Four ways to wear mustard yellow !

Four ways to wear mustard yellow !

I’ve had this mustard yellow look on my mind for a while and I was ecstatic that I’d get to shoot it, even though it came with consequences.

Finally got to style it and it basically ripped into half on my way back home. I’m talking middle of the skirt rip. I was trying to get on a motorcycle and I heard a tear. Luckily I had a maxi skirt handy, so I wore it on top of my ripped skirt. I don’t want to imagine what would have happened if I didn’t have that maxi skirt.

You should see the look I came up with, so we can decide if the embarrassing skirt rip incident was worth the post. Fingers crossed.

I’m styling this mustard yellow skirt with a sleeveless animal print chiffon top and white courts. I accessorized with a black hand bag, hand candy and sunshades.

Mustard yellow works so well with nude, emerald green and navy blue. The contrast will be amazing. You can also pair with black or white if you’re unwilling to go the contrast route. Accessorize with neutrals like black shoes and a bag and you’ll be good to go.

We should check out some outfit ideas though. What say ye ?

  • Pair a mustard colored tee with a black mini skirt, black heels and bag. The mustard tee will pop and will add glam to your outfit.
  • Pair a nude colored chiffon with a mustard yellow pleated skirt, nude heels and a black bag. You’ll probably look like the good type of candy.
  • Pair a mustard colored round necked tee tucked into emerald tapered pants. Finish up the look with black flats and mini bag.
  • Pair a navy blue structured blazer with a white camisole and mustard yellow skirt. Black accessories would complement the whole look.

Let me know which look you’d rock. What did you think of my outfit ? Ever had an embarrassing skirt day ? I’d love to hear your stories.

How to style a yellow skirt

How to style a yellow skirt

Yellow is such a bright colour and gives off a very bubbly vibe. I mean even the sun is yellow right ?! I probably wouldn’t buy anything coloured yellow without giving it a lot of thought. If you’re with me, raise your hands !

Even though she’s a cheerful colour, most of us would rather invest in a one nation coloured piece. This means a solid coloured piece you can pair with a lot of things without so much thought.

I usually lean towards the neutrals and solids especially black and navy. However I saw this skirt and I loved it, and for some strange reason I didn’t mind it was in yellow.

The asymmetric detail and ripped edges of the skirt was the deal breaker for me. I paired this beauty with this navy blue cami top, black block heels, beaded clutch, statement neck piece and accessories.

Let’s see the other things you can do with yellow ;

White is an obvious pair with yellow, and this is why. I love how she paired the yellow skirt with a white round neck top and black sandals.

 I really like the subtle sexy vibe this outfit gives. The nude accessories paired with the yellow dress is perfect !

 This outfit legit gave me goosebumps. I love how the fuchsia pink blazer makes the look glam with the white shirt and yellow skirt. 

I hope that with these few points of mine, I’ve been able to convince you and not confuse you that a yellow skirt is not such a bad buy ! *drops mic*

Styling face print skirts 

I saw this face print skirt and I couldn’t stop thinking about it literally! I hope January’s been good to you. I’m just here trying to get the generator to start, uggh.

Anyways I’m here for this skirt I just got. I thought that face print was edgy and I already had outfit ideas while I was still trying to decide whether or not to get it. It’s a skater skirt with the portrait face of a girl with dark shades, red lipstick and this fringe bob.

With skirts like this, I like to pick a top in one of the colours on the skirt. Even though I’m sure that a top in black, white or nude would work too, if none of those colours are on the skirt.


I’d wear this look to church; switch my shirt for a camisole and sneakers to have ice cream or something of the sort.

With this face print skirt, I wore a white buttoned down shirt, neon mules and black mini purse. I accessorised with this white scarf on my hair, glasses and hand candy.

You could pair a skirt like this with:

  • an off shoulder top
  • a camisole like I did in this post here
  • a chiffon button down
  • a round necked fitted top
  • a camisole and a jacket, if you’d like to layer

Do you own any face print skirts? How do you usually wear them? I’d love to hear your thoughts! Thank you in advance 🙂

How to wear a cami top

How to wear a cami top

You know that camisole that doesn’t come to mind when you’re looking for what to wear ? Well I thought to talk about the other things you can do with it, besides wearing it under that see through top.

For the sake of clarity, a camisole can also be referred to as a cami or a cami top.

The slip dress trend was so huge last year, wearing inner wear as outer wear has probably never been more chic. Camisoles are mostly worn as inner wear and lately I’ve seen that they can be much more. They’re so versatile and will probably never go out of style.

How to wear a cami top

You can wear them as a standalone or as a layering piece, basically wearing different pieces of clothing on top of each other.

