One of my favorite parts about blogging is being exposed to different styles. It's amazing how women from all over the world have such distinct interpretations of fashion.
Sarah, the blogger behind Classy Girls Wear Pears has the quintessential New England preppy style down to a "T." I love reading through her blog and bookmarking my favorite outfits, then using them as a loose guideline on days when I don't know what to wear. She had an amazing collection of Milly dresses and more button-ups than I can imagine.
I decided to do a style switch post taking some of my favorite outfits of hers and showing you how versatile they can be with a few changes!
With interesting basics like this sweater or these bermuda shorts, switching what you wear on one half can completely change your look. From preppy to edgy or bohemian.
In this switch, changing the outer layer is everything! Good outerwear can make such an impact. Layering on a floral sweater is a fun mix of patterns, or add some faux fur for a luxurious look.
Lastly, changing what you wear underneath vertain pieces can change your whole outfit. A lacy bodycon dress that shows above AND below a skirt is a fun play on proportions. Or add leather pants and boots to an oxford for a sexy "I-just-woke-up-and-look-this-good" vibe.
No matter your style, take a not from prepsters like Sarah. HEr collection and endless combo of classic pieces shows how valuable they are! Changing little details and adding new accessories can shift the entire feeling of a look. Play around with it!
Who are your favorite bloggers to draw inspo from?
