All In The Details

April showers bring May flowers, and after this almost consistently warm (finally!) May the flowers are in full bloom. This means getting to leave those jackets behind and showing off what makes your outfit truly unique. This Fashionista keeps it classic, but adds a bold statement to draw attention to her best asset… her necklace, of course!

So where do we begin? Let’s start with the basics: the dress. Although accessories are important (and bring some of the best details), we have to find clothes to accessorize! This Fashionista’s dress flatters her body shape and the color pops against her tan complexion. A shift dress isn’t for everybody, but this Fashionista looks amazing and prepared for the scorching summer weather. Whatever style you rock, remember simplicity goes a long way! Her two-toned blue dress allows her necklace to be the center of attention.

Now for the detail that we’ve been waiting for… the flower necklace you can’t stop staring at. I was drawn to this Fashionista’s blend of colors. The pink flowers bring a contrasting color to her outfit that works, and works well. I’ve seen tons of gaudy statement necklaces around in the past, but they are coming back (in a more everyday appropriate manner) loud and proud. This Fashionista’s necklace not only complements her neckline, but it provides a little sunshine, even if it is a bit gloomy in the background. But hey, that’s how flowers thrive, right? A piece of statement jewelry can really make or break an outfit, and this Fashionista nailed it!

Like I said, I was drawn to the necklace, but then fell in love with her shoe pairing… more flower details! Her white, crochet TOMS feature the tiniest floral details that bring this look full-circle. With her comfortable shoes and beautiful necklace, this Fashionista is ready for all that blooms this summer.

How To: There are so many ways to pull of a statement piece of jewelry, but the best way to make it pop is by keeping it simple like this Fashionista. Look for a simple, clean-cut dress to start. One color will go a long way. Add a necklace that complements the neckline, but make sure it’s big and vibrant. Finish off the look with some classic flats or heels and you’ve got this sophisticated look down. Keep your makeup and hair simple too, as it will put even more attention on that statement piece!