Lately camisoles are more loose and slouchy, and can be tucked into a skirt and paired with heels, worn with high waist denim and sneakers, worn with wide legged pants and strapy sandals, underneath office blazers with work shoes and much more.

How to wear a cami topHow to wear a cami top

Opposites usually work better with clothes, so I’d suggest a fitted camisole tucked into a flared skirt and a loose camisole tucked into a pencil skirt. Chokers or tiny necklaces would be appropriate.

How to wear a cami top

You might want to pair;

  • A lacy camisole and boyfriend jeans.
  • A silk camisole with a kimono and jeans.
  • A silk camisole dressed up with statement accessories and heels.
  • A turtle neck or round neck tee under a camisole and jeans.
  • A light camisole dressed down with jeans or dressed up with black pants.

What’s your favourite way to wear a camisole? Dressed up or down? Paired with black pants or high waist denim?

How to wear a maxi skirt 

Happy New Year guys! *Inserts fireworks*

Can all agree that twenty eighteen is our year?! Yassssss!!! I’m sorry I abuse these exclamation marks.

How to wear a maxi skirt

I hope to love myself some more, self-love is everything guys! You need to feel it to believe it. For me this is more like choosing myself before anyone else. If it’s no good for me, then bye!

I hope to be a stronger human too, trying to let go of the things I fear the most and staying unattached to humans.

In this post I’m styling this floral maxi skirt. I’m pairing it with a denim bralette, a scarf, hoop earrings, and a twenty seventeen trend, the woven bag. Peep those badges on the straps of my bralette! fancy yeah ?

Maxi skirts are basically ankle length skirts which usually touch more like sweep the ground.

How to wear a maxi skirt How to wear a maxi skirt

You might find these tips handy when you want to wear a maxi;

  • What top are you wearing: A flowing skirt like what I have on looks good on a cropped or fitted top and creates a good contrast. It’s the same way a tight skirt would pair well with a loose top.
  • What footwear are you wearing: Sandals or slippers make the look very casual. If you’re petite, heels would add a bit of height. If you’re taller, flats or heels would work, though heels are more suitable if it’ll be worn in the evening.
  • What colours are you wearing: I try to emphasize on one piece of clothing, and this skirt was it for me. You could either mix your patterned skirt with a solid top and vice versa, or maybe go monochrome and rock one colour.

The different ways to style your scarf

Merry Christmas in advance guys !

Its supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, at least that’s what they say. I hope you’re making the best of it.

I’m sorry I haven’t been here like I should, but this life thing happened again.  

The different ways to style your scarf

 I’m wearing this grey yarn effect crop top as an off shoulder, frayed hem demim, side bag {love how they hang off the shoulder} and hand candy. I thought the look was too basic so I used a scarf as a belt.

I love how accessories spice up any outfit. It’s almost like they give it a facelift. 

The different ways to style your scarf

Before you throw that scarf away, you might wanna do some of these things with it;

  • Accessorise your denim – fold your scarf and fit it into the belt holes on your denim.
  • Accessorize your arm candy- loop a scarf around the handle of your favourite bag.
  • Accessorize your hair – wrap your scarf around your messy bun ‘also known as the donought lol’.

The different ways to style your scarf

  • Accessorize your shirt – fold your scarf into a smaller width and tie it round your shirt dress.
  • Accessorize your neck – knot your scarf once on the side of your neck and let the ends drape over your shoulder to the back and front.
  • Accessorize your neck – fold your scarf and wrap it in a circle shape around your neck, sorta makes it look like a choker.
  • Accessorize your wrist – knot a scarf round your wrist.

I’d love to see what you get up to with your scarf. Leave me a comment !

How to wear boxy tops 

How to wear boxy tops

Boxy tops are cut in a box shape and give the upper body a square shape. They work for any occasion from the office to the weekends. These tops don’t give much of a feminine shape and usually just hang off your body, so we’ll need to pick out bottoms that balance the look.

I’m wearing a slightly cropped boxy top, black pearled high waisted mum jeans and white courts. I accessorised with this baker boy hat, my mum’s bag and hand candy.

How to wear boxy topsHow to wear boxy tops

While boxy tops look adorable with fitted bottoms, slouchier pants or jeans also make the look work. The trick is to highlight the waist. Here are some other ways you can wear them;

  • With a pencil skirt: for a feminine look, the slimness of the skirt will balance out the boxy top and will give you a look that will work for the office as well as night time.
  • With a pleated or full skirt: a boxy top with a full or pleated skirt will flatter straight body types. This skirt will add some volume to your bottom part and make you look curvier. Don’t we all want this?!
  • With straight legged pants or skinny jeans: pants like this define your waist and show off your curves.
  • With slouchy pants: if you think your top is a bit masculine, pair it with harem or jogger pants and it will contrast the boxy top and give you a very relaxed look.
