Well, I’ve loved that show all 10 years it was on TV, and one of Stacy and Clinton’s mantra’s that has stuck with me is: COLOR PATTERN TEXTURE SHINE.
Meaning, when getting dressed or when shopping for clothes, look for things like COLOR, PATTERN, TEXTURE, AND SHINE. Those things take an outfit from blech to BAM!
I have loved playing with mixing patterns and textures recently. Denim with polka dots and sequins. Or chevron and denim and lace. Because when you mix patterns and textures like that, and you look at it on, it’s almost like it was meant to be or something. Yet, when you really think about it, the combination can often be unexpected.
I have a little bit of an addiction to chevron, and this maxi skirt from BlueTique only fuels that addiction even more. It’s SO comfy and I love the neutral colors make it easy to pair with SO many things in my closet. It’s kind of one of my new favorite fall staples. Only thing I will warn you is that it’s a little see-through so be sure to wear a slip!
What “unexpected” but expected things are you doing with YOUR wardrobe lately? Are you a fan of mixing patterns and textures and colors and shine? Were you a WNTW fan? What lessons did you take away from that show?
