This week’s Blonde vs. Brunette Challenge takes 1 staple item in each of our closets, and showcases 3 different looks for that item. I heard this piece of fashion advice awhile ago and it has stuck with me since: If you’re on the fence about buying clothes or shoes, think about 3 different ways you can style that item. If you can’t do it, the item probably isn’t worth the purchase. I think about that every time I go shopping; it’s a great piece of fashion advice!
Kristin – THE BLONDE
Item: Black Harem Pants
Look #1 – Work Ready
Cardigans are staples in my wardrobe because I never know how cold or warm my office is going to be. I also love comfy pants because they are something easy to throw on when I am in my morning comatose state. If I go simple with my clothes, I like to wear an unexpected shoes.
Look #2 – Comfy Chic
This is why I love harem pants!! I think they look fabulous when you dress them up. They have a androgynous yet sexy feel to them. I would wear this on a date night or out with the girls. Come back next week to see how to make the metallic post featured in this picture!
Look #3 – Preppy
This would be something casual to wear in the spring or early fall; maybe a day date in DC. I love layers because I could easily take off the light weight sweater if I get too hot. This goes to show that just changing the shoes you wear with harem pants can completely transform their feel.
Alex – THE BRUNETTE
Item: Cargo jacket
Look #1 – Spunky n Sporty
This is a look I’d wear if I had errands to run on the weekend. Pair your cargo jacket with a cute tank, jean shorts and some cute sneakers. I opted for my Nike wedge sneakers that I’m slightly obsessed with. It’s comfortable and casual without being frumpy and boring.
Look #2 – Pretty in Pink and Cargo
I would have no problem rocking this look on a Saturday night out at a bar or on a casual movie date. I love the unexpected combination of light pink skinnies with the cargo jacket and grey oversized tee. The leopard peep-toe wedges add a dash of sexiness to the outfit without being over the top.
Look #3 – Girly with an Edge
This would be a fun outfit to wear to a birthday brunch, lunch, or a date night during summer time. The heels and crochet summer dress is dressed down into a more casual look with the cargo jacket. I am really into pairing something edgy like a cargo jacket with feminine pieces like the dress.
