We went out for a friend's birthday on Saturday and I was so excited to try out a new trend for fall. Is it bad that I was secretly excited about the fall-like temps so I could wear a long sleeve shirt?! I've had this silk blouse hanging in my closet since the "back-to-school" fall lines came out in July. From a retail stand-point, I get why stores do it, but really? Fall in July? Hence my excitement when I could bust out a new outfit and finally cut the tags!
I went with this blush colored silk top and my skinny black pants. I LOVE my black skinnies. They truly compliment any closet and, ultimately, any body. I recommended them to my friend Beth when I "closet fashion fixed" her closet, and even she went out to find the perfect pair! (GAP sells a great pair for a good price point slim cropped pant ) Beth sent me a picture of them from the fitting room she was so excited!
To top off the outfit, I chose a pair of nude heels, cage style for an edgy look. The patent leather nude belt broke up the line; I tucked in the top in front only to show off the belt. With some large stone jewelry, my outfit was complete!
To keep a feminine top, such as a silky blouse, updated, pair it with some edgy extras.
Leave it untucked in back.
Add some leather.
Use some chunky jewelry to off set the feminine flair.
Cage-y shoes always do the trick!
Do you own a silk top? A feminine top? How will you update yours? Happy closet fixing!
