I paired the tee shirt with this obnoxiously girly skirt that I bought from H&M about a year or so ago. I fell in love with the color, silhouette, and detailing and snatched it up immediately. The femininity of the skirt balances out the casual look of the shirt, and the shirt helps to make the skirt more wearable. Brightly colored voluminous pieces can come off looking costumey, so it’s nice to balance it out with something less dressy. The same principal is used to take a look from the runway to the street.
Next is accessories. Say you want to do jeans and heels with a graphic tee in lieu of the skirt. Well you’ll need light accessories so that it doesn’t look like you’re taking a walk of shame after a long night of poor decision making. I didn’t do as much chunky jewelry here since the skirt is the real focal point, and there’s no need to overwhelm the eyes. Also, I don’t live my fashion life according to seasons with regard to how old or new something is. My mom bought me these Steve Madden sandals in 2014 as a part of my present for graduating from FIT. We all love to pop tags, but if there’s something I really like, I don’t get rid of it for a while, and I just love these shoes. The colors and exaggerated floral pattern are just so whimsical. I’ll probably never get rid of these.
