fashion friday: class acts – on the wild side

Timeless looks that will always stay classy are fab, but adding a little flair to these stream-lined looks is even better. In today’s world of style, almost anything goes, so if you want a pulled-together look, yet can’t imagine being too stuffy to throw on eight bangles, then you’re in luck. The following images show just a few examples of how polish and pizzazz go hand-in-hand.

This first look, from sidewalkready.com, is a fun office look. Pairing a colored herringbone skirt with a lace top is a good first step towards boldness, if mixing prints and patterns isn’t your thing. Then, even though the look is very clean, you can go crazy with accessories.

This sheinside blouse is your traditional button-up, but with a modern-day twist I’m obsessed with. The seductive sheerness, the care-free flowiness…and those pockets! Thrown over some black skinny jeans, this bright buy would scream fashionista.

A new blog I’ve found, Remain Simple, has terrif ideas on how to take basic looks, like a chunky mustard sweater, and just combine a few simple twists and tricks. Ta-da! A super hot look, based solely on wooden bracelets. This tip can be added to almost any blah outfit, making your nine-to-five not so drab.

A current and fave celeb example of glamming up basics is Miss Emma Stone in Elie Saab. The tuxedo-style outfit is to die for, and with the pop of red, sparkles, and super low V, this is the definition of modern class.

Guys can join in on the trend, too – just look at supermodel David Gandy. At first glance, it seems he’s just wearing a white button-up, but then you notice that his jeans are slim-fitting, his jacket has a slight texture to it, and his accessories are something most Average Joes would not gravitate towards. Even implementing one of these looks into an outfit, boys, will definitely up your game!
