Happy new month coupled with the whole independence thing too, I had imagined this post would have been up about 3/5 days-ish ago but then life happened as always… enough about me already, how has it been going with you? This being my first style post, I might be a bit clumsy (forgive me, please 🙈).
Lots of girls have the ‘I don’t know what to wear problem’ meanwhile, your closet/wardrobe are filled with amazing pieces that we think for some weird reasons are ‘ugly’ or ‘plain’ (till we see something similar on someone else looking fresh outta slay town and we just want to drag her!!!😂😂) or you just keep buying the wrong things for your pocket size. Dear girl, you should know what to buy… what you NEED to buy.
If you are a strict budget like myself…or not, you need to know some powerful pieces you should be buying. When shopping or thrifting, try to identify pieces that I like to call FOCAL PIECES, they are pieces that do not have a particular or strict personality (I hope you get what I mean 😏) this lack of personality allows for easy manipulations here and there for tuning to various styles to suit various purposes. Focal pieces can sometimes come off plain or ugly, like a pair of plain denim, no details, no embroidery, just a good ol’denim (get that ‘ugly’ denim girl!!!) or a plain black dress.
Another way to identify a focal piece is to envision yourself wearing it to more than one type of occasion, you want to be able to wear it to class, to the mall, chilling with your girls, to work and so on (with a bit of altering)…one piece, many SLAYS 😉😉
Cutting this my long story short, I will be giving you ideas on how to style your perceived various ‘ugly’ yet focal pieces you have been sleeping on… starting with a simple pair of denim jeans.
I hope this was helpful, I hope that you can identify some focal pieces in your collection and tune them to fit your various styles… they are your clothes, own them girl!
Focal pieces are plain canvases, be a meticulous artist, just keep painting! 😁
Thank you for visiting my blog, please do leave a comment on some of your focal pieces.
