One of my favorite trends this fall is a bow blouse. Many of you are skeptical about wearing this trend because it’s something you have seen your grandmother wear years ago.
Adding two contrasting pieces of clothing into one outfit is very chic and adds a fun and unexpected element to the outfit while also bringing balance to the look.
Start with your feminine piece.
The first step is to pick out your feminine piece. I recommend your focal piece of your outfit be feminine and then accessorize with a more edgy piece.
When looking for feminine pieces look for clothing items such as chiffon, lace, or silk. These types of materials are considered extremely feminine and they look amazing on all body types.
The colors that work best are light hues such as white, cream, blush, pastels, and neutral tones since these are softer tones and translate as very feminine.
Next add an Edgy piece
The next style tip is to add darker hues to your look.
- Shoes that have a darker color
- A purse in a black or gray
- Layering with a vest or leather jacket in a darker hue
The main thing is to add darker tones to make your feminine piece not as sweet, but not overpower your overall look.
I added this faux leather jacket as my edgy piece.

Beauty for the Heart~~Life is littered with sudden and unexpected storms. It’s important to remember the storm is the weather of your life not the climate. (Author Unknown)
God is our protector during those unexpected storms. Psalm 91:1-2 says,
Whoever goes to the Lord for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty, can say to him, “You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in you I trust.”
Have a blessed day!
