Joe Fresh x The Style Common

December 28, 2012

Top & heels c/o Joe Fresh, jeans c/o James Jeans, bag c/o Mary Nichols
blazer c/o Spank, necklace c/o Brooklyn Designs

Technically, I’m kind of a hybrid between an hourglass and an athletic body type, but even with my uniquely extreme proportions, I’ve always identified with the sporty dressing of tall, Amazon-like fitness fanatics like Cameron Diaz (even if I’m a few inches short of her height).

What’s more, all I have on the event calendar for what remains of the holiday season are casual parties: whether it’s drinks with my friends or a house party for New Year’s, there’s never really been a better time to tap into the boyish yet sleek aesthetic that athletic body types pull off so well.

Since this Joe Fresh sequin-adorned top kind of does the talking on its own, I thought I’d keep it streamlined elsewhere with my outfit: a cropped and fitted blazer, coated skinnies, elegant heels, a basic bag and minimal jewelry kept the focus on the top, making it an easy yet standout look for a casual get-together!

Check out my fellow The Style Common girls Alicia, Jen T. and Jen P. for more sequins-styling inspiration and tips on dressing for your body type!

    Well you know how I love Joe Fresh, and this sequin tank is no exception! I like how you've styled it, right down to the rolled up cuffs on your jacket. You always dress to flatter your shape, strong and curvy!

    i LOVE this! everyone's style is so unique and i adore each way this darling sequin top was used in all the looks. Alex, you're SO purdy!!!! Joe Fresh has never looked so good. great share on shapes too, i find it challenging sometimes to know what works for my own body type. it can be a bit daunting but when you have insp like this it makes the job of getting dressed each day that much easier! thanks girls!! xo ♥

    Great job on making something as splashy as a sequin top perfect for the everyday. I also think it's really great how you mixed so many different textures to make this monochromatic outfit interesting 🙂

    Happy new year!

    I love this combo of sequins and boyish,it's just my cup of tea 🙂 the sequin jumper couldn't be in more gorgeous color. It looks so lovely with your paired look and I think it's so versatile piece to have in wardrobe.

    Hope you had a wonderful Holidays!
    Happy New Year!

    p.s. after Christmas I caught a cold, this evening I feel much better so I thouht I have to visit my lovely bloggers.

    Love this collaboration with Joe Fresh! They're seriously one of my favourite stores with such great prices. Love the sequins; super festive and super cute. I wish I could say my body type was athletic since it would imply that I do some sort of physical activity… but who am I kidding? I think I envy your work ethic the most!
