Two Piece Outfits :
So where do I begin with my love for the two piece outfits…….They are simply fabulous!! YES!! We love to flaunt our mid – riff in that peeping combination. Two piece outfits have been catching a high wave for a while.
A two piece outfit is never a dress down…no matter what you wear, a crop top with shorts, pants or a skirt- they all look astounding.
Going back to History in the 1940’s women wore high waisted fitted tops with the A -line skirts and pants. With the start of the World War 2, strict rationing on fabric took place and the dresses became shorter. Tops became more masculine and there was an invention of the shoulder pads making women look edgy and sharper. In 1940’s most tops were designed to reveal very little skin unlike today.
The two piece outfits gave liberty to women to experiment more with their looks and play with their wardrobe. They mixed and matched the tops, skirts and trousers. They could make a new outfit everyday. It became so practical and fun at the same time.
We obviously cannot forget the iconic fashion developer, Gabriella Chanel who introduced the most amazing two piece sets. The tweed jackets and skirts famously called as a “Chanel Suit” became a ritzy proclamation. And then on, the sets became popular for both formal and casual affair.
At present the rage for off shoulder crop tops, spaghetti, ruffled tubes with balloon sleeves, ruffled off shoulder tops with high waisted pants, shorts, skirts etc have possessed the mind of most vogue lovers. The diverse prints of Polka, Ankara, Flannel, Geometric, Retro, Animal etc own the power to define your vibe. It’s your style that perfectly portrays your mood for the occassion – You can choose to look classic, bohemian, bold, exotic, arty, carefree, vivacious and more.
My outfit has a casual, happy and a fun vibe. It is perfect for a lunch with friends or a sundowner anywhere. You can wear a cute headband to add vibrance to your appearance. Funky pair of glasses can spark your look up. Carry a cool colour bag that enhances the colour of your outfit. Team it up with subtle shoes so it breaks the shebang to bring a fine balance. Lock your look with an enticing fragrance and shine on …….inside out!!
