I used to think that there were certain fashion pieces and trends that I would never rock because I felt that they weren’t my style so I wouldn’t give it a shot at all. For years I have avoided off-the-shoulder tops, no matter how good they looked on other people. I was just completely convinced that there was no way I would ever make it work with ay of my other pieces in my wardrobe and that I would end up looking like I’m wearing somebody else’s clothes. But when I saw this PepperMayo top, it was an instant winner and I knew I had to have it! I didn’t have a clue how I was going to style it at the time but I was up for the challenge.
Upon trying on the top for the first time, I fell completely in love with the off-the-shoulder design that I was always so certain I couldn’t pull off. I wanted to balance the feminine top with more sporty pieces, to tie it in with my personal style. Because the top is a statement piece, I chose all-white everything else so that the look is subtle but bold.
I encourage all of you to every now and then, pick out a piece that you think you’d never wear and give it a shot! This turned out to be one of my favourite looks in recent times and I never would’ve known that if I hadn’t taken a chance with something different. Fashion is all about challenging yourself and making changes. So don’t forget to stay curious and have fun with it!
