Hey Loves! Happy Hump Day! Hope you all are having a great week!
My birthday is coming up at the end of the month, and I usually pamper myself in some way, but this year is going to be me doing a little bit of NOTHING. First off, I don’t have the financial means to do my usual, like take a trip, get my nails and hair done, and do me. My primary focus right now is trying to find a job and get my career on track, which has been a struggle. I am taking it day by day! My birthday usually falls close to Fashion Week, which is in September, so I am looking forward to seeing what the fashion runway scene will be for 2019! The best birthday gift I can get is an opportunity to attend Fashion Week, maybe one day!
One of my favorite trends for fall is animal print and sequins. In my last post, I served you some my animal print athleisure leggings by Peach Apparel, and today I am rocking my animal print wide leg trousers. As you can see, I am a big fan of animal print because it is considered a neutral. You can pair the animal print with a variety of other patterns, or with a bold solid color. I also like to play with animal print by throwing in some sequins to put a little disco Flava in the look.
Sequins is another haute trend that has been ongoing since last fall. It can make a simple look come to life. I paired this silver sequin crop top with snake print trousers, white kitten heel mules, and a statement earring to take this street glam look to another level. I enjoy playing with sequins in a way that doesn’t make it look like I am attending an NYE party or going out to a club. Be creative when it comes to sequins because it is not just nightlife attire, it can be worn to work or on a casual shopping day. You want to make sure that when you wear it to work, you do it in a subtle, but sophisticated way. For instance, I would throw on a black blazer with a pair of black flare, high-waisted trousers, and black pumps. I like being the one that stands out among my peers, whether it is with my brilliance or my style! Wearing sequins to work will make you stand out among the rest.
I added the white mules to break up the look and add sophistication to this street glam style. White has been a hot color for the past few seasons, still is, and it goes with everything. Labor day is coming soon and throw that “you can’t wear white after Labor Day” BS out the window. Girls and Guys wear your white and be angelic with it!
What are your thoughts on pairing sequins and animal print together?
