Today I give you my advice for FRILLING up an every day look, using one of my basic closet essentials: the J Crew Tippy Sweater (get one, no two or three if you haven’t already). I mention the sweater because I want to prepare you for the many future posts that will be including it. What a palette! What function and versatility! The definition of frilling, I’m telling you.
I paired the sweater with this Banana Republic lace skirt, tights, and my Clarks Indigo mary janes. Fine enough I guess. But what do I do when I want to frill up an ordinary, just sufficient look?
- Add some jewels. A great bangle, layered bracelets or a statement necklace. Because I’m still pondering my wishlist for the perfect bib necklace via Baublebar, I layered 3 or 4 pearl necklaces here, along with my favorite chunky ring from Circle & Square.
- Frill up your accessories. I switched out the boring black tights for some of these navy and black polka dot ones. Love, love, love.
- Add some funky shoes. I love my Clarks mary jane-esque shoes, but I was going for something different here. So, I switched them out for my Clarks Heath Wren booties for a more current look.
- Finally, add red lips. Always add red lips. I am coming up on my one year anniversary of the realization (thanks Fran!) that I can totally rock red lips. I am now convinced anyone can. Here I’m wearing Russian Red by MAC.
**What I should have done to complete this fab look was add a top-knot. Next time!
