a sweatshirt, pencil skirt & gladiators
1) The proportions are spot on: The cropped, slouchy sweatshirt over the midi sleek pencil skirt keeps the proportions of this look flattering. The contrast between the two creates a silhouette that is slouchy & sleek at the same time-so everything is 'even'.
2) All the pieces used have the same 'vibe'. The print on the midi skirt actually makes the skirt more casual & perfect for pairing with a plain white sweatshirt. & the gladiator sandals, while heeled, have just a 1" square heel, also making them casual.
3) Each piece is a statement in and of itself: The cropped white slouchy sweatshirt is unique and would carry any outfit on it's own. The printed pencil skirt has the just the right cut, and length to make it that much more different from your typical. Knee high gladiator sandals -enough said. & of course this hot pink Kate Spade NY bag adds the perfect dose of color.
& that is why this sweatshirt, pencil skirt, and gladiators work! The most important of those 3 I would say is PROPORTION. Always REMEMBER: keeping your look proportional will make any outfit you put together more flattering! :)
