Lookbook: Accessorize Classics


Even if your a classic dresser, you don’t have to let your look get boring. Keep your look modern and fashion forward by setting trends with your accessories. A dramatic layer necklace or earrings (pick one) will transform a simple dress from dull to a do in half a second. A higher neckline sets the perfect stage for this heavily layered look. If Jean casual is your style, I really liked this mix. The look is monochromatic in rich darker tones. The blouse is tucked into jeans or slacks with a belt for a figure flattering silhouette and a long single pendant has been added for a touch of interest. This look is perfect for every day, lunches, or weekends. Add flats for a casual feel and heels to dress it up.

Black and white polka-dots rarely look bad. In fact, this this a super sexy date look and will be the hit of your next party. If the dress is simple, you can add a fun colorful shoe but if the dress is complicated, keep it classic with a high heel in solid black or stunning black lace. The key to dots is to keep the accessories simple. Dots are a statement all on their own. The purple dress works for business or fun if worn in a simple classic shift dress. For work you can add a jacket but don’t miss out on the accessories. It’s the perfect opportunity to show your unique style with pearls, a long layer necklace or dramatic crystals. You may even want to toss tour hair up and wear a statement earring in a contrasting color.

Brighten up your style with a bold skirt and belt. A feminine white blouse adds a romantic twist to this edgy skirt. Keep it modern by wearing the flowered buckle to the side. A beaded layer necklace adds a little extra charm to the style. A jacket or cardigan can also be added for a more professional look. This look works for a day at the office, luncheon, or dinner during the week.
