She calls it mixing “fabulous and frumpy.” I call it a combination of “high and low” (formality, not price). I’ve got the fabulous/high sequin jacket and the frumpy/low plaid flannel shirt for an attention-grabbing look that doesn’t scream “I tried too hard.”
I wore this to both the blogger event and work. I’m a little uncomfortable wearing either the sequin jacket or the flannel shirt to the office on their own. But combined, they seem to cancel each other out. Positive sequins plus negative flannel = neutral wear. Ah, fashion math.
The final part of the style equation is, as Tamia puts it, FANTASTIC accessories. This necklace and pair of boots are among my favorites.
