Signature Silhouette


I may not have a signature style but I would be willing to claim this silhouette as my signature silhouette:



I’m not claiming this is the most flattering silhouette for everyone, I’m saying it’s the silhouette my particular body feels the most comfortable in.  Although, I think one of the reasons I feel so comfortable in it is because I do feel like it flatters me.  For me, a full skirt, defined waist, fitted top and heels is fail-safe.  Made of win, if you will.

Today’s winning outfit is a vintage, pleated skirt in bright poppy (thifted) paired with a navy- and white-striped tee (Target), bright, multicolored belt (Target), platform sandals (Banana Republic “Natalie”) and a few bracelets.  And seriously?  I love it.

Do you have a signature silhouette, Dear Reader Friends?  If so, what is it?

Happy Tuesday, All!

  3. Very cute outfit! I adore that skirt. it's the perfect color for spring.
    That is definitely a good silhouette for you. I dont have a signature silhouette... mostly because the changes in weather & my mood really affect my look from day to day.

  4. Love it. That's one of my favourite silhouettes too! Though I'm also a fan of the fitted top/pencil skirt silhouette as well.

  5. Gorgeous outfit! The navy, white and bright poppy color combo is very crisp and fun. :) And that silhouette is so flattering for you! Hmm, Iʻm still looking for my signature silhouette.

  7. I am new to your blog and enjoy seeing what you wear. I live in SW Washington and am very impressed with your biking in skirts and heels in this weather!

  8. Love your outfit! The multi-colored belt and b/w striped shirt combo are so cute! My favorite silhouette on me is the classic 50s fit and flare. It never fails to flatter. However, my go-to uniform is a shirt buttoned up to the top button with a chunky necklace. It instantly dresses up any outfit and is a lot of fun to wear under my fit-and-flares!

  13. You're right: this is totally the Gracie silhouette.

    I don't know that I have a silhouette; right now, I'm still too busy playing around to really settle down on one "Tia-look." :)

  14. Your hair is totally gorgeous in this pic, sweetie! I love it all down and curly.

  15. Dittos on this silhouette...and I feel like it is one that's flattering for almost anyone. The cinched belt and longer length skirt are just so feminine and beautiful! Not to mention your belt is wicked awesome :)

  16. That IS totally your silhouette! I've never thought of it before. Not having any waist, my favored silhouette is slouchy. Sometimes I flirt with a cinched belt though. . . :)

  17. When I'm not pregnant and waistless, this is a silhouette I really like, too. I think it's really flattering on our tall bodies (I'm about 6', from Oregon, and named Grace, so we've got a few things in common!).

  18. My signature silhouette is similar to yours - maybe a bit fuller in the skirt.

    SUCH a great color of orange, BTW. ;)

  19. I love your plissee skirt! Nice color!
    You look so sympathetic and pretty! :)

  20. I'd totally go to prom with you! Prolly would be more fun than my actual date and maybe my height wouldnt look so weird next to you in a photo! Our heights would compliment each other! Moving on... I LOVE this silhouette! I think it just works for us tall folk. I love a high waisted a line midi skirt like nobody's business! (like that american apparel orange one i now have in two colors... i just cant get enough)

  21. Oh, how I covet your skirt :) I've been looking for ages for a pleated chiffon skirt. Great silhouette!

  22. Yep, this is my signature silhouette, too. While I like wearing things that aren't fitted at the waist (like baggy sweaters), I definitely feel most attractive in dresses or skirts that define my waist.

  23. Ohmygeez...you look gorgeous! Yes...this is YOUR "sig-sil".
    And thanks for giving me an outfit idea! ;)

  24. Belt buddies! I will have to steal-borrow the rest of this outfit concept to go with the belt. (Yes, it makes sense to design the rest of the outfit around the belt.)

  25. This silhouette looks great on you :)
    Mine is also focused on wearing something that is slim-cut or tighter on the top and a long flowy skirt to the ground. I also wear pants regularly but they are loose so legs are not part of my silhouette.
