Here’s how I styled my monochrome flared dress.
Holla! Holla!! In Wiz Khalifa’s voice
How are we all doing? Good, I suppose. The way the days keep flying I juss kent relate. I mean January has been divided in half already?? Like so soon???
Anyways, we all just need to be thankful always because it’s really the little things that count.
So on to this post, let me not waste time giving a motivational speech(es), I wore this lovely monochrome dress I’ve had for around a year now to a wedding that held in December 2016. It was actually my 4th and final wedding for the year and it turned out great because I got to meet up with some friends.
I initially planned to wear this dress with my Cobalt blue court shoes and my Mom’s Emerald green box clutch both previously styled here, but my Mom wouldn’t have it because it looked too “color riotic” to her.
So I gave in to her pleas, after taking tons of pictures for the gram of course in my blue courts, and toned down my look with these black court shoes also styled here.
They turned out great too and they were wayyyyy more comfortable compared to the blue courts (those shoes are not meant for walking tbh), I’ll never admit this to my Mom tho, so shhhhh! don’t let her know let us make it our secret.
I love this look so much, I’m definitely going to flood my Instagram (Follow me – @wanshygirl) with pictures because I’ve hoarded them enough. Plus shout out to my Primary School Mate – Friend- Make-Up Artiste all rolled in one, Valerie for beating my face real good. Ah! Mean that highlight lásán* definitely popping.
When it comes to Fashion and colors there are rules that are binding so as not to make a Fashion Fail/Blunder. There’s something called the Three Color Rule which I’m still trying to figure out (Google will help out eventually), yet I realized it really came to play here when I stuck with the colors Black, White and Emerald green and the hint of gold accessories were perfect in the right amount.
True, style is personal yet there are rules of fashion to guide you in defining your personal style.
So that’s it guys.
Blue courts or nahh!!? Which look did it for you? Let me know your thoughts.
