Have you ever looked at an outfit online/on the mannequin and thought damn, that looks good ? After you actually try it on, it never ends up looking just as good. I'm sure it has happened to you at some point and happens to me on the regular. Every store is full of 90s trends that I love and adore but I am a little skeptical if they'd look just as good on me. Like a metallic slip dress on a tshirt with some knee high boots..I have been lusting after that look for a while now only to realize even if I ever bought it, it would never see the light of day. So here's how I tackled being trendy but still keeping it wearable so that it confirms to my personal style.
I knew I had to get this slip top from Dorothy Perkins the minute I spotted it because my life's mantra is "Everything gingham needs to get in my closet" more often than not. I loved the fact that it is a slip top so I could finally try out the slip top on tshirt trend and the peplum was just a bonus! I paired these with some ripped jeans, replaced the knee high boots with my trusty black ballet flats and accessorized with my new favourite, mini backpack from Forever 21.
If you're really interested in trying a new trend but feeling a little conscious about it, I've got a few tips for you:
1.Experiment with one piece of clothing at a time and not go straight into recreating an outfit you saw on Pinterest/Instagram.
2.Choose a piece that would most definitely suit your style and body shape. A peplum is definitely something I'd prefer over a super skin tight slip top.
3.Adding most worn/safe pieces in a new daring outfit can make you feel so much more confident about wearing it.
4. Choose colours and prints that naturally go with the rest of your wardrobe and something that will mix well with the other pieces you have. Sure, getting that sparkly pink metallic slip dress is so tempting but sometimes you've got to hold it off.
And that's it! That's how I got this look together and felt pretty comfortable and confident in it all day. I know I'm going to be wearing it a lot more!
PS: I was having such a good hair day before the wind came and turned it into this...
