3 Mood-Boosting Looks Using Separates

It was one of those days when I was feeling blah, demotivated, and glum. Maybe the effects of our current situation has already caught up on me? Or was I just getting restless? Anyway, I tried to fight the feeling(ssssss) and turned to my closet. 

I took out my Verdal top (in Pine) and its matching Kethra pants, a set I'm completely bonkers about! I just love the balance of loose silhouettes and just a hint of skin, thanks to the cropped cut of the top. Plus, you can dress it up or pare it down, depending on the look you're going for. Here are three quick outfits I came up with.

Making Christmas Colors Work

The Verdal top and Kethra pants worn with sporty sandals

Sometimes, you just see beauty in the unexpected and pairing this set with my multicolored sporty sandals was but natural. Yes, I'm aware that it's very Christmas-y, but that's okay! While my footwear of choice isn't all red, I feel like this pop of color made the look quite interesting. Certain colors may seem tacky at first, but you'll never know until you try wearing them right?

Bring Out Your Signature Pieces

Balancing feminine with masculine by styling the Verdal top with jeans and white sneakers

When all else fails, reach for your signature pieces—mine is a pair of high waist jeans and white sneakers. Think of the Verdal top as an update on your basic tee, so have faith that most of your bottoms will definitely work with it. But if you want to skip on overthinking your outfit, grab your go-to's and you'll be out (or ready for WFH) in a jiffy. 

Mix in Prints

Go for vibrant prints when wearing the Kethra pants

To balance out the wide-leg cut of the Kethra pants, I went for a bold, striped top. The result is a play on colors and lines, which even creates the illusion of length—so yeah, I feel like I'm 5'9" here. Haha! Going for a bright, printed top with these pants make your look more playful and would therefore, cheer you up. Watch yourself feel jollier with just an outfit change—that's the power of clothes.

The fear of uncertainty may get to us any day, but we have to keep going. As simple as dressing up for that Zoom meeting or making yourself a mean cup of coffee, try to get on with the day and go that extra mile to boost your mood. I can say that after playing dress up with these separates, I did feel better. Counting my blessings and knowing that I am safe with my loved ones also helped. 

Hope you're all safe and well, dear Seekers!
