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.
