Question from Isabella: “Hey Clarisse! I have an outfit called Saiges Parade Outfit. It tends to collect dust in the back of my dolls closet as I don’t know how to use it. Can you please make a post on it for me?”
Question from unicornsnrainbows2014: “Hi Clarisse! So I have an outfit that I would love for you to help me with. It is the flower sweater and skirt set from AGs summer release last year. I would love to buy the outfit, but I need help convincing myself that it would be a good outfit to buy…could you show me some mix and match potential in it? I know it’s there…:)”
Flower Sweater and Skirt Outfit and Saige’s Parade Outfit
As I started playing around with these two outfits, I realized how much mix-and-match potential there was between them, so I decided to do a 2-for-1 post! I used a virtual outfit creating website (Polyvore) to come up with some outfits. There are mostly AG pieces, and I filled in the gaps with some things from Etsy and girl-sized basics that can easily be translated into things your doll may have in her wardrobe.
Truly Trendy: Don’t say goodbye to those trendy summer maxi skirts yet! Pairing them with sweaters is a great way to transition into fall. For accessories, try choosing a contrasting cool color, such as this medium blue, to balance the brightness of the sweater.
Skirt: ThisTooBoutique on Etsy
Shoes: Plaid Party
Bag: Saige’s Accessories
Flower Power: I just love the way the flowers on Saige’s parade boots match the floral skirt from the other outfit, so I had to do an outfit with them together. The sparkly camp top picks up the colors in the skirt as well, and a fun hat adds that extra touch of style.
Top: Sparkly Camp
Hat: Seaside Tote Set
Peachy Sweet: The adorable peachy colored skirt from the Coconut Cutie outfit is just so lovely with Saige’s Parade top! Get a similar look by pairing neutrals with the colors in the blouse for a mono-chromatic feel.
Vest: Weekend Fun
Shoes: True Spirit Meet
Skirt: Coconut Cutie
While we’re on the Coconut Cutie outfit, the adorable Coconut tee looks great with Saige’s parade pants and belt. Jazz up a simple tee-and-jeans look by adding colorful accents like these fringe boots or a hat with some detail.
Tee: Coconut Cutie
Boots: Sparkly Camp
Hat: Bitty Little Hearts
Bright and Bold: Here’s another look that plays with the colors in the floral skirt. Saige’s belt looks great over the skirt with a tucked-in top, and bold colored shoes, glasses, and a contrasting bag are great ways to spice up an outfit.
Layered-up: A collared shirt with a pull-over sweater is a great go-to look for fall, so be sure to have a few of each in your wardrobe! This works well with jeans and sneakers, or you could use ideas from one of the other outfits like a skirt and some more accessories.
Jeans: Bright Stripes
Shoes: Striped Hoodie
I hope this helps give you some ideas!
