I'm a firm believer in the "less is more" concept - especially when it comes to styling. More often than not, keeping a look simple is the biggest favor you can give yourself in terms of fashion and styling. Because then, YOU are always the focus, and your outfit complements you, rather than the other way around! For this look I decided to go back to basics, in a sense - no patterns, no beaded textures. I went with more classic pieces and cuts that will ALWAYS work and be on trend, so they are pieces you can keep in your closet seemingly forever :) For my top I'm wearing a structured, bandage, strapless top with a sweetheart neckline. Sweetheart necklines are my favorite, and they are the ultimate in terms of classic, feminine cuts :) I'm wearing a high-waisted skater skirt with it since it focuses attention towards the waist for a more flattering fit. Toss on a pair of sheer tights and black pumps, and you have an evening outfit that can be worn for a plethora of events! This would also be a great look to wear a statement lip color with, such as a bold burgandy or deep berry ;) And you can easily wear your hair down, or up in a bun or even a ponytail with this look for added versatility!
