Happy Monday, everyone!
Today I am styling a very basic look–one we all wear on many days when we don’t want to think too hard about what to wear. Am I right? A black top with jeans is a go-to look for most of us.
The top I’m styling is from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so is a very good buy. It’s a soft cotton fabric that should wash up nicely, too.
This is a flattering style as it tends to cover all in the waistline area! Love that!
While it is a very casual look, it is easy to add a few accessories to dress it up just a bit. Here I have added an animal-print clutch and cut patterned leather sandals. My earrings show a bit of animal print as well.
Wearing a basic black look is the perfect time to go a little dramatic on the makeup. While I don’t do too much of that, I do like to change things up with lipstick. And when you wear black, a red lipstick can really pop.
Here I am wearing a great shade of red from NARS. I have been wearing NARS Audacious lipsticks for about a year and love how long the lipstick lasts and doesn’t get cakey. While I normally wear a very neutral shade, I love their version of red which you can find here. This is a pinkish-red shade that goes with my skin. You may have to experiment to find the right shade for you, and NARS has lots of colors to choose from.
I hope you have a wonderful start to your week. I will continue to share and style some additional picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this week, so be sure to check back in tomorrow!
