WIW -- Update the Dated Challenge

What is dated: The slim fit layering tee is somewhat dated. I think I got it summer 2010.

The straight legged jeans aren't exactly dated but they're not the super slim cropped style that is trendy right now. Also a 2010 item.

My updating techniques:
- I layered the sheer striped grey tee with a neon yellow tank. (On trend color)
- The belt is also neon yellow. (On trend color)
- Using a grey daytime clutch. (On trend bag)
- Grey and neon yellow are an on trend color combo.
- Neutral wedge sandals aren't exactly trendy but not dated either (I just got these, they are from DV).

Overall the look is more classic than my usual waist-surrendering approach.

    It looks fab on you but I didn't realize things from 2010 are considered "dated". :( I love how you put the tank under the t-shirt and I adore the nude wedges with the dark jeans!

    Denise, you have updated these now classic pieces to have a fashion edge which is true to your persona. Well done.

    Most of my stuff is from 2010 :-P but I really love this look :-)

    Like the way you take different pieces & combine thm into a lassic look with a bit of an edge i.e. the neon yellow.

    1. This outfit is perfectly you and perfectly fab.

    2. If items from 2010 are "dated," then I am in a. world. of. hurt. ;)

    2010 dated? I sure hope not! You look modern and stylish.

  • Midwest Girl replied 8 years ago

    Coco--you look great and current in this outfit. I wouldn't have considered any of the items dated. However, I'm probably slow to catch on to trends and hang on to some of my clothes too long.

    You look awesome! Love the little peeks of neon!

  • Erica replied 8 years ago

    Love your outfit! Especially the pop of neon :)

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    KILLER. Love the neon.

    psssst! Nothing about these items was dated in the first place :)

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    You look AMAZING in this.

    And if 2010 is dated, I'm in more trouble than I thought. Oh dear!!

  • shevia replied 8 years ago

    Yes, I cannot accept 2010 as being dated - but you do look fantastic. Love the belt.

  • Kyle replied 8 years ago

    Love your style!

  • Beth Ann replied 8 years ago

    So fun! So "you." What a terrific way to incorporate the neon trend.

  • christieanne replied 8 years ago

    Not dated but is terrific! Fun new combination for you too.

  • rae replied 8 years ago

    I also had a hard time figuring out why those items were dated, but now they look extra fresh and current!

  • ManidipaM replied 8 years ago

    I like how you think when you play dress-up, Denise! ;-)

    That pop of neon and the daytime clutch make such a difference to basics!

  • Kari replied 8 years ago

    I don't see these individual pieces as dated... IMO the striped tee is more classic but just not cutting edge on trend. I love how you wore it here, especially with the shoes!
