Recently I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I revamped my wardrobe i.e debunked, raided and pulled out every item stuck in between hangers and rearranged it. While at it, I realized how my choice in clothes, accessories etc has changed over the period of time and significantly over a year or so. That is around the same time I started blogging, it is a natural progression I believe. But I also noticed that my will to experiment and wear things I once refused has also increased considerably. Another important takeaway is that; I now visualize-style the same old pieces I wore years ago but pair them very differently. Like I said its an organic process of growth, this most likely happens with each of us. I mean, have you seen your pictures when you were younger? We were all such fashion disasters, unless you were an exception following every Mtv trend! Looking back at some of my early outfit choices; some I say were decent and some make me cringe looking at them now. But then I’m glad that there has been a growth and my choices have evolved and changed for the better or I’d like to believe so. With time my need to revise, add, delete or just style pieces differently has also changed/increased. I’m most likely going to hate today’s outfit too in a month’s time because that’s how fast I change my style palette.
One factor that’s been constant since the time I understood clothes/fashion is my love for oversized pieces. This hasn’t changed and most likely will never change, if anything it has only increased. That is largely because as much as I want to stay in the stylish zone, I also want to be comfortable! My love for bright colors is out there on my blog, if you’ve been following me you’d know I love colors and I am totally unabashed about it. Somehow colors remind me of my roots; my vibrant colorful country and I probably pick that strong affiliation to colors from there. My inclination towards ethnic jewelry is also not a hidden secret, every person visiting my blog knows my love for jewelry. Especially statement pieces and I’ve been dying to sport these afghan earrings since a year. Somehow they never worked with the planned outfits and were disappointedly placed back in the drawer every single time. So, this time I made a conscious effort to style something that could integrate an ethnic vibe and blend well together. When I received this bright mustard colored turtle neck sweater (which btw is the warmest heavy knit I own) I decided, instead of toning down and balancing it, why not double it. It may not be a smart choice in the books of fashion, pairing a chunky knit with a chunky pair of earrings may be a no-no but how I loved it! I was so happy about how this look turned out, even though the bright mustard color is slightly overpowering, the earrings are able to stand out & draw equal attention. Combining ethnic pieces with western outfits has to be one of the most fun styling processes and its even more amazing when it turns out just how you had imagined.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Have an amazing day ahead.
