Sometimes you can create the most striking look by keeping your outfit simple….no fussy patterns, no elaborate details, minimal accessories, no pricey fabric – this cotton dress by Splendid is a perfect example, recently worn out to dinner with hubby…..another example goes back to the 80’s when Sharon Stone was a ‘wow’ at the Academy Awards wearing a black cotton mock turtleneck from the Gap! Do you remember?When you have a piece that makes a statement on its own, resist the temptation to add a bold necklace, giant earrings, or a scarf – believe me, it’s not easy for me to forego a scarf, but it would have changed this whole look! Simple hoop earrings, silver bracelets, Stuart Weitzman chunky heels…
Other benefits of ‘simple’ styling:
- Out the door faster! Throw on one or two pieces and off you go.
- Does not break the bank.
- Comfort – this soft cotton dress is heavenly!
- Shows a level of confidence that you can look nice without going overboard.
