How do you spruce up an otherwise basic outfit? Leopard print shoes and a statement necklace of course! Ditch your everyday heels for a bold downtown-inspired shoe. It's ok to be a little showy with your look. Don't be afraid to mix bold prints with statement jewelry. Just make sure the base of your outfit is a solid color, like this cranberry fit and flare by ASTR. This dress is so comfortable, I could live in it! To help you strut your stuff this fall in the most high fashion way possible, I put together some styling tricks below:
1- Mix a casual piece, such as a chambray top, with a glam statement item. The secret is to only wear one sparkle piece at a time. No need to pile on the arm jewelry if you're wearing a big necklace.
2-Slip into faux leather leggings. Leather leggings add an unexpected touch of glam. Pair with a plaid top to balance out the look.
3- Experiment with nail art. No more beach days = the perfect time to get creative with your manicure. A chic nail design can act as an ultra luxe accessory!
4-Bust out the fur (faux, of course!). A form-fitting fur vest is the perfect way to dress up a look. I love wearing them over a simple tee with ankle booties.
5-Slip into a printed sneaker. They add a burst of color to any outfit, plus you can still be dressy without the "ouch" of heels!
What pieces are you looking forward to wearing this fall?
