It's so cool when you put three separate pieces together and everyone tells you how much 'they love your jumpsuit'. It really is such a pleasure as a stylist when you can put together one new piece (the black flared trousers) with two existing pieces in your closet. That is why they say to imagine wearing everything three different ways before you commit to purchasing. These days, I really dislike 'one hit wonders' that you cannot pair with anything else and only serve you for one wedding, or one birthday. A lot of joy in styling comes from giving the same item a completely new identity multiple times.
'OMG I love your top',
'Really? I wore it to your birthday two years ago', '
No way! Is it the same one, that was a dress?',
'Yes it is, I just decided to pair it with trousers this time'.
When I took these black flared trousers to the drycleaners to get an inch chopped off at the hem (short girl problems), the lady at the till excitedly asked 'Gosh, are these back in style, I have a closet full of them and refused to get rid of them?'. I was so happy to confirm to her that they were indeed back in style. Sometimes, even if you have your own style and you don't follow trends, it becomes a little difficult to commit to looking outdated. It's such a good idea to put your most loved "out of fashion" pieces in storage for a while and wait for them to come back in style- they always do.
I used to ridicule my mum for wearing mules, and look what happened. If there is one thing I've learnt in fashion, it is to never say never.
