1 Piece, 3 Ways: Equipment Blouse

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Blouse
In case you haven’t heard, collared blouses are IN, and this topper from Equipment is simply lovely. Equipment blouses are no cheapie purchase (well, at least for a recent-grad with student loans and no money like me), so you’d want to get a lot of use out of it. Problem solved. I give you three totally different ways to wear this beautiful, bedazzled blouse. Take the first look on a date or to cocktails – add a jersey mini-skirt in THE color of the season and sexy leopard heels. Add a little extra bling with jewelry, but carry a simple envelope clutch to pull the whole look together. The second look can go just about anywhere. Slim, dark-wash jeans complement the silk blouse, while sturdy ankle booties and a parka are surprising and cool elements. Add a spotted circle bag because, well… I am obsessed with this bag. The third look can be worn to the office. Minimalism never goes out of style, so pair the blouse with a neutral pant and a classic black sweater. Black patent loafers, a carryall bag, and eyeglasses make this look practical and chic. The pocket-watch pendant adds whimsy to this polished look. What do you think? How would you wear this sparkly collared top?

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Floral maxi skirt

Maxi skirts are one of the greatest designs of all time… a bold statement, I know, but I stand by it. They are unbelievably comfortable, chic, and versatile. If you don’t own a maxi skirt, then I seriously recommend you sprint to your car, start her up, and go shopping for one. A cute, floral maxi skirt like the one shown here, is perfect for the months to come. Here I have offered three different ways to wear your maxi skirt, but the possibilities are truly endless.

The first look is spring-time casual. Throw a comfy, light sweater over your maxi skirt and add fun accessories like a bright colored bangle, leopard thong sandals, and a fedora. This look is perfect for class, shopping, or brunch. For the second look, I was inspired by the music festival style that is trending right now. Wear an unbuttoned denim shirt over this mix of floral patterns to pull them together, and keep the rest of the accessories neutral. To dress up the maxi skirt a bit, try wearing a silk tank in black, pretty drop earrings, and cool silver pumps. Which outfit is your favorite? And how do you like to style your maxi skirt?
