Our friend Mariana, a very busy Biology student who doesn’t have much time for shopping, complained to us that she doesn’t know how to wear and put together some of her favorite clothes. Vera and I came to the rescue and jumped at the opportunity to style someone other than ourselves :)
It turns out that Mariana has great closet staples, from skirts to tops, shoes to accessories. We just helped her put together the outfits and had a blast doing it. While usually conservative in her fashion choices, Mariana was the perfect subject and model! She was totally open to our suggestions and got creative with us, putting her own say into the outfits.
Lessons learned from this styling experience:
– Opposites do attract: big with small, flowy with tight, even opposite prints and colors.
– While we all go for the trend, the most important value of the outfit is that your personality shines through it and that you don’t become just a hanger.
– Dress for your body, not everything is flattering on everyone.
– Most importantly, fashion is all about being open minded, letting loose and having fun!
