Don’t you just love a good pair of palazzo pants? Palazzos are some of my favourite things to style because they instantly dress up any outfit and help to create a beautiful silhouette with their cut and flow of fabric. I got these from the Hana Tajima x Uniqlo collection about half a year back. To create a contrast against the charcoal grey colour, I threw on a gold-ish satin button-down and paired the look with a teal shawl in a similar texture. I have to admit, I’m not a big fan of this scarf because 1) its rectangular (I like square shawls) and 2) the fabric is SO DIFFICULT to work with (I like stiffer fabrics). But the colour and finish of the shawl is so unique that I just had to get it for my still-growing headscarf collection.
A natural option to complete the look was a black and gold bag, which would match my black and gold pointed flats wonderfully, but I wanted a to create a fun outfit that could bring you from day to night, instead of an evening-type look. Instead, I reached for a bright orange tote from Kate Spade that created a delightful contrast against the bright teal scarf. Risk-taking truly does pay off once in a while, so don’t be afraid to try and play around with colours and textures in your outfits!
