Fashion Fridays: Leaf PrintsFriday, August 29, 2014

To be honest, leaf prints have never appealed to me in the past. There's just too much green. I wore a lot of green during my school days, no thanks to the schools that I went to, and among all the colours in the colour wheel, green is probably my least favourite. Well, but lo and behold, green has taken the fashion scene by storm this season, in the form of leaf motifs no less.
This was what I had in mind initially, but that very day, I decided on a clean, minimalist look by incorporating a white crop top and playing with proportions. Crop tops and high waist bottoms are a match made in heaven. When paired together, they elongate your torso and make you look taller than you really are.
To further balance out the busy leaf prints and avoid revealing too much skin, I threw on a long white vest. White vests like these are worthy wardrobe investments as they serve as wonderful cover-ups (I don't fancy skimpy outfits) and can easily take you from work to play.
