Nope, my style hasn’t changed!
I thought a little mix of the unusual with the usual will be ideal for today’s look. Why stick to the norm when you can do the unusual ?
No matter how rugged I try to style my look, I always end up gravitating towards clean lines, modern classics and minimal styling. Today, I decided to add some edge with my look of the day with the mix of print and colours.
Before I narrate the styling, I will like to remind you that there is no point trying to be or dress like some one else.
Be your own best you. Oops, your best you is the title of a book I read! Love it much.
The key to embracing your own style is to know your personal style. Do you know yours? Here’s the post on PERSONAL STYLE
For my look today, I paired denim on denim with a fuchsia blazer. To tie my look together, I wore a pair of burgundy pumps and a zebra print bag which I made into a clutch.
WHY MIX DENIM ON DENIM WITH BURGUNDY & PINK ?
Black and white mix well with many colours. Both colours are considered classic colours.
Black and white mix well with pink which is bright and bold and they also mix well with red which is classic and the popular pop of colour most people reach for.
Remember I always mention that your pop of colour doesn’t have to be red only. With this look, I did double the pop of colour showcasing pink and red on different shades of blue.
I mentioned that my purse is actually a handbag that I turned into a clutch !
What I did…..
1, I packed everything I needed in my bag (not so much to enable me achieve the clutch result).
2, I ensured everything sits in the middle of the bag to avoid things from moving all over the place.
3, I folded the bag into clutch and shaped it the way I want it to be.
4, Tried it out in front of a mirror and voila !
See the below picture for how the bag looks originally……….

Mixing print and colours is nothing new under the sun. For “colour novice”, pay attention to what you are doing, when you are done, ask yourself if you are happy with your creation, if you are, you are good to go. Always remember that fashion rule, feel free to take out something if you think you have done too much. Remember less is more.
To be on the safe side, start your pop of colour creation with one colour 🙂
I hope you like the styling. So tell me, how do you add some edge to your own look. Would love to read from you.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I am always very happy to see you stop by.
Wishing you a fantastic day/weekend filled with lots of colour.
Much Love, Mojisola.
