ALL IN THE DETAILS: Statement Pieces

July 31st, 2015 at 2:00am

Some days, sticking to a classic look is perfect. You can combine pieces that are already part of your wardrobe and the whole process of picking out an outfit is super easy. However, there are those days when you want to kick your classic look up a notch and a summer statement piece is just the right touch of glamour. Summer is the perfect season for rocking bright, bold pieces and quirky standout accessories.

This Fashionista uses a smart blend of wardrobe staples and wow-worthy accessories. By doing so, the focus of her outfit is her fabulous floral statement necklace and super stylish sunglasses. My favorite designer for fun and bold accessories will forever be Betsey Johnson. Her pieces add a whole lot of fun to any outfit. With hearts, skulls, seashells and blooming flowers, any Betsey Johnson accessory will turn a few heads. Opt for nautical or floral pieces in bright colors that add a touch of summer whimsy. Her tortoise shell sunglasses add an updated touch to a classic silhouette.

The basics of this outfit provide a simplistic backdrop for trendy, eye-catching accessories. Her elegant black shift dress is modest enough for a day at work, but cute enough for a night out. A sleeveless option in a lightweight material is a perfect option for summer. For a bit of extra coverage for night or a cooler day, a denim jacket gives a cool and casual vibe. She finishes the look with a braided thong sandal that gives a little touch of boho to her look.

How To: For a flawless combination of classic and bold, choose a breezy dress in a solid color for a simplistic foundation. Next, go for a statement accessory that packs serious punch to add complexity and detail to you look. Don’t be afraid to mix a few genres for a fun look that offers some variety!
