Where do you get your outfit inspiration from? For me, a little inspiration can go a long way. For instance, the idea for this outfit came from seeing a young school girl waiting patiently at the bus stop on a chilly morning. She was wearing her green and blue plaid uniform, with a grey cardigan, clumpy black leather shoes and was cold so had her denim jacket on over the top. If only she knew how cool she looked in my eyes.
Obviously the denim was not a part of her uniform, but this instantanious drive by and the vision of blue plaid, grey knitwear and denim was just perfect – and that the next day I was going to wear that very exact combination.
Now, what do I have in blue plaid, grey knitwear and denim? The focus is narrowed down when reviewing my wardrobe and a selection of blue, grey, navy and leather pops onto my styling rack. From here the outfit forms easily and effectively, with the use of layers to cover all three of my outfit requirements. Next time you see a little combo of textures, colours or styles you like, make a mental note of them to use for ideas for your next get up.
