This is the first of many H.M.W.C.I.B.W. segments. If you're looking for the no-heat beach waves, scroll to the bottom of this post and click "previous" .
In this segment, I chose several pieces of clothing --simple ones-- that others might have in their closet. Those articles of clothing include:
1 grey dress
1 black skirt
1 pair of black (oxford) heels
1 pair of sunglasses
1 black cardigan
Now, you don't have to use all of the pieces together each time, but I made six unique outfits with these.
This first outfit is simple: I wore the dress itself, a pair of sunglasses, and the black heels. Yes, that's how the dress looks. That 'shirt' is connected around the waist, so in other outfits you'll notice how I'm able to push it down and make the top part of this dress, which lies underneath the shirt, look like a tank top.
Let's look at the next one.
This outfit is simple as well (all of them basically are; I'm using five articles of clothing...). I tucked that connected shirt under the skirt and wore a cardigan over the 'new tank top'. I wear all of this over my oxford heels.
Don't mind my weird face (I look like a baby bird). I was focusing on standing still. That sounds really sad, but I didn't want my hair to get extra messed up. Anyways, for this outfit, I put the shirt part back over my shoulders (although it's made to sort of hang off of them) and put the skirt over the bottom half. Again, I'm still wearing my shoes. Spoiler alert: they'll be in each shot.
We're half way done!
Here's a simple solution to any dress with sleeves or straps: tuck one underneath the dress to make it see like there's only one sleeve. This dress happens to be perfect for that. Make this look extra summer-y with your pair of sunnies and a cute summer hair style.
"Knock knock!" "Who's there?" "Interrupting photo!" "Interrupting photo wh---"
Girrrrlllll....check that out. On a somewhat chilly morning, this cardigan will not only keep you cool, but give you that perfect spring time look. I flipped the shirt part of the dress upside down to give this dress a revived and flared-out look. Lovely.
This look has to be one of my favorites. It's a very classic, black outfit. The dress wasn't even in this one. Just a cardigan that's wrapped together and secured into place with the elastic of the skirt. I topped my look off with a plum lip color for a fall or winter vibe.
Well, I hope that this post helped anyone who is reading this who have limited choices clothing-wise. Have courage to mix and match outfits! You'll be surprised at the amazing results you'll find. Please comment below if you have articles of clothing you challenge me to try or maybe if you want inspiration and you don't own items that are similar to these. I'd love feedback.
