3 Looks For Your Week
I've recently challenged myself to become more comfortable with the idea of high fashion pieces. Although I will always be an advocate for local shops and supporting small businesses, I wanted to begin incorporating runway pieces into my collection. I love how seamlessly they've fit into my everyday wardrobe and how they've encouraged me to be more adventurous in my styling. Here are three recent looks of mine, utilizing pieces from my favorite local brands as well as pieces from Rent The Runway. Highly recommending their Unlimited Package!
The star of this look was a Panel Mini Dress by David Koma. It was European sizing which threw me off at first (a size 4 is actually a size 10), but I got endless compliments on it. It was perfect for the transition from work to a happy hour birthday party that I went to afterwards. Style tip: If you're worried that a dress like this is too short for work, pair it with opaque tights like I did in this photo. You're also going to want to wear a blazer over it in the office, then leave that blazer in the car during happy hour!
I'd like to draw your attention to this amazing Chevron Tux Blazer by Laveer. The best thing about this blazer was the fit, perfect length at the waist and in the sleeves which teaches us that tailoring is so very important. I love to wear jeans on Fridays but sometimes I have meetings with clients and on those days I still want to look professional while also being comfortable. I didn't wear this to a happy hour event, but it could easily go from desk to cocktails. Style Tip: A great fitting blazer is a staple and if you don't have it in your closet yet, you should definitely add it to your arsenal!
Weekends are for having fun and taking risks and this Pink Ada Vest by Adrienne Landau is the epitome of both. This piece was so soft and so light that I was amazed at how much warmth it provided. Living in Ohio, I'm accustomed to layering up because you never know when to expect snow storms/rain clouds/heat waves and I like to be prepared. Style Tip: Use the weekend to ease into unique standout items. Pair them with a simple color scheme, like black and white, and keep the focus on that statement piece!
I'd love to hear from you guys!! What types of looks are you rocking this winter? Is there anything that you're having a difficult time styling and want to see done in a future post? Any looks that you'd recommend for me to add to my wardrobe? ~xo, Stacey
