OK, so I have been rocking this Rebel Girl shift for a while now, and it seems like every time I wear it, I do a little something different with the styling.
On the left is me pretending to be demure in my shift, some capri leggings, little black flats, a cardigan, and some pearls. I could totally pass for Jackie Kennedy here RIGHT??!?!
In the middle is my favorite look -- the shift paired with crazy blue tights, my favorite blue/green/black oxfords, and a black tunic over top. I like the tunic over the shift with insane tights because it gives the eye a little rest and draws your eyes like whoa to the leggal region. Blue legs, people!! The 21st century is amazing.
The look on the right is for going out and shaking a tail feather. (I am doing the "What Have You Done For Me Lately?" move here in case you can't tell.) Orange and gray heels with (pegged!) black jeans, a black satin blazer, bright red lipstick, and, of course, the shift.
You may have noticed that my shoes do not "match" my dress. However, they do somehow "go" -- but I would never have known that if I hadn't tried them on. Moral of the story: color mixing is mysterious and worth experimenting with. Hole yourself up in your bedroom some Tuesday night with a few glasses of wine and see what you can come up with.
So there you have it -- 3 different ways to style the same humble electric blue and lime green shift. Which one is your favorite? Leave a comment and let us know!
