I was flipping through March’s issue of Lucky magazine with Heidi Klum on the cover & came across an ad for The Limited’s new spring collection featuring this dress. I’m all about the polka dots, but while I’m on a post-vacation budget, I need to focus on buying only the necessities, or perhaps items that come from scoring really awesome deals. I like to put a price tag on these like finding something $10 or under that’s both fashionable & functional throughout the year, thus we have The Stylish Five.
The easiest items to pick out are always accessories. They’re so versatile & can really make the most basic black dress or t-shirt & jeans seem more luxurious. A cocktail ring like this one would look very mod against a hot pink dress, or serve nicely for a look with a lot of print or pattern. As for the pearl drop earrings, nothing says sophisticated glamour like pearls that can be worn with a maxi dress in the summer, or with your favorite tweed blazer. I love these textured tights, which really bring more dimension to your outfit if paired with something menswear-inspired. As for the tops, the snowflake tee may seem a little bit on the novelty side, but with the right pair of leggings, a chunky scarf, & leather jacket, it’s your go-to sparkle piece. The tunic is in a rich ‘Gosford Pink’ & totally appropriate for so many occasions. The jewel tone is one of the colors of the upcoming season. Try it with a flyaway cardigan & ballet flats for an uber-comfortable casual day out & about. Happy Styling!
