The Wallis Style Advisor
When I was approached by Caroline who works with UK retailer Wallis, I knew that I wanted to participate before she even gave me the details of the collaboration. I had always thought of Wallis as a good place to go for wardrobe staples, and after learning more about the collaboration, my instincts proved correct. Not to toot my own horn or anything but...you know. Toot toot.
Wallis has created the Style Advisor, an app that assesses your style preferences and then creates a specially-edited collection of items for you based on your assessment. I found the Style Advisor to be pretty darn accurate in selecting silhouettes that I am drawn to, and it also helped me hone-in on what my baseline style really is. Sometimes it is hard to be objective about one's own style, and the Style Advisor lets you see your preferences in a tangible format, and allows you to edit them as well.
From my Style Advisor selections, I chose this Black Lace Insert Shell Top. It's a perfect layering piece, and has just the right amount of drape to look great underneath a jacket or worn alone over a pair of trousers. Although I was initially going to style it with a pair of full white trousers, Wallis does this beautifully on their website, so I decided to go in a different direction and give it a little more of a casual edge.
