Hey peeps! Back with yet another way to style the Devonrae Two-Piece wrap skirt and bell sleeve top set I’ve been obsessed with for the last month, haha. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve styled this look a number of ways to show you the the value of investing in designer pieces. In an effort to move toward more sustainable and conscious fashion purchases, it’s important to note the value in making such investments.
I love the bell sleeve trend that’s re-emerged this summer. I think it adds just the right touch of femininity while still being edgy. The boxy nature of this particular bell sleeve top I felt required some balancing out with the flare of my coveted culotte pants.
When investing in designer pieces, not only are you more likely to find unique items that won’t be seen on everyone, you can dress them up or down in a number of ways as I’ve demonstrated with this two-piece.
The best way to start investing in more quality high-end pieces? Thrift stores and consignment shops! Making the move toward more sustainable and conscious fashion decisions might seem costly at first, and it can be, but there are ways around it. One of my favorites that I’ve found here in NYC is Beacon’s closet. Not only do they have a number of locations in the city, they have an online shop as well!
What are your thoughts on investing in higher-end, high-quality designer brands? What are some ways you’re making more sustainable and conscious fashion decisions? Let’s talk about it! Until next time :).
