ALL IN THE DETAILS: Tickled Paisley

Sometimes putting together an entire outfit can be a daunting task. Starting with one piece of clothing rather than two can be a quick solution. By that, I mean to choose a dress to lay the foundation for the look. That resolves any issue over finding the right color jeans to match a cute blouse. The key to dressing up a dress is all in the details and this Fashionista is tickled paisley with the world of possibilities she has to accessorize.

I love incorporating my blue eyes into the overall color scheme of an outfit. This Fashionista went for hues of green and gray to match hers. She creates this look around the turquoise paisley pattern of the dress so that each accessory reflects its intricate pattern, right down to the color of her eye makeup and nail polish.

Statement necklaces dress up any look and this silver one is subtle enough to not take the focus away from the dress. In fact, all of the jewelry in this look contrasts against the paisley pattern and pops to make this Fashionista shine.

Tickled turquoise head to toe, even her black gladiator sandals are perfectly pieced together with this look. That is not just because black goes with everything. These sandals reflect the darker colors in the print of the dress and they also shine just as much as the rest of the outfit with the small studs interwoven on the straps.

Want a look like this to tickle your senses and make your eyes pop? Start with a simple-shaped dress, but pick a bold pattern. Lily Pulitzer is great for step number one in this outfit’s production. Pick one that reflects your eye or even your hair color. Construct the look around your dress by adding statement necklaces, chunky rings or even a shimmery nail polish. After all, bold dresses are the groundwork for outfits like this, but it’s up to the shoes, makeup and accessories to make your look pop, shimmer and shine!
