Fall/Winter Outfit Styling – Giles

This outfit is styled for my older sister who is currently a grad school student/teacher pursuing her masters in vocal performance. She’s pretty fancy stuff, in case you were wondering. 🙂

She is looking for outfits that will work well for class as well as extracurricular activities. I wanted to pair rich, vibrant colors with some unique neutrals to create a palette that would suit her light skin tone and dark curly hair.

The scarf from World Market is an inspiration piece for the entire set. I love the scroll pattern in the corduroy skirt, but included some plainer alternatives as well (see ‘Similar’ links). All the other elements play well together for interchangeable dressing up or down. These 12 items can be re-mixed to create over 15 unique outfits.

Sleeveless Top
Crepe Pocket Tank (Silver Sash Brown) –  Old Navy, $19.99

Braided Leather Belt (Black) – Old Navy, $7.97
Creates a more finished look, especially when the shirt is tucked in. Or use it to belt a loose top underneath the cardigan.

Teal Multi-Strand Seed Bead Necklace – World Market, $19.99

Staple Pieces to Mix In:

  • A great pair of trouser jeans in a dark wash (like these) for a more casual look, but the darker wash still looks pulled together
  • Classic v-neck tees (white, black, gray) – Throw the blazer or cardigan on top and add the necklace or scarf for a complete look

*Pieces to add to your wardrobe first
