Keep It Simple
Start by selecting tones that are neutral or a color palette like a black/white contrast. If you do this, you likely can't get the rest of the ensemble wrong and it will be easy to layer pieces or accessory to the look. These pants are just the basic black but I love how loose fitting it is and how it tapers down giving the perception of longer legs and an effortless classic feel. I added this white and black polka dot ruffle henry shell blouse from Ann Taylor Loft and love how the look can be transitioned into an office wear by adding a jacket or seamlessly into an after work look for cocktails or dinner with friends.
Add Classic Pieces
Accessorize by adding simple yet timeless classic pieces. For this look, I opted to stick with the monochromatic colors so black bag, shoes, and bracelet all add a varying tone of color. You may be inspired by how you can turn a black and white piece into simple elegance with just a few accessories. Even black accessories can have patterns too! So, for the shoes, I opted for a Charles David polka dot pump since it adds a little bit of flair to the white polka dot blouse. You can still go for a plain colored shoe and still look great. I love jewelry pieces from Michael Kors so this cuff bracelet which you can purchase online or at Neiman Marcus adds a bold statement without being too gaudy. I have also linked a similar bracelet under the "Shop My Favorites". Finally, always complete your look with a favorite bag but keep your color palette and tone in mind.
Finally, own the clothes you wear. Keep in mind that it is not always about what you wear, but how you wear it. With that said, wear your clothes with self-confidence and you will always look amazing! This means whatever the brand or price, wearing any outfit in a dignified manner and character, will exude a level of self-confidence and carry through in making you look great!!! Now isn't this what every woman wants?
