Have you ever wondered how to make a dramatic entrance? Blow them all away with a fantastic look that speaks volumes about your style? No? Oh, well, there is no time like the present to make a change.
To make a statement, we do not need to wear fancy labels or buy into the latest fashion trends to knock them off their feet. Nope. All we need is one bold statement piece that will take an outfit to a whole new level.
I am talking about pairing a fabulous dress, statement skirt, or a puff sleeve top with simple nude pumps, a neutral clutch, a simple pant, and a few accessories.
One of the most efficient ways to create a stylish look is to work with one striking garment. It has to be bold either in design, color, unique details, or cut. It has to stand out enough to be conspicuous. Once you have your garment, all you need is to add simple pieces to create a fantastic look.
As an example, let's say we have a fabulous summer top with puffed sleeves, a dramatic neckline, and a colorful pattern in baby blue color. The top has strong features, so we can style it with basics - a pair of boyfriend jeans or a mini skirt paired with neutral heels. Then I would add statement earrings with a simple necklace and a few stackable rings. And finish my look with a belt and a colorful clutch followed by a simple makeup.
My simple makeup routine involves a brow defining gel, mascara, and light pink lipstick.
If the above outfit scared you with too many steps and items, selecting a statement dress as a base can be another option. Find a dress that is bold, bright, has a bold pattern, o intricate details. Then all you need is a simple pair of pumps, clutch, jewelry, and bold lip stain. I would suggest adding a blazer for a bit of dimension and drama.
