3 Ways to Style…A Neon Scarf

A neon scarf is the simplest (and maybe most inexpensive) way I’m updating my spring wardrobe for the transition into summer. Pair it with other brights… or back to classic neutrals. Mix prints and have fun with it!

3 Ways to Style…A Cardigan (Without Looking Buttoned-up!)

I love cardigans. I probably own about ten in various colors (but at least three staple black ones). I’m lucky enough to work in a casual office where wearing a cardigan is absolutely acceptable, so I probably add one to my look at least three times a week. Generally, I dress fairly preppy, but I also try to deviate from the overly-preppy-kinda-buttoned-up look that cardigans can so easily give off. Below are three ways I style cardis without looking buttoned-up. Try adding bold patterns and prints, wearing a neon cardigan, or adding platform pumps. No girl looks uptight in a platform pump, right?

3 Ways to Style…Zig Zags & Stripes

3 Ways to Style...Zig Zags & Stripes

Bold stripes and zig zags is one of my favorite summer trends. I think Louis Vuitton and Kate Spade Saturday do it best: sleek 60s-inspired silhouettes, bold lines, and two simple colors.

In my opinion, if you’re going to wear this bold trend, you might as well go all out: mix patterns (yes! florals!), add pops of bright colors (neon is still in, you know), and try a sharp, simple silhouette to draw attention to the pattern.

3 Ways to Style…a Chambray Shirt

When I asked my sister what she thought was a difficult piece of clothing to style, I didn’t expect her to say a chambray shirt. To me, a chambray shirt is a go-to piece; it’s what I grab when I’m in a rush and want to keep my look polished but casual. But when I thought about it, I initially avoided buying a chambray shirt for a while, because, like my sister, I wasn’t exactly clear on how to style it. Can you wear it with jeans? How about a skirt? Below are three easy ways to incorporate a chambray shirt into your wardrobe. I bought mine at JCPenney for $19…so it’s worth the small investment for sure!
