I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
The Preppy Tennis Star with a Twist Look
I. Love. This. Dress. It is so comfortable for a wool dress, the tipped white in the dress is gorgeous and such a nice retro kind of vibe to the dress, with a double belt — magenta obi belt with a red second belt over top of it to create a new kind of belt. I like mixing red with magenta pink, and then grounding it with a dark navy blue.
I came up with the idea of mixing the belts because I wanted a third belt – something that had a nice bright background (pink), with a sort of belted detail (red belt). Red + Magenta are one of my favourite colour combinations to wear because although it’s bright, they’re in the same colour family in a sense, and if you match their saturated or pastel tones together, they look really lovely, like a very super bright sunset or a pale pinky orange sunrise.
I have to say the look is like preppy tennis star + a colourful twist. I could have changed out the heels for something like a strappy heel, but I like that it’s a closed pair of pumps that brings it right to work.
This white tipped thing on clothing, like blazers, or dresses is perfection for me. It just adds a nice detail to the whole look and makes it so stylish and classic. I obviously love tipped things, just check out this blazer:
Or this skirt with a black tipped edge:
J. Crew does “tipped” pieces really well. They just work great for this brand.
