JTO Styling: Know Your ‘Hero’ Piece

If you told me I would ever incorporate a white co-ord, gingham blazer, and denim corset into one outfit, I would shudder in disbelief and probably call you crazy. But somehow, with my continued obsession with random layering I managed to get all of these elements into a single look – and also a fringed bag to top it all off.

To style this look (and many others) I tend to start with a main item of clothing or an accessory that will be the focal point of the look. This is the item that I’ll build on top of, let’s call this a “hero piece”. For example, the hero of this outfit is the matching white top and trousers with fray detail. After deciding the base or focus of your outfit all you have to do is build on that. This method is key when I’m trying to piece together a look with complicated or eclectic layering. So this shows you how easy and eclectic outfit can be!
