Well, this turned out unexpectedly Parisian… But regardless of the elaborate location choices, the look is quite simple. I, however, received a bunch of compliments on this outfit despite it’s simplicity. The secret recipe is always the same – bright colors and texture! What turns heads in this case is the brightness of the fuchsia skirt and the faux leather/fur texture of the vest. Everything else in the outfit just supports the “key players”.
One tip to remember: not everything in your wardrobe needs to be unique, expensive or of outstanding quality. It only takes one or two “hero” pieces to pull the whole outfit together and make it look sophisticated. And that’s exactly how you achieve elegance!
