Today I am helping solve that age old question that causes so much pain and heartache every time an event* comes around: What am I going to wear??
Whenever I get ready for an event I generally start by choosing one statement piece. Be it shoes, a bag, a jacket or in this case, a top, I find that by picking one item with a bit of ‘wow’ factor, the rest of the outfit can be kept simple… in turn making it easier to co-ordinate! You may even be able to get away with jeans, if your top/bag/jacket is fancy enough!
The cut and attention to detail on this Finders Keepers crop make it a real stand out piece, so I chose to work my outfit around it, on this occasion. Teamed with a simple white midi skirt and with my favourite (and what some people may call statement heels, but I wear them so often they are ‘normal’ to me ) lace up heels. I added a muted leopard clutch to provide another interesting element. Be careful not to go too overboard with adding accessories or other statement items though, one focus point is enough!
I am heading out to a preview movie screening tonight so let’s hope I can take my own advice and getting ready should be a breeze!
* This can sometimes be a general everyday issue too, like this morning for instance when it was so cold I couldn’t find anything warm enough to wear… but we will just focus on those special occasions for now!!
