Time for what I call a wardrobe wild card post. I chose one piece of clothing – a multicolor scarf– and accessorized around it to show you how I put the look together.
There’s a lot of validity to the minimalist wardrobe, but sometimes I want to go crazy and jazz up my outfit with something pretty like this multicolor scarf!!
So, this is my first outfit post, which I think is pretty exciting. (See the thumbs up? Yeah, definitely exciting!) I’ve been reading so many posts lately about a having a minimalist wardrobe and what your “wardrobe essentials” should be.
Don’t get me wrong, I love those posts (and you’ll probably see me doing some of them later) – but sometimes I don’t want to focus on essentials…I want to focus on something fun, like a wildcard! Hence, this Wardrobe Wildcardpost.
Turning a multicolor scarf into a wardrobe wildcard
So my wildcard for today’s post is a Multicolor Scarf that I got from Anthropologie a few years ago.
The reason that I like this multi-color scarf so much is that once you’ve settled on this one piece of your outfit, the rest is super simple to put together. I like to stick to solid colors for the rest of the outfit so that it doesn’t clash too much. A trusty black bandage skirt is always a go-to piece for me when using this much color.
Then I can be a little more bright with the other pieces, like my teal shirt! I chose the teal shirt because that color is also in the scarf, but as you can see, if I didn’t have teal, I would have a lot of other options too. That’s why a multi-color scarf is so great!
For my other accessories, I tend to go pretty light, because I don’t want to look like there’s too much going on in my outfit. I threw on some purple booties to match the scarf and dress it up a little. I normally do sandals, but I thought a small heel might be nice too.
Then I threw on some dangle earrings and a huge smile – and I was done! The earrings I’m wearing are made out of shells that are two different colors – one is teal and the other is more of a cream color, but since both of those colors are in the scarf the two pieces go nicely together.
I love this look and plan to wear it the next time I have a coffee date with my girl pals.
There you have it! My first outfit post – a wardrobe wildcard! Hope you enjoyed reading it, and are starting to think about ways to dress up some of your own wardrobe wildcards.
Happy styling, fashionistas!
