Happy Hump Day!
Today's post is yet another bold look featuring a combination of mixed patterns and punches of color. This would be the perfect option to wear to work; you could substitute the colorful heels with basic black pumps and add a solid black blazer to tone down the look, but I would personally wear it as is in the office :) I've been on the hunt for a statement layered necklace for a while now and the one's I've come across didn't offer enough detail and layers as I would've liked. So when I was presented with the opportunity to collaborate with Happiness Boutique and saw their selection of statement necklaces, I was floored! This, to me, is the perfect versatile statement necklace anyone can own. Why? It can dress up any basic tee and would look amazing gracing the collar of a basic white button-up! I loved how it looked with this striped tee because it fit perfectly within the neckline, yet had a bit of an overlap, which I really really loved!
Now I know that there are many of you out there that feel insecure about your wider hips and butt, and so you turn to black as a way to conceal what I feel you should really embrace! The way to embrace those bountiful curves is to create some dimension up top and this can be done quite easily using some very simple styling strategies. For one, when wearing a bold colored pant like the one I'm wearing, opt for additional color, white, or a striped tee (this will visually widen your upper body) to balance out the attention placed on the hips. To complete the look, add a statement necklace to once again create some interest to your upper body and to add some dimension, since most of yours will be in the hips and booty (ain't nothin' wrong with that honey)!
I hope this post was helpful and most of all, inspirational! Don't forget to check out Happiness Boutique for some awesome and affordable statement pieces!
