Ever splurge on that one must have item but wonder how to really do it justice without taking away from its awesomeness? Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your favorite statement pieces!
So I’ve been looking for some really great dress shorts for this summer-last night was my time. I found these awesome red J.Ferrar dress shorts at J.C.Penney of all places. So today I wanted to put together an outfit that would really showcase them well without distracting from their general splendor.
When it comes to really helping a piece stand out-it’s important that you can exercise restraint in the rest of your look. It was so tempting for me to accessorize with a million chain bracelets or I even thought about adding spiked combat boots-but ultimately I formed the look around the shorts so I simplified everything else. Rein in your inner fashionista a bit-I promise, you’ll thank me later.
It’s also really important to pick other colors that compliment your piece well. If your stand out piece is blue or turquoise, I would stick to cream or tan colors to compliment. If it’s red or oranges-greys. Greens and yellows look awesome with white. And purple? Well…I’m not a fan. I chose muted slate and grey items that really caused the red to “POP” and some chic gladiator sandals to bring together the look with a cohesive summer feel.
Happy dressing and have an awesome day!
