I’m just like any other busy woman on the go that wants to look great but feel comfy without sacrificing style. So if you’re like me and are tempted by sweats when in a pinch, consider checking out these easy-to-wear tips to create an effortlessly stylish look when time is not on your side:
It’s All in the Details: When shopping, pay attention to little details in the pieces you buy (they can be a life saver and make anything pop). For example, try a cowl neck sweatshirt instead of a hoodie for a chic look; search for stripes to layer with a plaid shirt for a quirky touch; or give your outfit a little bit of attitude with these skinny Voi jeans from Bank (the biker details give the otherwise basic skinny jeans an edgy vibe and would look so sexy with a black blazer and favorite tee). Lastly, try one of this season’s hottest trends…colored skinnies (especially red; the color alone will do all the work).
Accessorize: And I don’t just mean earrings and a watch! Fall is here and one the easiest accessories to wear is a scarf (it instantly makes any outfit look classy). Don’t be afraid to pile on those bangles. Mix and match the metals and throw on a friendship-like bracelet to add a pop of color (for an instant touch of sexy use a studded bracelet). When it comes to bags keep them big, bold and structured.
Shoes: Break out of your comfort zone and swap out those sneaks and ballerina flats for a pair of lace up loafers or wedge boots to add a little spring to your step without sacrificing comfort.
Dresses and skirts: They are my favorite go-to items regardless of weather or occasion. The key is to buy ones that transition easy; and don’t scare yourself into thinking you’re over dressed. Another favorite trick is to match your maxi with a great pullover sweater and a pair of boots (to add a little masculinity). Also, reach in your closet, grab that denim skirt and wear it with tights, a turtleneck and flats..instantly chic!
