Some say fashion holds the power to inspire, empower and celebrate women. Fashion is also cyclical and we are all currently traveling back in time for a 70’s revival thanks to major fashion designers around the world.
In case you missed out on some of your high school style trends, you’ve been given a second chance to embrace some pretty groovy pieces and styles.
VELVET is the trend of which I speak my friends, and it makes me want to revisit the Farrah Fawcett feathered hair do of my youth. Shout out if you ever wore the feathered hair look (comments section below post).
Speaking of throw-back trends, I do love me some velvet, it’s such a rich and classic fabric, which has clearly stood the test of time. Since it’s such a star on today’s fashion scene, I decided to put together a look that flirts with expensive, without taking an ugly bite out of my Ted Baker wallet.
What’s the styling secret to pulling off an elegant, trending velvet look that won’t break the bank? Combine affordable pieces sprinkled with a few higher-end pieces for a sophisticated look.
For this look, I started with a ridiculously affordable (#TargetStyle) crushed velvet jumpsuit in vibrant cranberry, and layered it with a faux leather jacket. To accessorize the outfit, I added a pair of suede booties with stud detailing and sprinkled an extra dose of velvet with my handbag. To elevate and create the illusion of an expensive outfit, I accessorized it with an elegant faux pearl and crystal statement necklace.
Total Outfit Price: Under $400.00)!
You don’t have to spend big bucks to look like a million, darlings.
I whispered a few fashion tips into the ear of Greenville’s Dr. Charles Hard Towne’s ear and he took note (of course, I’m kidding).
