Outfit 46: Black and white sweater dress, black tights, and grey Frye boots. Sometimes my style shows up in my daughter's wardrobe: a striped top and jeans look good at any age!
Outfit 47/59 is another Fix the Outfit experiment. On the left, I tried wearing my striped tunic with a black and white batwing cardigan, wide-legged pinstriped pants and moccasins. I thought the loose top, loose sweater, and loose pants were unbalanced and just too much loose fabric for me. On the right, I switched out the tunic for a tighter-fitting jersey snake top and kept the rest of the outfit the same. I think it looks a lot better.
This was an experiment in mixing patterns: the sweater's knit pattern, the snake print on the shirt, and the pinstripe on the pants are all different. But they work together because they're all black, grey, and white. Also, only one of the patterns is strong (the snake print). The other two patterns are more subtle and look pretty neutral.
This weekend, I plan to finalize my next capsule wardrobe and I'll tell you all about it on Monday. I'm pretty excited about getting out my old favorites and adding a few new pieces for springtime.
