One Piece Three Ways Part 2

I'm continuing yesterday's post on how to style three outfits using one central piece of clothing. This time I'm in front of the camera and Alejandra took the pictures. I've chosen to focus on stripes. Stripes are continuing to be huge in fashion, and you no longer have to fear them.

I decided to style three different outfits based on different types of personal style such as preppy, artsy and feminine. I did this because I know a lot of outfit posts that you see on fashion blogs showcase great style, but you may not personally relate to it. I wanted to create something for everyone with this exercise.

1. The Bold Artist - Combining bright colored pants and mismatched patterns is definitely bold, but it's also so fun. I'm the person that likes to dress for their mood, and sometimes I get the urge to put unusual things together to express my spunky attitude.

The great thing about black and white striped shirts is that they truly go with everything.


Now, I would classify my everyday style as preppy, so this look comes straight from my usual line up of outfits.

I love my jeggings, I love wearing blazers and I often wear neck scarves. To me, this is an easy, classic outfit that I know I can rely on for style and comfort.

Last, but not least, is a very feminine east coast outfit. Tweed is one of my favorite things about fall and winter. So, I put my long-sleeved shirt underneath my tweed jumper, added some colored tights, and topped it off with some classic round-toe pumps. So feminine, flirty and happy.

Don't forget that your shirts can often go underneath things and not just over them.

I hope you enjoyed this mini series and are inspired to create outfits from your closet. A little creativity could spare you a shopping trip and money!
