Double TakeBlair Eadie & Katie Sturino
WILD THING: THE ARIELLE DRESS
1. Don't be afraid to mix patterns, prints and textures. I am loving the way this silk leopard dress plays off of this metallic tweed blazer.
2. Statement stacks are back—and the neckline of this dress is begging for a collar or statement pendant…or better yet both.
3. Leopard is practically a neutral so go ahead and add a pop color by layering this piece with the Louisa jacket or the Miller.
There are several ways to wear leopard…you can make it the star or treat it as a neutral. Sometimes you want to wear leopard head-to-toe and I encourage you to embrace that, dear reader. Toss on leopard accessories to match, too! Just be sure to add one pop of color somewhere.
THINK PINK (BLAZERS): THE STEELE DICKEY JACKET
Just because it's fall doesn’t mean you have to tone down the color stories in your closet. A pink blazer should be styled with camel (like the Cormac pants), white, or my favorite… more pink! It is an easy way to bring bright vibes to fall.
1. I am all about an interesting, unexpected color combination so I paired this blush blazer back to a deep emerald dress.
2. Blazers aren't just for the office—dress them down with denim and don't be afraid to dress them up… like I did with this silk ruched dress.
3. More is more when it comes to accessorizing so don't be afraid to mix and match. I am loving the traditionally conservative pearls worn with a funky feather bag to make the look feel more modern.
CARGO LOVE: THE BEVERLY HIGH-RISE CARGO FLARE
1. These high-rise cargo jeans fit like a dream, so show off the waistline with a fitted top and a blazer that nips in at the waist.
2. To really elongate your body, wear these jeans with heels and a slimming turtleneck.
3. Stripes go with everything—especially plaids, tweeds and houndstooth. The more pattern play, the better.
I have yet to find a denim company that makes high-waisted jeans the way that Veronica beard does. My favorite way to wear them is with a shirt tucked in and a blazer over it!
