Hey everyone! Sorry we didn’t post for three days but the picture we took for Monday’s upload was low quality and it was difficult to see our clothes but we’re back and here’s our entry to Teen Vogue Wardrobe Remix Contest! I’m not sure if we’re allowed to since there are two of us, but we wanted to go ahead and attempt it anyways because it seems like a lot of fun.
The items we chose are clothes that have shown up quite a few times on the ChicBlog already, which goes to show how versatile they are. We love to repeat clothing, but not outfits and find ways around using one piece millions of times.
Go to our blog for more pictures. WE HAVE NO STYLE
IRIS: My item is a cream colored lace dress from Forever 21 which I use all the time and in millions of different ways. It’s been shown on our ChicBlog twice. I styled with a thrifted dark blue lace shirt under, HUE mint green tights, a pink statement necklace from Kohls and magenta colored shoes from Marshalls. I wanted to emphasize the texture of the lace so the layering of the two lace pieces did that for me. The dark blue color takes the delicate feel of the lace away and makes the whole look more grounded and impacting. I finished it off with pinkish accessories and a brown bag because I wanted to keep a playful vibe, very characteristic of Teen Vogue, which I read religiously.
DANIEL: My piece to remix is a pair of black dress shorts I got from JCPenney. They are insanely comfortable, an important factor when choosing versatile clothing. I paired it with a black sheer shirt from H&M layered with a Urban Outfitters lace shirt underneath, Forever 21 12×12 leggings and black boots. The necklace is also from Forever 21. I wanted to do a slightly religious, gothic look that also played with textures and sheerness. The overall outfit comes off as very androgynous, a style I love.
IRIS: This time, I went for a more colorful outfit. The striped shirt is thrifted, HUE pink tights, Kohls shoes, Forever 21 belt and necklace, and a butterfly from Michael’s craft store. I love the playful colors of this outfit, the shocking blues are cohesive from my butterfly to my necklace and belt and then the color changes with a pop of pink for the tights. Colorful tights are great for adding fun and a completely different look to any outfit. I used the dress as a skirt and belted the shirt to give it a peplum silhouette.
DANIEL: Shirt from Forever 21, H&M blazer, belt borrowed from Iris, magenta socks, and TUK creepers. This look is sort of a play on “business casual”/“old lady” and has a slight 90s vibe to it as well. The bold pattern of the hounds-tooth is great against tan leather and black suiting. I love pairing these shorts with a blazer to give a different connotation to a suit and it always looks great. For the second outfit, I folded the shorts to give them a completely different silhouette and look. Both of our outfits were choices of the weather, opting for simpler looks because it was so hot.
IRIS: Hat & skirt thrifted, Vera Wang black tights, Urban Outfitters flats, Bag from a garage sale, thrifted jacket, necklaces from mom and swapmeet. I used the lace on this dress to add texture and pattern to another skirt. I was going to put the skirt completely on top of the dress but I wanted to keep the dress the main focus, instead of covering it. The floral under the floral lace gives a unique and cool look. I also tied the ribbon on the dress in the front to keep it from looking completely the same. The dress looks very different in the third outfit compared to the others because I kept the neutrals and light colors on top and wore black tights instead of colored ones.
DANIEL: H&M shirt, blazer, watch, necklace and bag all borrowed from Iris, Knee socks, black Doc Martens. I love the bright red color of this shirt, it’s loud but proper because of the very tailored and refined cut of it. The necklace, borrowed from Iris, is almost bolo-tie-esque which looks great against the bold red. The short bag with the chain handle looks amazing worn as a cross body bag, especially unique because it is so short.
