It’s Eclectic!

Oh ya know, just hanging out in the park.

Today’s wardrobe post comes from my own closet. With the weather teetering back and forth, I decided to get a little inventive with some key pieces last week, while being sure to not skimp on style. Lucky for me, my fantastic co-worker and accessories designer extraordinaire Mary, has taken up photography and needed some shots for her class. Thus I can present a gorgeous grouping of photos… so obviously, a huge Thank You to Mary 😉

In true Tiffany fashion, there is a lot going on with this look. For my daring fashionista’s this is a quasi-calculated style that one can create but the key is confidence. Eclectic dressing emerges from combining styles and breaking away from the traditional. Below you’ll see I meshed prim and polished silhouettes like, my silk button down top and my circle skirt with trendy pieces like my leopard swing coat and lots of jewelry. A pointer to help you pull this off, repetition {with mixing prints} a color or tone that is felt throughout gives a sense of consistency. In my own experience I also like at least one piece to be tailored. Since I am on the curvier side I can’t just bust out in billowy pieces unless I want to people to start speculating I am pregnant, so something, like  my tailored top secured with my high waisted belt helps me pronounce my shape amongst busy pattern and colors. So enough chit-chat, take a peek at my eclectic style…

Laughing in the face of danger as I almost got side swiped by a cab. Muhuhahaa.

The wind giving my skirt a little poof… love.

Isn’t it M A R V E L O U S.

Realizing my watch never joined Daylight Savings time…

Go big or go home. Mix those prints and then pile on the jewels.

If you have some exciting pieces lurking in that closet, don’t be afraid to be a little dramatic {in my case I felt the hair and sunglasses brought the sophisticated drama} . One last pointer, if you remove the color, prints and embellishments from my look, the style/shapes overall are timeless, if you are unsure about the outfit you’re putting together use that as a guideline. Now that you’re equipped with tips,  go ahead and mix it up, break it out and give your personal style a wow-factor.
