Over-sized shirts are great for comfort because they don't rest close to the skin. Pair your shirt with a cute pair of skinny jeans to create a soft and comfortable yet feminine look! And if you're in a heel mood, throw on a pair of stilettos to give yourself a sleeker silhouette!
Not only can belts be used for their original purpose (to hold up your pants) but they can also be worn around an over-sized top, or even a cardigan. Accessorize with a skinny belt to add a little extra character to your ensemble!
Often we hear so much about how we are not to 'worry' about what we are to wear. This is Biblical truth, however it must be put into perspective.
Our appearance and actions are important and should always reflect who we are in Christ. At all times, Christian women as well as men should strive to look their best. However, before we can begin to represent Christ through our outer appearance, it is important to understand the process that must occur, first, within ourselves!
As Christians, we are to be examples to those around us, living the pages of the Bible for those who never read them. If our lifestyles are not a reflection of Christ, no matter what we put on our bodies, we still do not represent Him. But when our minds are transformed (Romans 12:1-2) and we have spiritually separated ourselves from the world, then we are fit to illustrate our salvation through our appearance.
There's nothing worse than having a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear! As stylists, from time to time, this happens! So when it does what do we do? We look for inspiration and we get creative!!
Take this outfit for example:
Its so basic! 1) Black Pencil Skirt 2) Candy Apple Red Blouse 3) Gray cover-up and 4) Wide Brown Belt
On this day I looked in my closet and saw.... NOTHING. I began pulling out random pieces and matching colors that normally wouldn't go together *gray and brown* and VOILA... a cute outfit to wear out to the mall.
So simple... all black with a leopard printed skinny belt, orange tights and tan pumps. All accented with gold accessories. Oh and a pair of over-sized glasses to spice things up! (The orange tights may not be your flavor but throw in something that fits your taste)
Going to visit friends after church: I found a super cute sleeveless dress. To the dress I added once again my wide brown belt, and a navy blue cardigan. On my legs I have a pair of tan fishnets and I'm wearing a pair of Steve Madden flats on my feet. Accessorize with pearl earrings or gold jewelry *or both if you want... like I did :)*
