I am constantly amazed by the way I see mannequins styled. Large brands usually send display directions to their stores so you will see the same outfit in every one of their stores’ windows but there are some that use their own creativity.
Which begs the question, who is styling these outfits?
I ran across this one yesterday and was curious what you would think. For me, styling is everything. You can take a grain sack and make it look chic by how you style it. You can also take incredibly expensive clothes and style them to look awful. Great style has no price tag, and you’re only limited by your creativity.
This outfit was giving off an Anne Of Green Gables vibe on top with the pin tucking, smocked cuffs, and ruffles buttoned to the neck. From the waist down, I was getting a Hee Haw vibe from the loose legs and hole in the knee. They were just unpacking their fall clothes so my options were limited to restyle this. Here’s what I tried.
I could have unbuttoned the top buttons and kept the same jeans but I am not curvy and these just didn’t fit me so I changed into these skinny jeans in a dark wash. I tried the blouse tied in front, then long over the skinny jeans. I pushed the sleeves up and bloused them over the elastic which downplayed the ruffled cuff.
What are your thoughts on what the mannequin is wearing?
How would you style this blouse and jeans?
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
