Mood Piece

Where has the time gone? We are knee-deep in the holiday season. My favorite time of year, although it doesn’t feel like it. Despite warmer weather, I got cozy in some of my textured winter blues.

Loving this look? Here’s how to create a similar outfit:

Pick a Mood Piece

Start by asking yourself how you want to feel. For my Sunday Funday girls’ date, I wanted to be casual so I started with this super comfy sweater. It’s so soft and feels like I’m wrapped in a blanket. Your mood piece should create the feeling for your look…..comfy, bold, trendy, casual, professional….however you’re feeling.

Bring on the Textures

Textures add a pop of visual interest to your outfit. Although I’m wearing a monotone look, pairing denim, velvet and fluffiness (I don’t know how else to describe the sweater) takes this causal look up a notch. Don’t forget the snakeskin pumps!

Contrast

For this look, I chose a lippie opposite of the light color of my mood piece. If your mood piece is bold, printed or sequined, try pairing it with a nude lip color. If I’m wearing all white, I’ll wear a bright red lipstick.

To create this look, pick a mood piece, throw in a couple of textures and chose a lip color that contrasts the colors in your outfit.
