Every once in a while we get an urge to shake things up a bit. To push people (a little) out of their comfort zones, style-wise. That's where Style Swap comes in: We take two people -- each with a very unique look of her own -- and have them switch. This week, we swapped styles on two HuffPost editors.
Emma Mustich, who is from Connecticut, is an associate editor for HuffPost Parents. "My style is very conservative; I wear lots of black and brown," she told us. "I tend to go for the most basic iteration of everything -- I don't like logos or prints on clothes. I have a couple of outfits in rotation, so I just choose one of those, and they usually include a black dress or black pants."
Anthonia Akitunde is the associate editor of HuffPost50. Originally from Kansas City, she counts Tracee Ellis Ross and Rachel Roy as her style icons. Her love for flare is evident in her clothes: Anthonia showed up at our shoot in sequined pants, a chambray shirt and earrings as big as pothole covers. She had this to say on her style: "I like femininity, but with a tomboyish flare. My parents are Nigerian and they would bring crazy printed fabrics home from their trips there, and when I was a kid I rebelled against the prints. I embraced loud prints and bold colors around two years ago; I have more confidence in my decisions and I feel OK with what I like."
Check out the ladies as they swapped their styles.
BEFORE: Emma And Anthonia
AFTER: Emma, Look One
"This is the closest to something I'd actually wear, other than the necklace and earrings. I'd wear it to brunch, but not to the office."
AFTER: Emma Look Two
"I like this dress, but I wouldn't buy it. The dark leggings make it more 'me.' I have coveted these earrings since I first saw Anthonia wearing them."
AFTER: Emma Look Three
"As a one time thing, I think it's great. Even colleagues walking past are surprised at how different I look."
AFTER: Anthonia Look One
"I don't love this look. I'm uncomfortable. The halter is restricting.
AFTER: Anthonia Look Two
"I feel very professional. To make it more me, I would add a long, graphic necklace. This color isn't want I would normally wear; I'd wear it in white or coral."
AFTER: Anthonia Look Three
"I feel comfortable and I really love the shoes. I'm short, so I usually shy away from booties that cut my legs off at the ankles. I do feel naked without earrings."
