Structure Undone

April 24, 2016

multi slit skirt

“Structure Undone” is a phrase I like to refer to when I feel like wearing a “structured” or “classic” look but always find myself wanting to give it a little edge. No better way to do that than putting several slits in a pencil skirt right? I wish I could take the credit for the multiple slits in this navy pencil skirt, but I left that up to the Trouvé designers as I’m just not that gifted on the sewing machine! There’s so much beautiful movement in this skirt. Makes you want to twirl around in the wind for everyone to admire ;-). The multiple slit style gives this skirt a sexy edge while remaining classic with a belted waist and mid-length.

Consider pairing a mid-length (midi) skirt with a lace-up blouse. It doesn’t matter if its long sleeved, short sleeved, or sleeveless. The “lace-up” style movement is here to stay for a while and I’m loving every second of it! I chose to do a lace-up tank top for this look as I’m completely obsessed with the long trench vests these days. Keep in mind, I am only 5’4″ in height so I have to moderate my looks so it doesn’t look like I’m dressed in clothes that belong to a football player. If I wear too many layers of long clothing, it completely overwhelms my entire frame. This is always something to consider when getting dressed. Don’t let your outfit overtake you! Show some skin, even if its just a little, and don’t be afraid to show the curves of your body. The box shape is flattering on no one!

Ok, back to this trench vest, I’m completely in love with this look. It’s chic, edgy, cool, trendy, and classic all at once! You can dress it up or down, for day or night. Tie it in the back like I have here to give this look more of a “vest” vibe.  Or tie in the front to give it that sleeveless trench look. Either way, add a trench vest to jeans, shorts, sundresses or culottes this spring. I promise you’ll stand out in the crowd 😉
