Inspiration: A Metallic Story

Fashion SMALLZ

What is your daily style inspiration? For me when I go to my closet, I usually have at least one piece in my mind. I might be in a leather mood, or I’m really drawn to the color green. Other times, I’ll want to challenge myself on the concept. I’ll pull out a graphic I’ve worn a hundred times with jeans and leather boots and think, Can I make more of a romantic statement? What if I paired the same shirt with a tulle skirt and ballerina flats? The gift of individual style is that it’s usually based on an expression of your mood, and I don’t know about you, but I’m in a completely different mood every day!

So when tallz and I talked of doing a metallic look, I immediately thought, How would Carrie Bradshaw wear metallics? What would be her main feature in the outfit? The shoes, of course!! I got to kill two birds with one stone: rose gold and metallic! How would she accessorize it? Large statement necklace, check! And I knew she would never be afraid of layering a turtleneck on top of a dress. Never. And this way, I could also draw attention to my favorite part of the dress: the ruffles. All and all, I must say I was pretty happy with the end result. #inspiredbyCarrie

Sometimes when trying a new trend, it’s difficult to translate the trend to your personal style. We all have our ways that we’re used to wearing things. But that does not have to limit you from experimenting. Try a piece in your favorite color, or reference a style icon you trust. There is always an element you haven’t thought of, and an experiment can turn into your new ‘look’!
