Look Of The Day: Keeping it Simple

Sometimes less is really more, some outfits just don’t need much to look good.

I feel like I tend to forget this a lot, so whenever I keep it simple it feels as if I’m experimenting.

If I look back at the beginning of my ‘fashion years’ I see a lot of growth.

A blogger once said that as time goes by, a fashionista wears less colour and less bold items.

She said that you start to appreciate black, or other darker colours a lot more, and you tend to keep it simple more often. Unfortunately I can’t seem to remember who said this, but I do know that, at the time, I used to think it was the most ridiculous thing ever! ‘Me? Wearing black, and keeping it simple?’ were my exact thoughts. But now, I feel like I slowly started to change, and this quote does apply to me nowadays. Of course I do love my bold colours every now and then, and I will never loose my love for statement items, but I’ve also grown to love wearing black more often. I think that when we are younger, we feel like we have to stand out as much as possible to make your statement. At least, that was the case for me. I wanted people to know that I loved fashion, and I used to love it when people gave me compliments about my outfit. However, I’ve realised that even now, when I don’t dress up as much as I used to, I still get a lot of compliments and people can still tell that I’m in to fashion. Maybe being a fashionista really comes from within, and just ‘radiates’ off of you on a day-to-day basis? Whatever it is, I know that I like where I’m going with my personal style. I love to experiment to see what I do, and do not like nowadays. My style has really developed towards a much more mature style and I can’t wait to see what it will be like in a few years!

Lots Of Love,
