Make A Fashionable Statement

MAKE A FASHIONABLE STATEMENT

If there is anything that I have learned from the world of Fashion, then it is, that it is all about making a statement, we create, design, decorate and dress, too express who and what we are. And what I love is that, we can bring that statement into our living spaces. Because just as we dress to express who and what we are, so we decorate our homes to reflect our personal style.

Super clean in a white T

I cannot think of a more versatile team of clothing then the humble white T-shirt. Seriously what piece of clothing are you able to wear any day of the year, in any season. That said, it’s in the summer that white t-shirt truly becomes a wardrobe necessity, as it can anchor statement pieces such as wildly-printed shorts or colored jeans, take the formality out of work wear, add a casual element to silky, beaded, or even sequin skirts, just convey a sense of laid back summer style with a pair of blue denim cut-off shorts or jeans or nick your boyfriends oversized t-shirt chuck on some statement jewellery and voila you have a tunic dress.
