Instant Outfit

March 17, 2014
Sometimes you just want to look put together without a lot of thought.  The key is to have classic pieces at your disposal to remix your wardrobe.  It’s the genius behind pieces like a blazer, a white man’s shirt, a sheath dress or a great lip color — they can be the foundation of an instant outfit because you can just throw it on and look effortlessly chic.  Investing in quality classic items creates a multifunctional wardrobe because it makes good use of what you already have in your closet.  I’m a blazer hoarder.  I collect them in all types and colors because it’s my go to piece to sharpen any look– in this case it took a floral sundress and added an easy and colorful sophistication with it’s waterfall draping.

    Please note that you may want to order 1 size up from what you wear. I ordered the XL for a size 13 wearer, and it was a little small, but thankfully, we are still able to use the dress.

    I too love blazers. I think they can instantly improve any outfit for any occasion really 🙂 I love the colours in this post and how your lipstick matches the pink in the dress and accessories perfectly. Very beautiful 🙂

    The pink and turquoise are a gorgeous combo! I have a similar recipe for an “instant outfit”, except I’m a sucker for cardigans. And instead of lip color, I go for a statement necklace or earrings. I love dresses because they’re the perfect cheat. You don’t have to put together a top and bottom and then layer on to of that. It saves you a step and still looks feminine and thought-out.
