Style Update: My Ostrich Moment

posted on: Friday, 23 November 2018

I am a firm believer in never ever saving sparkle. If you have something that's beautiful and makes you smile, you should wear it as often as possible, to wherever you choose. So, with that in mind, let's talk about this top. In fact, let's talk about it in relation to this entire ensemble.

A top that is made up of feathers and sequins is, undoubtedly, made for evening wear. It's a loud and proud fashion statement that would look amazing with a great pair of skinny black pants and heels or a long, tight evening skirt. Only, when I received this top in the post, I didn't have any immediate plans for Christmas parties and I wanted to wear it now. With special occasion items, such as this one, the key is to dress them down. Make them the focus of the outfit, but throw in a ripped jean or a camo jacket to bring it down to daytime.  

Whatever you do, don't leave the pieces you love sitting in your closet, waiting for the right moment to wear them. Find a way to tie them into the everyday. You paid hard earned money for them.... they should, under no circumstances, be collecting dust!
