Throughout most of my writing I have mentioned, and seriously cannot stress enough, how important comfort is to me. Whether it be the material of a garment or the style of a particular piece, comfort is key. I am the type of girl that cannot stand skintight clothing that I have to squeeze into and adjust every time I move. I truly believe that being comfortable goes hand in hand with radiating confidence, and that confidence is beauty. This same sense of comfort and style was portrayed in A Détacher‘s most recent ready-to-wear collection. The colors were offbeat and fabrics were loose. Mona Kowalska said she wanted the clothes to look (and probably feel as cozy as) hand-me-downs.
In this week’s outfit I feel 100 percent comfortable because I was able to pair some of my favorite pieces together to celebrate the debut of spring in Michigan. With the snow quickly melting, I was very eager to break out my favorite article of clothing—a sundress! This purple peacock print dress was a gift from my best friend. Not only does it have sentimental value but also fits and feels perfect. The silk-like fabric is so soft. It skims my body nicely without being too clingy and has a high-low cut to add movement. Every girl should have a favorite sundress that they can rely on to brighten any day.
Since it isn’t quite summer yet, a cardigan is a must to keep the light breeze at bay. I chose one that mimicked the cut of the dress. It also looked like a similar fabric used in Kowalska’s collection. I love the swish and sway from the light fabric of the dress and cardigan when walking around campus,
To keep things in true Margaux style, add Dr. Martens and pile on jewelry. My Dr. Martens are my favorite footwear. They go with almost anything and are always a perfect choice to keep things grungy. I also feel best when my hands are covered in my favorite rings. I have rings from trendy boutiques and thrift stores, but my utmost favorite is a gold engagement ring with a dark emerald handed down to me by my French grandmother. Being able to look down at it and know that I have a part of her with me is an extremely reassuring feeling.
Feeling good in one’s outfit and emitting an air of confidence is a sure way to have a great day everyday!
