My "go to" silhouette is a skinny leg and a more voluminous or drapey topper but every now and again it's fun to play with different silhouettes.
|lantern dress : wishstone|
draped merino vest : blue illusion
leather back pack : serra
microsuede ankle boots : rivers
I would normally keep volume away from my lower half, but I find this silhouette quite flattering. Proportions play an important role in making this work, with the leggings being the 'third piece' that finishes the outfit. Without the leggings the outfit didn't look half as interesting... in my humble opinion :)
The back pack is a new wardrobe addition and was based more on practicality than style. There are often times when being able to go "hands free" would be extremely useful and now that there is a wide selection of upscale backpacks, it seemed like a good time to try one out. I will let you know if it turns out to be the workhorse I expect it to be.
How often do you mix it up with your outfit silhouettes? Or are you like me and generally stick to something tried and true?
Thanks for visiting.
