ALL IN THE DETAILS: Laced Up and Loaded

One of the most eye-catching details on any item for me these days are lace-ups. Whether it’s a pair of shoes, a top or even a bag, I’ve got to have it if it laces up. That’s why when a friend showed me this to-die-for jumpsuit she snagged in Europe, I jumped on the opportunity to photograph it. The lacing may seem like such a small part of this outfit, but it’s a flirty detail that, when paired with other small pieces, is not only functional, but also super fun.

This Fashionista took this versatile wide-legged jumpsuit and paired the perfect accessories with it for a chic, polished look. The multi-directional stripes on the jumpsuit add shape and are a modern take on a traditional pinstripe. With pockets and a keyhole in the front, there’s no way for this piece to look boring. The bright pink earrings and a matching bold lip color is a look that can be used in any outfit, and the colors really pop when paired with dark neutrals. These laser-cut, chunky heeled shoes add an edgy element when compared to the romantic look of the gold bracelets.

When it comes to details, you can never go wrong with a few classic accessories, patterns or colors to simply tie a look together. Grab a piece like this jumpsuit though, and you’ve got endless opportunity to create a look that is comparable to a ready-to-wear runway feature.

Want to take this look in a different direction? Try a pair of flat sandals, a serious stack of arm candy and a colorful tote for a more relaxed, on-the-go look. Whatever your style, have fun, and wear it confidently.
