A Look for Her: Meeks

Here’s an excuse to post more pics from the photo shoot that had gone into hiding, but have been found!

I love Meeks’ look in this because of the textures and color scheme. The reason her outfit works is because the silver heels and gold sparkly shirt are both subtle but provide a fun aspect. The cardigan dresses the whole bit down just enough and gives it that final completeness that it needed; it also tones down the flashy. The red hat gives it that necessary pop of color that brings it to life. Her outfit has just the right amount of movement, balanced with the sleekness of the leggings and the heels. Her loose wavy hair takes it from splashy to cozy and comfortable. Ready for winter! Had she wanted to dress up her outfit, all she would need is a wool pea-coat with a fur collar, but very sleek.

Ladies, don’t be afraid to experiment! If the whole texturing thing seems daunting then try something that’s minimal in color, but has lots of texture. You can add the color aspect later when you’re comfortable with the texturing aspect. An idea for subtle texturing (if you don’t think you can pull off something as bold as Meeks’) is to pair black leggings, a dark colored/no print oversized sweater (roll up the sleeves a little, and tuck in a little piece in the front,) and a fun colored heel or flat. Alternatively, do a black boot then add a colored beanie or fun accessories.

If leggings aren’t your deal, then try for instance a black flowy short skirt with black tights, a colored shoe and a tight fitting black long sleeved shirt tucked in. Or do a black shoe and a fun top. That way your color scheme isn’t too crazy but you have lots of movement with the skirt. Add some spice to that by throwing on a black leather jacket.

Have fun!!
