Styled by…..tells the story behind someones style. What does a person tell by the way she or he is dressed? What does it say about their personality? When did they began to create their own style?
Every first Tuesday of the month you will find a post here with someone who tells about her or his style. Do you also have a story to tell, please contact me via email.
This month tells Andrea about her style!
Since I started blogging about style, I’ve been asked several times to describe my style and the phrase that always pops in my head is “casual but put-together.” I live and work in a very casual place, and I think my style is best described as “classic casual.” While my style is casual, I’m attempting to be put-together and always add a few fun elements to keep my outfits from being boring. Accessories are at the forefront of my style. Many of the clothes in my closet are many years old, but new accessories add new life to old basics. I started my scarf collection thirty years ago, and many of my scarves are 15+ years old. I also love statement necklaces. Sadly, I can’t wear most earrings, as I’m allergic to almost all metals, so I always wear the same pair I know I can tolerate. But I actually think a statement scarf or a statement necklace, an interesting purse and fun shoes are enough to create an interesting outfit around basic pieces. One of my signature looks is leggings and a tunic. I love how comfortable leggings are, and there are so many pretty and interesting tunics out there, which allow me to express myself. I also enjoy wearing dresses with leggings. By adding a few statement pieces to my basic wardrobe, such as a long floral dress, embroidered jeans and faux leather leggings, I keep my wardrobe from being too basic and boring. At least that’s what I hope! Looking back twenty years or so, I don’t think my style has changed all that much. It’ll be interesting to see how my style will evolve as I’m getting older and better!
Thanks for letting me share some thoughts about my style, Nancy!
