When I saw this photo browsing through Tommy Ton’s street style shots, the first thing that flashed in my mind was Jenny from the Block circa the risque Versace dress era. Which, when you consider the rest of the photos in this series of Anna Dello Russo, and the fact that she was wearing a watermelon on her head not to long ago, seems a little out of character.
But, for today’s Chic-spiration, she is the perfect role model. There are always styles, materials, colors, and textures that we gravitate towards. I will always zone in on watermelon pink, something with sparkle, a stacked heel, and avoid khaki like the plague. However, stepping out of this comfort zone is what helps us avoid a style rut, and missteps are part of the learning process. Just because you define your style as “preppy” does not mean you have to spend years on end in nautical stripes and box pleats, and working to define a personal style should be an expansion process rather than a limitation.
Have a wonderful weekend!
