Spring is a busy season. Most people have busy weekends packed with graduation ceremonies, birthday parties and road trips. Sometimes it can be stressful to create an outfit so that you are projecting your most confident self. Simple style is made easy by building your wardrobe with foundational pieces, like well fitting black pants. Make your outfit pop with simple bold accessories.
Here's an easy way to use American-made fashion pieces to dress up simple black pants so that you're ready for any occasion!
* Select a statement necklace and accessories to complement it. When you walk in the room everyone will be complimenting your great accessories! Try these David Aubrey marigold colored pieces, made in the USA, from simplysoles.com.
* Add bright and simple accessories that make your outfit pop. You don't have to select pieces that are in a set; add pieces that have varied textures. I like this leather wrap watch from La Mer Collection.
* Pick comfortable shoes made in the USA that you can wear from day to night and the next day too! It's best to pick shoes that complement your accessories. I love Oka-b ballet flats; they are feel like they were made just for you!
* Pair your simple black pants with a top that flatters your figure. I suggest a wrap top blouse, like this one from Presenza, made in Texas. The top hits at the high waist, showing off your smallest part. You'll look good both entering and leaving the room with details on the shirt's back including shirring to hide any “back fat” and a scalloped shirt tail.
