This blogpost is pending for over a year now. I had thought about the concept of it but couldn’t really execute it that well, so I didn’t want to bring it here. Then I asked myself, Should I let it just sit in my gallery just because it isn’t perfect? Well, life isn’t perfect yk. So I gathered courage and here I am presenting to you a mix of some of my favorite looks with others that could have been done better. But yeah, browse through! And I hope you’re safe at home and enjoying the bliss of home during this quarantine period. 🙂So the concept behind this post is looks that have a same piece of clothing which is very much in trend. Where I will show you how it is worn on the ramp vs how I would wear it in real life. Trying to create stark contradictions between both looks, doesn’t necessarily mean that runway looks are not wearable.
Stripes are such a classic thing to wear. It has been around and is never leaving the fashion industry. There are so many great ways of styling it and it has the power of elevating or just ruining outfit very very easily. The stripes I am playing with here is big bold white and black stripes. These kind are not your general stripes but look extremely fashionable when paired well.
For the runway look, I just made it more chic than usual. I have seen so many runway looks where they just leave the fear behind and do a print on print look. Runway is all about playing with clothing and creating that completely eye catching look. So for the runway look, I went with a black&white striped shirt with black&white pants. While it seems so intimidating and crazy, I think this look is very powerful. I wanted to maintain a continuum so I made sure that the stripes were in the same direction, vertical stripes. The key to stand out yet keep it together was the direction and colors that went together making it almost look like a set. I also paired it with this tiny dark glasses to add the bold and boss lady look. Tell me what you fell about it down below? My friends said I look like a chor 😂
Now if I were to wear stripes. I would definitely opt for only one element of it and preferably pants because they elongate your legs. So that’s what I went with. I wore the black&white pants with a black t shirt. Now because the color palette is in the grey area, I didn’t want to add any other colors. So get the most simple look, I added the t shirt in black and chose short sleeves to balance the long pants. Also added silver hoop earrings to accessorize the outfit. So this is something that you could easily wear when you’re heading to a brunch or just casual shopping. I think this outfit is very simple and still has the power vibe to it.
