Most of us tend to style our wardrobe pieces in similar ways, every time we wear them. Not that there’s anything wrong with that – life is complicated enough without stressing about tops and trousers. But there’s no question we midlife (and more!) women also enjoy a shot of creativity in our outfits. This week’s women of Visible Monday provide inspiration to bring energy and fun to our clothes.
As always, the first tip is: combine and create as you will, and own your look. Confidence is all.
And there’s always room in my closet for creativity :
Layer it: Michelle of Retro Chic Mama welcomes Spring in a silky slip dress, but makes it fresh (and office-worthy) by layering a pale pink blouse under it. The unbuttoned cuffs are another great creative touch:
Add a hat: Jennie of A Pocketful Of Polka Dots is recalling Bonnie Parker for a “villainess” wardrobe challenge. But this is a fab any-day look too, made more memorable with a sleek beret. Just adding a hat/scarf brings a fresh and creative look to a familiar outfit.
Be bold with color: Sheila of of Ephemera uses creativity every day in her wardrobe; she’s an Advanced Creative. Here she’s mixing some bold colors – including her hair and glasses – and adding an unexpected shape: harem pants. It all comes together beautifully to express Sheila’s playful style:
Mix some patterns: Jen of of Librarian For Life Style is inspired by art to create a mixed pattern outfit. It’s fun and Spring-y and what’s more creative than pulling elements from art??
Step outside your comfort zone: Charlotte, a model at J’s Touch Of Style had to be persuaded to try this cool asymmetrical top with her classic trousers. It’s just a single piece, but expresses her vibrant personality so well. Creativity doesn’t have to be complicated!
How do you like to get creative with your clothes? xo
