Happy Friday, everyone!
What are your plans for the weekend? The weather across the country looks pretty good so far, so let’s keep our fingers crossed that everyone enjoys a cool sunny weekend.
Today I am sharing how I took basic black pieces from my wardrobe–black designer jeans, a classic black crewneck top–and added an interesting cropped vest to turn it into a statement outfit.
I bought this cool cowl-neck vest in Northport, Michigan. (Yes, another Northern Michigan fashion find! Haha!) The designer for this unusual piece is Sun Kim, who turns out to be a California designer! You could shop a sold bronze version here, or look for the black and bronze version online.
How fun is this top?!! I loved the shape, with the uneven hem, color, and the collar, so just had to have it! The most interesting detail–the cowl neck collar has a wire for shaping, much like wired ribbon, so you can style it a number of ways. It feels so fun and futuristic!!
Because I was wearing it out to dinner, I added my black calf-hair heels. I love the way these Paige jeans look with heels–the uneven hem goes great with them, much like they do with almost any other shoe types. And the jeans are on sale right now! Check them out here! If you are looking for some soft yet flattering jeans, these are worth the price. Booties or even sneakers could look cute with this outfit with a simple backpack for a bag.
To tie in with the bronze tones in the vest, I am styling it with my bronze crossbody bag.
For jewelry, I am wearing my gold filigree earrings from Kendra Scott. Love them! A long statement necklace might look good as well, but it was difficult to style it with the collar, so I left it as is!
I know you all have lots of basic black in your closet, right? Take a pair of black slacks or jeans, any kind of black top, and add a vest or a sleeveless or other top that gives a pop of color or interest to the outfit. Be creative! Try something you haven’t tried before–you may be surprised. I know I was! It’s fun and easy to do. I would love to hear what you come up with!
