What is meant by a silhouette? Well, it is basically the overall shape/fit/style of a garment. Ignore all the details like color, prints and accessories and just focus in on the actual shape of the clothing.
To create my silhouettes, I set up a Polyvore account and can I just say, I love this website! How did I not know about this before?! I mean I heard about Polyvore before but I didn’t really know what it was all about and never looked into it. I wish I had!
It has been a great tool to search for garments that I like and put them together in sets to create my silhouettes. I’m such a visual person so I just fell in love with this. If you are doing this challenge and you don’t have an account, I really think you should get one.
Here is what I have come up with for my fall/winter silhouettes. (Remember I am in the southern hemisphere and we will be approaching our colder time of year soon.)
Here is my first example:
This would be a dressy look which would include an a-line skirt, a nice blouse, a cardigan, tights, and pointed flats or wedge heels.
Here is another silhouette for skirts:
This would be a more casual look with a skirt. This would include tights, an a-line skirt, a button up top or nice tee, a looser fitting cardigan, and flat shoes or boots.
Here is one more example of something I would wear quite often:
This would be an everyday casual look with pants. This would include skinny jeans/pants, a tee, button-up, or oversize sweater, a cardigan (various styles), and flat shoes or boots.
As you can see, I am all about comfort. My silhouettes for fall include things like flat shoes, loose fitting clothes (but not too loose) and comfy cardigans.
I also decided to create a set of styles specific for each category of clothing; skirts, dresses, pants, etc. These are not specific to the seasons but just a collection of different shapes and styles I seam to like and wear the most in each category. I tried to focus in on just the shape and ignore other details like the color and print. Here is what I came up with:
