Outfit: The Cut-Out Shirt

Pics thanks to Polienne 

The cut-out shirt: a dangerous one. The way you style this item really decides the way it comes across. Paired with a short skirt, bare legs and high heels, this shirt can look rather cheap. Worn with big hoop earrings and a high ponytail it screams bad ‘80s trend. Nonetheless, its bright green colour immediately caught my eye at Forever21. Since I love everything green, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and convinced myself I was able to pull this trend off. 
I decided to emphasize the colourfulness of the shirt by pairing it with a bold blue cardigan, neon necklace and lovely ethnic clutch – which I totally love! Since I wore this outfit to attend the Tommy Hilfiger Promise collection launch and the Oona PR housewarming afterwards, some sparkle was in order. Enter the glitter booties, my favourite party shoes of the moment. Also, these pictures remind me to buy a new pair of fitted black jeans asap! 
I’m spending today at the H&M showroom in Brussels, where I’ll be seeing and styling the new Fashion Against Aids Festival Collection. Of course you can expect a full report on the collection and my day soon, but if you like live updates, check out the Dogs and Dresses Facebook page!
