunic that has high slits on each side. I’m such a fan of this particular top that I got it in two colours (or shades in this case) – black and white – what else? It can easily be worn as a dress if I wear a slip underneath. I’m thinking something with a little lace at the bottom and above the knee so there’s that little peekaboo effect when I walk. I must find a lace trimmed slip now!
I love having fun with texture so I topped off the tunic with this crème colour fringe cardi. It’s the perfect piece to transition my wardbrobe into spring and I know I’ll have it in my closet for years to come!
The accessories are kept minimal so I chose my nude suede Givenchy sandals. I bought these on Ssense last year (on sale!) and I’m so glad they’re in my life. Every girl needs a good nude sandal. The pink box bag is Zara. It was the last one and on sale. I love how it adds that little bit of colour but without competing with what I’m wearing.
What makes this outfit work is the colour palatte. Even though I’m wearing pieces that don't typically go together (mega distressed denim, a tunic and fringed cardi!) The colours unite the entire look. The star of the outfit is the cardigan and everything else just compliments it. Think about that the next time you get dressed. Make sure you have one statement piece and that everything else that you wear is secondary. Keep it consistent with small details and you can be really daring with your look and still be put together.
