Fashion Over Reason: Long Lines

Long Lines

Disclaimer: this photo is from before my mane transformation, clearly. Now that that's out of the way, I just wanted to take a small break from posting about fashion month since it feels like any sort of outfit post was many moons ago. And it's alway good to switch it up, am I right? So today I'm discussing the lines of an outfit: there's something about playing with proportions that is always really interesting and appealing to me. It's a way to stand out and to think outside the style box, if you will. Sometimes, non-traditional shapes or pairings can make for the most surprising, not to mention stylish, combo.

You see a lot of fashion muses these days experimenting with variations of that, like Yasmin Sewell, Taylor Tomasi Hill, Columbine Smille... It's a nice break from the norm and it lays the groundwork for more personality and less conventionality. It's also a way to make a monochromatic sombre palette, like mine yonder, feel a little more exciting.
