DASHIKI-ISH VERSATILY

Hi loves!
The day after MLK day! Hmmm…well, let’s just say I woke up in a dashiki-ish mood this morning!

Generally speaking, when I see people rock their dashiki garments, it’s always in casual outfits. But, in actuality, dashiki pieces can also be dressed up. Here is my take on a more put-together dashiki outfit, and I hope it will get you inspired!

I paired it with a pair of black leggings, topped with a black military-style fitted  blazer. To kinda keep it on the minimalist side, I went for black on black accessories, with these gorgeous peep-toe zipped front booties and and black and gold purse.

It is as simple as it looks really. Obviously, the highlight of this look is my dashiki shirt in pink tones. You can take any direction with it. If you want it a little more formal, throw in some suit pants and a pair of black suede pointy heels instead, and voila!! I might actually try it myself pretty soon, and let you see the final result. Meanwhile, let me rock this one look for the day!

Neutral Color-blocking

Hey loves! Is it Christmas yet? Ho-ho-ho… Merry Christmas 🎄🎄🎄

To wish you all a wonderful Christmas, I decided to share with you my look of the day: a tasteful nude overlay, with a camel and black color-blocked waterfall jacket.

I was looking for a way to style my newly acquired faux leather midi skirt for a family outing in the city. After careful consideration (lol, I sound like I’m writing a super formal report omg! ), I decided to go for something monochromatic. So I paired the skirt with a nude turtleneck…

And then tried out a long-line coat. But I hated the complete look with that beige trench coat. So, instead I threw in my favorite piece of the whole look: My oh so awesome statement jacket.

To carry along with the the color-block theme, I decided to complete the look with black sheer tights, my go-to Black and gold booties for a nice glam-touch and a matching black and gold purse.

There is something bold and assertive about thick black stripes, that just elevated the whole outfit! So to spice it all up, I added a cool dome hat. Put on my Versace sunnies…and off we went!

For some, minimalist fashion is a bit too cold, as it tends to lack rich tones! But quite frankly, this neutral look definitely brought a lot of warmth to my day, and I looooooved it! I hope you did too.

Don’t forget to leave your feedback. Like, share, comment, whatever it is, lets keep the fun rolling!
Have a blissful Christmas celebration, and happy holidays! 🎄🎄🎄💫
