Living With Style
Discover Your Signature Look To Dazzle This Holiday Season
It's Not You What Wear, But How You Wear It
When you shop, it's not about reinventing the wheel; it's about adding great, go-to pieces to build on or refresh your wardrobe. Accessories are another way to have fun, and stores are stocked with a variety of options that you won't see again until this time next year. Be on the lookout for these eye-catching pieces that will add mileage to your staples:
· A conversation-worthy shoe in a pop of color
· A glam-gold clutch
· Sparkling drop earrings
· A stunning, chunky necklace
With the right accents and a hefty sense of style, no look is off limits. You can easily pair your nighttime accessories with your best daytime pieces—a very modern move indeed—and give new life to your office look. Now's the time to go for bold color, sensuous textures like lace and velvet, and unexpected pairings. Try working a killer evening boot with a chic pencil skirt or slipping on a gunmetal peep-toe platform pump to add a little dazzle to a navy sheath. Looking fresh and unexpected doesn't mean becoming someone else—it simply means being confident and creative.
