Yesterday, a liker on my Facebook page posed a styling question:
I immediately went online to check out what would not only suit her for that particular occasion but also something that she could wear for other occasions, as you know I’m all about versatility – especially when you’re spending some hard earned money.
Larissa is lucky because colours are huge this season – pastels, bold colours and even patterns. I’ve shared three different ideas she can go with, these are of course just ideas she can apply to other types of dresses or separates, and not necessarily have to get them directly from the suggestions made.
With prints and colours being huge this season I thought why not combine the two with this printed dress from Country Road. I love how simple the cut is and this could take you from a semi-formal event by adding a light coloured blazer, nude heels and bag to something casual for another day simply by switching it with a pair of ballet flats and a cardigan or denim jacket. Accessories can be kept to a minimum thanks to the bold prints. Or for a casual take, Larissa only needs to add a plain coloured cotton scarf in any of the colours that are in the prints.
If prints are just too scary, then opt for dresses with colours and cut that have a pretty classic style like this one from Sussan. Larissa can dress it up simply by adding a belt in contrasting colour and a necklace with bold colours like this bib necklace with black and red on it. Then to make it slightly dressier, add a blazer, some heels and a bag. This dress is also versatile enough to wear casually when she swaps the heels with some ballet flats, and leaves out the belt. Add a light weight cardigan and Larissa is ready to go out shopping or even to the park!
If separates are more your thing, then this mandarin coloured pleated skirt would look great when paired with this simple cream tank. Complete your outfit with a light pink blazer to give it a more formal feel. Then with a few accessories like this necklace with a mixture of pastel colours, nude open toe heels and bag, you’re ready to rock that event! You can transform your look with a more casual vibe once again by switching your shoes. Maybe wear a pair of wedged strappy heels or flats. A neutral coloured jersey style top would go well with this bold coloured skirt, add a light printed scarf and you’re ready to go.
These are just a few options but you know you can create more looks with just these few pieces. I do hope this gives you some sort of an idea what to look out for Larissa. And the great thing is they are readily accessible in shops or online!
