A shot in the dark

Confessional: These pants have been hanging around in my closet for the past one year.

Disco pants are fun and crazy and depict boldness and confidence. They are so good to look at but so scary to actually wear. It took me quite a while to figure out what exactly compliments these pants; I didn’t want to just pair it with a white top cause that’s very predictable. After a considerable amount of time I found this striped crop top that somehow managed to get engaged with these disco pants and I thought it was definitely love at first sight. I paired this with white heels for a night out look but you could also just pair it with a pair of good white sneakers for a more casual look. I think the first step to becoming fashionable and open to different new ways of styling clothes is to be confident while doing so. As long as you’ve got your sas on, you’re good to go.

Hey guys! So I’m back with the most exciting post. Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of pictures of the off shoulder shirts and came across a DIY on how to recreate the look.

All you’ve got to do, is unbutton those bad boys until the shirt can just about hug your shoulders. Voila, and that’s literally it for this style.

Personally, I feel like this is the best way to use the most boring shirt you have in your closet and make it the most stylish. You can adjust the buttons custom to your own liking as they make it easy for you to control how much skin you want to show.

In contrast to unbuttoning your shirt, you can even button it up all the way giving you the perfect sophisticated look. You can also pair it with a necklace to amp it up a notch.

Last but not the least, there is a trick I learnt from… actually I don’t remember who, which is to always tuck long tops into your pants to look a bit more polished.¬†Unfortunately, tucking my tops in began to look monotonous, which is why i started tucking my tops half way making myself look poised and modish.

These tips and tricks certainly come in handy when you see a boring old shirt hanging in your closet, begging to be worn. The best part is, they’re pretty simple to recreate. So go back to your closet, where you’ve put aside those boring shirts, and start experimenting with some of these looks! You never know, you may come up with something better!

Kick back to the 70’s

Thanks to Coco Chanel, stripes were born into the fashion industry in the early 1900’s earning its place in our wardrobes. Although there are various ways to rock a stripe top, nothing screams retro better than a combo with bell bottoms. To be honest, I hated bell bottoms only because they made me look shorter than I already am. But I’ve always secretly loved the style and envisioned myself wearing it with a pair of classic black heels giving me the lift in height and confidence.

For all of you out there who are weary about wearing them, try pairing it with a trusty pair of heels and watch them work their magic. To further retro-lize the look, I added on a hat, which really does pull the look together.

Confidence is an important factor if you’re trying to experiment with different style. With confidence you can make something that you feel looks odd, look really stylish. I wouldn’t say that I experimented with this outfit, but for a girl who swore by skinny jeans, I would say that i stepped out of my comfort zone with this one, which i suggest everyone should.edited4edited3edited2edited1
