I have this ongoing obsession in finding ways to wear formal clothing in casual ways. When I came across this Marina Rinaldi Mesh Jacket, I wasn’t seeing red carpet finery, I was zeroing in on a daywear moment right from the start. Call me crazy but it’s what I love about style – the ability to completely change the purpose of an item by pairing it correctly. And this jacket was screaming for some casual attention. Oh, who am I kidding? I just wanted an excuse to wear it as much as possible because I am positively obsessed with it. Who wouldn’t be?
It has been a constant pet peeve of mine, this idea that certain items are meant for certain moments. I’m forever stepping out in formal shoes with shredded boyfriend jeans or massive chunky blinging jewellery with rock t-shirts. My whole concept is if you love it, you find a way to wear it as often as possible. And really, when it comes down to it, all you need is a little imagination. So here’s your challenge. Take the thing you love the most, but wear the least, and find a way to work it into your wardrobe tomorrow.
