Some days I can be a lazy dresser. And that’s OK for some days, as I am retired, I volunteer in a thrift store, and don’t represent any Famous Brands as I bike around town. On this day, though, I had some good starting material, and did not make it to home plate. Must accessorize.
The semi-sheer cotton top (similar) is recently thrifted, and I love the weight for Florida Spring. The suede ruffle-hem skirt (sim) is also thrifted and a nice quality piece by Chicos. They work together fine, but what do you think is needed to make this outfit an “A” instead of a “C+”?
Here are some ideas I came up with and I’d love hear if you have any. I don’t wear earrings often as my hair hides them, and I left out bracelets for this look, because the long sleeves would obscure them.
Neckerchief. A long scarf might work, but would interfere with the details on the blouse. So maybe a small silk square, knotted at the throat or back of the neck.
Multi long necklaces. A couple of chains, and or pendants would add interest to the blouse. Nothing too “statement”, just a feminine addition to the feminine blouse.
Lightweight patterned tights. This is my favorite tip for upgrading this outfit. A pair of tights like these would change up the whole look:
Leather peep-toe wedges. A medium heel would be flattering with this skirt, and showing one’s toes is always more fun.
