I recently spent a couple of days home from work with a bad case of the sniffles (thank you, sinus infection!), but that didn’t stop me from curling up in bed with my laptop, in search of some great style inspiration! I meandered over to Madison Los Angeles, a website known for selling luxury brands like Alexander Wang, Bottega Veneta, Vivienne Westwood, & Halston Heritage.
I put together this super chic look for a professional or night affair. A jacket can do wonders, especially over such a bright & sparkly top- & here at Style Darling, we do not shy away from sparkle! The Sass & Bide By The River Tee ($192.00) can be mixed with any number of bottoms, including a pencil skirt, tucked into something denim, or worn with leggings & knee boots. For this look, I went with a dark wash J.Brand 10″ Tonal Jeans Dynamite pair ($192.00) because they’ll really allow for the top to pop! The Parker Cropped Jacket ($415.00) has enough flair to cover up the very loud top, but also created interesting proportions since it’s short than the top.
As far as accessories go, I love the look of the Matt Berson Grey Jardin Ankle Booties ($230.00). They’ll tuck the jeans in just enough & help elongate the legline. The Mulberry Alexa Bag ($1200.00) is the perfect hue to contrast all the neutrals going up against the glittery top, but also adds some more texture & it can hold all of your favorite daily necessities that you carry around! While you’re out & about, running from meeting to meeting or fittings to happy hour, the Elizabeth & James Lafayette Sunglasses in Tortoise ($158.00) make for an old Hollywood way to protect your eyes from the sun.
Since there’s already so much going on with this look in terms of shine, I picked subtle pieces of jewelry, including Jacquie Aiche Oxidized Starburst Studs in 14K Gold ($650.00). Whether your hair is up or down, these studs are just the right bit of polish to add some personality to the already posh duds. Lastly, Lucky Star Jewels ‘Ivana’ Stretch Ring ($70.00) is a gorgeous cocktail ring to wear for an after work affair, meeting with the girlfriends to chat about your day over martinis.
The total for this look comes to over $3100.00 (insert jaw-drop here), but pieces like a sparkly tee, dark wash skinny jeans, gray ankle boots, & a cropped jacket can be found for much, much less at stores like Kohl’s, Topshop, H&M, Avenue, Payless, & Forever21. Again, this category is just for the dreamers… We know this is out of our budget, but there’s nothing wrong with seeing what’s out there in the style world from which we can be inspired!
