I thought I'd take a little break from FashionHap Catch-ups (huff huff puff puff) and do some Inspiration Board before we gte too far into summer for them to be workable. Besides, I miss writing them :) So...here ya go!
I do a lot of living in pants. But, sometimes, it's just fun to change things up and wear a skirt now and again - you know, to keep your fans guessing ;)...or just to amuse yourself, push your boundaries or stave off boredom. It's hard to find a simpler or cuter rendition of a skirt than this one that Cathy wore to the Wrestlemania Golf Tournament. Firstly, pleats have made a serious comeback lately, so the trend box gets checked off. (No pleats? Don't freak. Keep calm and reach for ruffles instead - like pleats, they add volume and movement on the bottom. Or skip all the folding and frills and just go with a classic A-line silhouette.) Next important detail: the color combo! Black with light beige is an iconic combo (so feel free to use it liberally :)). This warmer caramel hue adds a rich, earthy new twist to that pairing. Chocolate, bittersweet and tan will all give you a similar vibe. Thirdly: note the texture mix. Cathy pairs the softness of a knit tee with smooth leather, which creates in interesting visual contrast. Suede will do something similar, albeit with a more luxe feel. Twill will work as well, giving a polished, classic vibe. Lastly, your shoe choice will say a lot with this simple outfit. Cute and sporty? Do sneakers. Chic and casual? Go with block-heeled mules or flat slides (no flip-flops puuuhleaase ;)). Quirky starlet? Reach for an ankle booty. There are lots of functional options to make this one your own, lovelies. So, pick your passion and do you...Cathyily...Cathyesquely....Cathy-like-ly....whatever. You, with inspiration from Cathy. :) Happy styling!
