The Fall Effect
Summer's end is nearing and while fall is right around the corner, it seems the heat isn't letting up just yet! Mentally, we're over summer dressing and ready to transition to a more fall look but we have these gorgeous summer pieces we've invested in, and really we're not ready to give them up. This week's blog provides some inspiration for styling those happy summer pieces in a pre-fall state of mind, satisfying that desire for something a little different! As you scroll, feast your eyes on our nearly neon yellow silk tops, with pops of magenta anchored with black for a refined look!
Together black and yellow make the highest contrast color combination. The important thing to remember about wearing this duo is that it does require some confidence as all eyes will be on you! Yellow is a great way to add a little personality to your professional wardrobe. While typically yellow is seen as being cheerful it can also be a great way to take a power stance of not being afraid to take risks. Doesn't that sound like an amazing person to be like? Researching the color yellow made us want to wear yellow more!!
This week we are go over some styling tips for incorporating this sunshine shade into your wardrobe.
If you’re nervous about wearing such a bold pop of neon yellow, start with layering rather than going for the full head-to-toe look. Refined and sophisticated, this look is on trend while still incorporating very traditional pieces like an open front cardigan and a perfect black pencil skirt. A great look for the office, because while it's professional it's still very comfortable and easy to wear for hours and hours without having to readjust and
Add Magenta. What a powerful combination! Popping a magenta lip with the black and yellow ensemble adds that "something special" but take it a step further with a statement blazer in the same shade. The bold color blocking is such a statement, yet entirely timeless and classic.
Lean and Long! Look how the combination of this long tank and crop jacket, paired with leggings, lengthens and slims! We love using fashion tricks and optical illusions to our advantage and when the piece are a knock out already, it just doesn't get an better, does it?
A long necklace creates a visual breakup of this terrific two toned treat. It also adds more vertical lines, supplementing that slimming and lengthening illusion we are going for.
After seeing the yellow trend styled peeking through layers, we are ready to unveil this silk long sleeve raglan from Majestic. A slight slouch makes it a comfortable wear, but the silk fabric elevates the style from casual to dressy so it's simultaneously relaxed and polished. I love the smooth wide band at the bottom, thoughtfully designed to create a flattering shape and ensure perfect draping.
Curious to what lip color we are using in these looks? We love Marc Jacobs Lust for Lacquer lip glosses (210 BOOM BOOM) for a high impact, color-drenched look. Not gonna lie, the champagne infusion on a lip plumping gloss makes us happy!
