You know how you get "on a roll" with clothes sometimes and every outfit you create looks great? I THOUGHT I was on one of those until I went through my photos this morning. What I found instead was that I have forgotten a key rule for dressing my frame. Observe....
Here we have a color combination that I love...pale aqua skinny jeans with black and silver. Note the loose, blousy top, and tight bottom. Comfy to be sure and it feels safe to wear because it easily hides all my less than stellar bits. Example Two...
Hmm...it's a purple, blousy top and some skinny jeans. I see so much of this look out there in the blogosphere but I have to tell you that as comfortable as it is for me to wear, when I look at these images I notice that this type of shirt does not really do my figure any justice. I am big busted (I wear a 36DD) so the loose fabric hangs off of those bad boys and makes my whole top half look larger than it might actually be.
This is not to say I feel I should be wearing bandage dresses all the time to emphasize my Kardashianesque frame, but that I need to be vigilant about keeping my proportions in mind when I shop. I have to stop letting what is prevalent in the stores, and beautiful on other people sway my purchasing decisions.
[And if I'm going to go for this look for the comfort factor perhaps limit it to once a week and not every dang day! LOL.]
