You looked taller on tinder...

You looked taller on tinder... 
Unfortunately, like tinder sometimes clothing doesn’t meet your expectations. You know the feeling, you try it on in the store and it makes you feel special, one of a kind. Acting on impulse you swipe! 

Then you get home and reality hits. You go to wear that new garment and you realise you have nothing to pair it with!

Well my fellow shoppers you have just committed one of my cardinal sin styling tips "don’t buy an item of clothing without thinking about how you are going to style it". Like other areas in our life it should be in multiples.

Generally speaking, when I shop I’m already formulating outfit ideas in my mind incorporating the new piece.  The more looks I create in my mind directly correlates to the probability of me purchasing the item.

Take this skirt for example it’s a great investment piece. The classic a-line cut is something that won’t date (also it’s a bargain price as it is a sample at Cue at Canberra outlet). Leather is also a durable fabric AND I can wear it a number of ways.

For example to wear this causally I’ve paired it back with a printed tee and some sport luxe white sneakers.

To take it to the evening I elevated the look with some sequins and clashing leopard print heels.

Moving forward thinking about my long term relationship with this garment I know I could always pair it back with a fitted sweater and some pointy heels or even a silk camisole and high heel sandals. Honestly I could spit out ten outfits without even trying.

So next time you go shopping I want you to think about the long term commitment you are getting into. Get creative and think about what you can come up with. 

If it doesn’t flow naturally the item isn’t for you sis, I’m sorry to say but walk away.. swipe left!
