The Kooples Lace Top -- this blouse is confident and sexy, and I'm a sucker for a cute bow.
Zara Lace Top -- this version with a boxier shape is a bit more relaxed and seems easy to dress up or down.
H&M Lace Blouse -- navy blue is a bit unexpected, but still super pretty.
Maje Troy Lace Blouse -- the pattern of the lace is a bit swirlier than most ("swirlier" is the official fashion term, btw). This top is so sweet and innocent if worn with a camisole, and a bit naughtier with just a bra (I'm thinking black, or maybe neon pink).
Putting together outfits around these pretty blouses is so easy. Let's take a look...
Right now, I'd pair this bow blouse with a cute tweed skirt and chunky loafers (these are from Target - so great, right?). Simple, delicate gold jewelry adds a finishing touch. This is an easy top to dress up for evenings with a velvet blazer, skinny jeans, and heels. And why not add a little sparkle -- maybe with a few rings and a bag.
6. Cool Necklace
Splurging on a great necklace this season is a great way to stretch your wardrobe. An eye-grabbing necklace can be a lifesaver on lazy days (magically transforming your dress or jeans/tee into an outfit), and it can help you add new life into some of the older pieces in your wardrobe. Some good ones to consider:
Bauble Bar Jurassic Collar -- I love the size of this piece, and I can never get enough of a tortoise shell pattern.
Fairchild Baldwin Bella Necklace -- a bold pop of color (and super flattering right around your face).
Stella and Dot Utopia Necklace -- we've discussed this necklace before, and I'm still pretty smitten. Think about your wardrobe -- if you favor shades of blue and green or neutrals like black and white, this could be a smart buy.
H&M Short Necklace -- you don't have to drop a ton of money to get a pretty piece. This simple H&M bib is just the right amount of statement for just the right amount of cash.
Sometimes when I'm in need of wardrobe inspiration, I build my look around a favorite piece of jewelry:
This outfit is basically fifty shades of beige, but when you add that necklace, boom. You can pull together some of your favorite summer pieces and turn them into a fall look with a trench coat and necklace. A bold piece of jewelry also works with a strong graphic look -- it would really pop against a striped dress and blazer. Easy, pulled together dressing (no matter how many times you hit snooze).
