This is such a cliche, but time really flies when you are having fun. This year has been especially busy with a new role at work to start off the year and a new baby to end it. Through it all, personal style was my drishti in times of stress. While taking a look back at my outfits from this year, I picked out a few of my favorites. I predict these style elements make a repeat appearance in 2015.
Pop of Yellow. I normally don’t wear a lot of yellow but I was drawn to the rich gold tone and satin texture of this Zara shoe.
Statement Dress. This dress has pattern and is “furry”, two things I never thought I would wear together. Somehow Thakoon makes the combination look ultra sophisticated so I had to splurge a little and invest in this pretty number. It’s super warm too, perfect for winter.
Sequins. Sequins make me happy. I try to incorporate it into everyday where when I can. We should sparkle everyday and not just on special occasions.
Open Back. Tibi is one of my favorite designers and I have fallen in love with this dress back in 2012 (but in a different color combination). I loved the length and the open back, making it the ultimate feminine dress. When it came back this season in black and white, I knew it had to be mine.
Leather. Leather is my all-time favorite fabric, embellishment, you name it. I can’t have enough leather (faux or real) in my closet. I especially loved this look because it resurrected a Forever 21 dress I had never worn and it was stretchy enough to fit over my six-month baby bump.
Jersey Dresses. I became fond of anything made of jersey as I headed into my third trimester. This Tarte infinity dress became a staple since it had the stretch to grow along with me and still be totally wearable post-pregnancy. I also added brands like Monrow and Joie into my closet since they also make great jersey dresses.
Lace. The ying to leather’s yang, I became obsessed with lace this past year. I paired with masculine things to create an edgier look. There is just something about lace that looks expensive regardless of the price tag.
Navy. It once was a color I shied away from but now I embrace it. For me, navy is the new black and will become a neutral along with said black, grays, and whites.
Hope you all have a wonderful New Year! Here’s to another year of fun and style! xo
