Fashion, Outfit of the Day

Not Just Jeans and a Top

I have never been very good at “throwing on” an outfit. To me, coordinating an ensemble takes a lot of thought and consideration. After many years of arriving fashionably late (literally and figuratively) one too many times, I’ve finally figured it out! Here is what it takes to throw together a look without sacrificing your fabulous style.

Begin with a solid colored blouse. Rather than gravitating towards white or black, stick to a neutral, but go for something slightly more interesting like beige, ivory, or blush (as seen below). If possible, make it a neutral with a twist. As you can see, this blush top features white piping down the sides and a surplice back.

After that, adorn yourself in a printed scarf. I’ve said it once and I’m saying it again, transform a bland outfit into a fashion masterpiece in a matter of seconds with a fab scarf. For this look, I chose a geometric and leopard printed scarf – it did just the trick.

Now on to the denim…pair your top and scarf with embellished jeans. Stonewashed denim, coated denim, or distressed denim will work the best. While I am a huge fan of colored denim, it might become too time consuming matching your skinnies with your scarf. For this occasion, I chose dark blue distressed jeans. The color accentuated the blue in the scarf, while the rips added a touch of drama.

Finally, because it is a sin in my house to leave without accessories, grab your everyday earrings, stack some rings, and off you go, fashionable and punctual!
