As with life, so too is it a good idea to keep a sense of balance about our wardrobe when we pair tops with bottoms, shoes with jewelry, and prints with solids. In today’s Style Inspiration, choosing a neutral or wardrobe staple and pairing it with a bold, unique or statement making print, top or texture, creates the perfect balance of simple with personality. After all, it only takes a subtle infusion of our signature style to communicate our confidence. In fact, too much can often simply be too much. Have a look at the outfits complied today and be sure to choose your favorite to be shopped next week.
Now last’s week’s choice by readers was quite quickly that of the chic and elegant polka skirt, and while Banana Republic still has the dress on sale, the skirt has been quickly sold-out. So I decided to turn the outfit on its head – polka dots on top, solids on the bottom. With a blouse priced well below one might expect and a black knee-length skirt that would serve as a wonderful staple year round, pair with feminine cat-eye sunnies, ankle strap heels and Anthropologie’s Mother-of-Pearl clutch for a sophisticated ensemble.
