Goldie’s 360Fashion Style Diary: Day 5. Check out Day 4 of Goldie’s 360Fashion Style Diary here.
Today is Friday and we have already tagged it “dress down” day so I decided to go a little easy on the outfit, vintage style. The focal point of this outfit is the multi-couloured patterned shirt, as you can see its the absolute first thing you notice before anything else, and thats exactly what I wanted! 😀
I know bright colours are usally tagged with the 70s, 80s or 90s style; not sure which one but around that time bright colours were worn freely but these days the “preppy” fashion sense the industry is now fast adopting has misplaced almost all our sense of spontaneity. Well, not me sha, lool, I love to experiment with colours.
So, I’ve paired my multi-coloured shirt with every other item on me as black; we don’t want to look like we’re at the circus now do we? The look is kind of vintage but I added a bit of modern urban fashion with the high tops, although it’s a little hard to notice in the pictures especially since they are black (remember we want the shirt to be the focal point).
The accessories needed to be added for extra coordination of the outfit, they are some of the very little details in outfits that make a lot of difference and I don’t think I’ve gone a day without some accessories – LOL.
The key to pulling the multi-coloured shirt off is to make sure there is nothing on the outfit competing for equal attention. It should be the focal point and note that you don’t have to pair it with black, there are other neutral colours like brown, grey or you could just pick the less dominant colour or darkest shade of colour on the shirt to complement the outfit.
Oh and yes the bag lol, I just had to remind you that a man purse/bag always completes the outfit, you can even see it lurking in the background of this picture.
