I love fashion and trends, but at the end of the day I find myself buying more classic pieces. There is something to be said about an article of clothing that is timeless. I usually like to pair these classic pieces with something trendy, feminine, or something that makes a statement. Doing this puts a modern spin on a classic and changes a look from drab to fab.
Today I am showing a classic navy look that could otherwise be boring but I jazzed it up. Combining a classic navy skirt with a polka dot blouse, statement pearl necklace, and red heels. It amazes me how drastically a colored pair of heels can change an outfit.
My top 5 suggestions to take classics to the next level:
- Add a statement necklace
- Add a colored or printed heel
- Pair a fun handbag with a crazy shape or color (or both)
- Mix a pattern with a monochromatic look
- Add texture
For the more classic ladies out there, you can still look fabulous even if you are not crazy about the trends of the season. The fun thing about doing this is that you don’t have to go out and buy a new wardrobe, you can buy one piece that changes it all. After all, Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn are two icons that did just this, and to this day, are known for the fashion that they inspired!
