Style lusts the second time around this month will be pretty short. I only have a few. Since it’s still rather cold here, I’m saving some of my style lusts for further exploration in a couple of weeks. Let’s get started:
I have been so drawn to denim lately (as you can probably tell from my posts) and it isn’t limited to jeans (denim pants) but also jackets, skirts, shirts and heels. The thing about denim is that you don’t have to always dress casual to wear it. A dark colored denim dress with a pair of closed toe heels and a blazer easily changes the look from casual to semi-business. I’ve been slightly obsessing over denim jackets and coats. A couple of months ago I purchased a denim jacket from the thrift store. I can’t wait to show my look. It’s already put together. I’m just waiting on the weather to allow me to wear it. You can wear denim with just about anything. It’s a very easy piece to style. I’m loving denim jackets with various artistic and fun broach coverings. I’m also loving denim heels. If you love this trend but aren’t trendy, the heel option is a great way to incorporate denim into your wardrobe.
I love a good bodycon dress but the latest style that boasts a button down detail is really captured my attention. It’s a sexy detail that offers so many options to whatever other pieces you pair it with. Recently, I purchased a dress for this summer from The Line by K. My only gripe, the price is pretty steep at $105 per dress but I’m helplessly in love with this dress!!! She just released the dress again in one of my favorite colors: pink. What’s a girl to do? Anyhoo, you can pair this dress with a pair of minimalist heels for a sensual look or platform sandals for a more overt sexy look. I’m seeing more of this style in bodycon skirts and dresses becoming available at cheaper prices so keep on the lookout!!
I’ve worn overalls in the past but along with my recent lust for denim, I’ve been wanting a good pair of overalls. It doesn’t matter if the overalls are non-denim, I’ve just been drawn to them. I’d wear mine cuffed at the leg with perhaps a tank or crop top for a bit of an edge. I think a minimalist heeled sandal would work best with this look.
4. White Clothing
Sounds simple enough right? Well, I have not worn much white. The reason has been my weight. I had been uncomfortable wearing white all of this time but I no longer have a hang up with the color white. While I’ve lost a nice amount of weight, I’m nowhere near where I’d like to be. That being said, I’m no longer allowing myself to be held back by my weight. White is easily becoming one of my favorite colors to wear. It’s bold, bright and is the perfect palette for colorful add ons. I have a couple looks planned already with white as the highlight color. One way to pair white is with a colorful statement piece, perhaps a colorful jacket or pants.
Well, I told you this Style Lust “episode” would be short. Let me know if you’d like me to include beauty and fragrances into these Style Lusts. What are your style lusts this month?
