Fashion? Trying too hard…

This is an interesting one for me, and is one inspired by a blog that I have just read about what to wear for your body shape. I have spent the last 10 years everyday deciding what to wear, worrying about what I look like and desperately trying to find an image.

I have a friend who wears ridiculous things, every pattern, fabric, colour you can imagine and flings it all into one outfit totally effortlessly. I have tried this – I looked ridiculous. This picture below is a classic example. I am the one on the far right. My second year of university. I thought this denim jumpsuit and bandana looked really cool. Well, I didn’t. But I thought that everyone else would think I was super edgy and alternative: the total wrong reason to wear something!


I have also tried the minimalist look – tapered trousers and a white blouse, well my big boobs and very short legs made this also look silly.

I have desperately tried to copy fashions and styles in order to forge my own and it has never really worked. I would absolute love to have Gok Wan come in and give me a capsule wardrobe so that I did not stare blankly into my wardrobe everyday wondering what to wear. I would also love to start completely from scratch. However, I guess all of this makes me totally normal. Sometimes I look nicer than others, most days I was not to shove on leggings and a jumper and my old trainers because hey, it’s super comfy.

But I do want to forge a bit more a style for myself. And I am calling out for advice on this one…

Help a girl out who tries excessively hard…

Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Go for shorter length skirts and dresses, it will elongate your legs unlike maxi lengths. Balance is important here, so tuck in your top with high waisted bottoms (especially skirts) to create more of a waist. You can even tuck in a blouse into your fitted denim and pair with a belt and heels. Try v-necks, empire waists, peplum. Monochrome also works, or if you don’t want to do all over color, match your shoes to your bottoms. (black tights with black shoes, or nude heels with bare legs). Best of luck, check out my blog for more! xo Autumn
