Style File: Show Some Shoulder
I wanted to continue my “Style File Series” with 2 simple switches you can make in literally seconds to change the look of your outfit.
As I mentioned in my first style file post, “Switch Up That Top,” I love outfits that not only look good but can reimagine a clothing piece you currently have hanging in your closet.
I focused this specific outfit around easy ways to change up the look of my top & bag.
Styling Idea #1:
The straight forward option. I call this the “Wear it like you see it” way.
Styling Idea #2:
For my 2nd styling choice, I pulled the sleeved portions of the my cold shoulder top down to my sides. This made the top look like a flowing cami. I also removed the strap from my bag to make it a clutch.
It’s simple style changes like these that can make your current wardrobe stretch further.
Top: Socialite Clothing ‘Cold Shoulder Peasant Top.‘ I linked the current pattern option available & it’s 60% off! I also think this one is so pretty & this plus size option looks so chic. If you love the olive green color (like I do,) I’ve linked a few more options here, here (at a steal) & here.There will also be some direct links at the bottom of the blog.
I think a cold shoulder top should definitely be a staple in every girl’s closet. Showing off your collarbones & shoulders is always a flattering & winning fashion choice in my book. I think they’re some of the most beautiful parts of a woman’s body.
These are such a good buy as we head into the summer season & they’re not going to break the bank either.
When I look at my entire jean collection & assess the vast variety of styles I’ve acquired over the years, I think I enjoy my “Fit & Flare” jeans the most. I have hips & they flatter them. I have absolutely no butt & flared jeans that are fitted on top (at your waistline,) make me look like I have more going on back there than I actually do. They also elongate your legs & wear so well overtime (meaning the more lived in they get, the better looking they become.) I enjoy jeans that accentuate what a woman has but also helps improve upon some of the areas we might not love quite as much.
This bag is the perfect size to carry all of your essentials & it comes in a variety of colors that are all stunning.
Earrings: Mr. Kate ‘Rain Earrings.’
Beautiful mixed metal earrings that are a staple for date night but not so fancy that you can’t wear them during the day.
By now you’ve heard me go on & on about Mr. Kate so I will spare you but I will say if you like funky & cool jewelry you will love her line.
Ring: Dogeared ‘Karma Ring‘ in sterling silver.
I have always been drawn to Dogeared’s jewelry because it’s so delicate & lightweight, not to mention affordable.
