I have been a little absent recently due to work commitments and a few personal commitments with family. I looked at most of the birthday looks but didn't get much chance to comment.
But I was thinking about statement pieces.....which I love, but of course some statements don't get worn so much - they don't feel quite right, or they are too noticeable, or we get sick of them.
But when we get them right - they can be so right.
Excluding 2020 purchases ( a bit too early for me to know about) here are my current statement workhorses. Interesting three of these pieces were second hand/thrifted, and two were added new.
I don't track wears but they would all be well over 30 wears with the possible exception of the two piece dress (probably between 20-30 for the skirt and maybe 15-20 for the camisole - I mostly wear them together but the skirt a little more alone).
For me - dresses, accessories and toppers are the best statements. Tops I often get a bit sick of and find can be hard to layer. I rarely wear statement pants or jeans or shorts. Shoes can be a good bet for me especially if casual - currently I don't really own any but silver loafers and pewter high tops have been brilliant in the past.
How about you - do you own statement workhorse pieces that have become signature pieces for your style?
