OOTD – Balance the boxy

20130503-004731.jpg

Top – ASOS (fashionup contest)
Pants – H&M
Shoes – Aldo’s

So I would’ve never purchased this top on my own, but I’m super glad I won it! I thought “how on earth will I rock this?” Then I remembered the printed fitted pants I got from H&M and voila! The fitted cropped pants were the perfect pairing to the boxy shape of the ASOS crisp white bib shirt. It was the perfect balance between boxy and fitted.

When wearing a boxy piece; always make sure to balance it (and your figure) with something a bit more defined (not tight). So for example: boxy top? – slim fit pants, medium heel to avoid looking chopped off by flats and unbalanced with platforms.

Boxy bottoms? Go for a fitted top to cut up a possible sackcloth silhouette.

I chose “Peony” (my white distressed shoes from Aldo) because the shoes gave the outfit that “just enough” dose of polish without being too exaggerated.
