Sometimes the most simple and classic outfit can be easily elevated by switching in some chic accessories! In this case, my outfit is made up of skinny jeans from Old Navy, a blazer and blouse from Forever 21 and some sunglasses from Target. During the day, I paired these items with ballet flats my black Hobo bag and then for an evening in LA a swapped in some thrifted Stuart Weitzman heels ($40!), a vintage beaded back and a vintage necklace! The best part about these “statement” accessories is that they look way more expensive than they are. I always think its worth perusing your local thrift or vintage store every now and then for the chance to score unique pieces that make an outfit stand out (and that don’t cost a fortune).
Additionally, wouldn’t this make a chic date night or Valentine’s day look?
I’m not really sure what to call this look – essentially it’s just an outfit I tried to put together when scanning my closet and looking for new ideas! Between the sequin shift, newsboy cap and skinny tie it has a bit of a mod/menswear feel to it (I think). Speaking of the skinny sequin tie, I’m pretty sure it came attached to a Target dress I long ago discarded (like maybe 5 years ago). I’m glad I kept it though because I use it as a scarf and a belt in so many of my outfits. I really wish I had worn my black chiffon blouse under the sequin shift instead of a tee but maybe I’ll remember next time! Also I lost my black aviators so I had to wear these burgundy ones – must head to Forever 21 for a new pair asap. This dress is clearly more of a tunic on me and way too short to wear bare legged or without leggings (in my opinion). It used to be a dress though – before I put it in the wash a thousand times when it was dry clean only. My bad. I linked some other dresses I think are cute below though!
