We’ve gone over this before: I wear a lot of black. Accented mostly by white. Much the opposite of boring, I like to describe my style as classic — with a twist. When you build your wardrobe around these key colors and pretty basics, adding a little embellishment like a jeweled neckline, some sassy sequins, a girlish bow, a sparkly shoulder or a poufed seam, even the seemingly ordinary can become extraordinary.
It’s 25% style, 25% “the little things” and 50% how you carry yourself. And, bazinga: stylish, sparkly and sweet.
These pretty pieces from Zara are just the injection my wardrobe needs right now. With my career taking off, my closet looking empty and my eye for sparkle growing, I can’t seem to get away from these fancypants basics. Yes, I mean cool and chic. I’ve heard it both ways.
