Pair with a black sweater and tights. For a daytime date look, pair with black riding boots and for evening, slip into a metallic pump. The best part is that this skirt is light enough to be worn year-round so you can pull it out for the next June wedding you're invited to attend.
Add soft layers to any outfit that needs a little bit of pizzazz. It doesn't take a lot to make a big impact, so let the tiers speak for themselves and keep your accessories sparse and streamlined. Happy layering!
Winter is all about layering up-we put tees underneath our sweaters and cardigans over our dresses. But in the heavy layers, we forget about the delicate ones.
Today will be all about fun and flirty layers in unexpected pieces. Pair with clean lines and neutral colors for a fun and easy holiday look or for date night.
Wear with jeans and a winter white cardigan for a lunch out with your friends or tuck into a grey skirt for a chic work to evening look. Plus, this dot overlay top will find a whole new life this summer when paired with brightly colored shorts or cropped pants.
Everyone has a few oxfords in the back of their closet. Maybe you wear one regularly to work or perhaps it is only in there as part of your interviewing suit. But what about wearing one just because?
We were winding down our style session when my mom grabbed this striped oxford out of her closet and asked me to put an outfit together that "wasn't so preppy." To be honest, my first thought was, "Well, it's an oxford. Of course it is going to preppy." But I really don't like to admit defeat so I cheerfully agreed.
She bought this shirt because she loved the pattern of the stripe (which unfortunately my photography skills did not capture well) so I didn't want to cover it up. My first instinct with an oxford is to layer something over it, usually a v-neck pullover sweater, however that minimized the visibility of the pattern and was also deemed by my mom as "still pretty preppy."
I eventually ended up pairing the shirt with a pair of plum trousers and a moto-chic vest in a thick sweater material to bring in contrast both with color and with style. The outfit was not quite as casual as I had initially hoped, but it would be appropriate for dinner with friends or for a business casual events.
Other ways to wear oxfords:
-Wear untucked with a pair of skinny jeans and riding boots. Layer a brightly colored cami underneath and unbutton the oxford so it shows.
-Tuck a solid oxford into your favorite casual skirt and layer a striped sweater over it. Pair with tights and boots.
-Tuck into a colored pair of pants and accessorize with a metallic belt (worn through the belt loops.) Cuff the sleeves, add a sparkly necklace and slip into some comfy heels!
