Fashion is not just visual. It is a tactile experience. It can create movement and rhythm. Which is why I become very defensive when someone says “it’s just clothing!”
Fashion and clothing create a mood. A presence. And in an instant you can communicate who you are, what you’re all about and what you’re here to achieve in an instant.
This outfit is one such example of playful movement being created from a tactile embellishment. I love tassels! My husband will tease me and ask where I parked my horse! Yeehaw cowboy!
The styling here is perfect: a bright pop of colour in the form of a cute playsuit juxtaposed against a rugged, cool-girl pleather biker jacket! The cherry on top has to be one of my favourite pair of flats: patent leather pointed toe ankle boots. The whole look and feel is comfy cool. Too cool for school!
