"Mmmmmm".... that's the sound I sometimes I make when I see a style that will "up" my wardrobe game. Yep, that's the same "mmmm" sound that Homer Simpson makes as he embarks on a deliciously glazed donut. Now I want a donut...okay let's focus people. What's all this about other than the need to now eat a donut?! Well my awesome peeps, it's about 4 styles that we've all seen that can make an ordinary outfit climb the "wow" scale.
1. Stripe top 2. Pencil skirt 3. Blazer 4. Ankle boots
These styles are classic, plays well with other pieces, looks great on every shape and my fave, affordable!
I have yet to meet a stripe top that I didn't love. I mean, it's so good!!! The DNA of a stripe top: creates an automatic classic look, adds pattern/ interest and can be found in a price range that doesn't break the style bank. I went with this fitted bodysuit from Nordstorm Rack that was a major score. I'm talking under $10 people!
Don't be scared as I mention this style. The game is changing on pencil skirts. That means there are so many more styles out there to flatter those yummy curves or in my case lack thereof. It's classic ( see the trend here) and allows you to inject a feminine style which can be edged up by changing up the texture or pattern. This luscious mustard suede skirt I'm wearing is by Topshop and also a great find from Nordstorm Rack. This style is a bit high waisted which makes this look scream chic and it's so comfy!!
Oh the fun to be had with blazers. Get out there and just try on a few. It can be tailored or boyfriendy ( aka loose fit). Whichever you choose, it'll bring a serious dose of style to your looks. The bevy of prices can vary but it really comes down to fit. If it looks great, get it!! I'm wearing a great find by Rag and Bone that I snagged on sale at Fancy Pants in downtown Boise. I've worn this blazer with shorts, denim, over a dress....I could go on. The masculine element of a blazer paired with all of our ladylike assets screams style wow....yes please!
You guys know that I will preach it all day every day...I refuse to be uncomfortable! Why? Because there is so many styles out there that provide comfort and yasss girlll, looks amazing!! One of my go to in my shoe arena is a great pair of ankle boot!! Comfy, versatile and provides a modern fresh look to any outfit. I'm a fan of a lower ankle boot like these when wearing skirts. They show off the ankle and creates a leaner silhouette. These are one of my new favorite pairs on heavy rotation from Target. YASS!! Target. That's the great thing about style, you can find it any and everywhere.
If you snag any of these styles let me know!! I love LOVE hearing your comments and feedback. It keeps this poofy hair gal on her style toes ;)
