Every month, we ask one of our Gwynnie Bee members to take a style outside of their wheelhouse for a 24-hour test drive. This month we asked our featured influencer Clem, of BonjourClem to try something new our very own neighborhood of Manhattan. Stepping outside her style profile, see how this darling french model took the Tiana B Dress with Split Puffed Sleeve in Multi Paisley Print for a chic day on the town!
How would you describe your current personal style? I love a good oversize fit, with structure and a boyish, yet sexy silhouette.
What brands do you usually shop? I love Levi’s and good American for jeans, Zara and COS for tops and ASOS for everything in between.
Why did you choose this style to take a risk with? It’s totally out of my comfort zone, but I love the fall colors, so I thought I’d give it a try. The balloon sleeves, the fabric, the cut, everything screams 70’s, which I like on paper, but would never wear. So today I did, and I feel pretty cool. The colors match my hair and would be a great fit for any complexion. The dress is comfy and did not need much styling!
How would you rate this piece on a scale of 1-5 hearts, 5 being great? Probably a 4. Not my everyday go to but a very good, comfy piece, easy to style and have fun with.
How did you feel wearing this style? Way more feminine then I usually feel: very hippie chic.
How would you style this piece? I styled this pice with some nice high, vinyl boots to push the 70’s accent all the way. I would keep the accessories to a minimum since this dress is enough just on its own, unless you’re going to a retro party, then pile it on!
