Apart from being one of my favorite words, dichotomy makes perfect sense when it comes to style. A division or contrast between two things that are opposed or entirely different, it’s a wonderful way to play, create eye popping texture and interest with your looks especially during fall/winter when layering reigns supreme. A self confessed shiny disease sufferer, I so love a sparkly piece but very rarely do I dress it up. I go the other way and give that lady a make under – it makes her beauty shine even brighter. Try sequins with ripped denim, dishevelled hair, heels and a textured scarf. Staying in the same color palette then adding a darker feature item like this black leather bomber creates divine distinction. Sequins look amazing with army fatiques and cargo pants too. Dichotomy is also one of my sneaky tricks to make second hand look expensive, all these pieces I’m wearing I sourced from The Salvation Army…that’s a dichotomy in itself or is it a contradiction? Who cares, it looks cool and for a whole lot less!
What do you like to mix up in your fashion palatte?
