How many circles can you see in a single outfit? Well no prizes for guessing, because do I know. I think coordinating an outfit is not limited to of colours, proportions or material. Experimenting with shapes is a fun way to hold a look together, something and not commonly seen on the streets. It didn't happen by chance how so many people love polka dots. I personally believe that it's the wholesomeness that visually attracts the human eye. In mathematics, a circle pretty much means infinity and is literally perfect because is has no corners. The line has no start and end. In ancient Chinese culture, a full bodied woman was the beauty standard as fullness signifies fertility and perfection. Nigel also once shared with me that by default, everything nature holds seek to find a balance. With that kind of principles in mind, it all makes sense how everything works in fashion; how skin tone reacts against certain colours, how most women desire an hourglass figure, how a haircut can flatter the face. It's about finding a balance and wholesomeness.
Taking my polkadot blouse as the starting point, I repeated circles with my sunglasses and bag. I'm really happy with the result because everything seemed to work together without looking overly top-down matchy. I thought the gold elements of my star studs and sunglasses really amplified my white get up, giving it a more luxurious and vintage glam feel. I have been receiving plenty of compliments with my star studs. They're simple, made oversized for extra attention and has a classic shape. Knowing that I'm a huge fan of quirky unusual accessories, these star studs are here to stay in my wardrobe.
