Every morning when I get dressed my natural instinct is to go for minimal and classic wardrobe pieces. I love the essential tee with denim look and I'm lucky that I work in Silicon Valley where that is acceptable office attire. But I realized that often times my look is too basic and I need to find ways to add interest, especially on off-duty days.
Essentials to Statements
In the past bold statement pieces used to intimidate me because I would worry about whether I could pull it off. But I have come to realize that it really just comes down to confidence and a little strategic styling. For my outfit in this style post, I took this ultra comfy lightweight top and teal Just USA denim and layered on two statement necklaces with varying lengths. I paired the bold Banana Republic Moroccan Bib Necklace with the colorful and dainty Nest Pretty Things layer necklace. The two necklaces complement each other with the shared tassel theme and together make an even bolder statement.
Day to Night
The great thing about adding some statement pieces to an outfit is that you can easily take the same basic clothing items and spruce them up for a night out after work. A quick change of shoes and accessories will give you a new energy boost and put you in the right frame of mind for socializing. If you're going out in the sunshine, a straw hat adds the perfect touch to complete a look, and of course offers vital sun protection.
