Look 1 : 20’s nude

My first impression of this set of pleaded top and shorts was a hint of 20’s flapper with a 80’s color glitter texture. This outfit will work perfectly for a weekend brunch or day you just want to stand out from the crowd.

Styling Tips

  • Since this 2 piece set is rich in color and texture, I have toned it down with a nude tote and kitten heel to balance it out
  • You want to lighten up the look instead of making it darker, keep in mind it’s for daytime
  • To add in one more 20’s element, a boater hat will to the trick
  • A touch of red earring to complete the overall daytime glam

Look 2: Garden Refreshment

A dash of contrasting colors will give this glitter look a fresh new vibe. You can try tucking in your top and create a sporty romper look for a day outdoor adventure.

Styling Tips:

  • A pair of color sneakers adds a youthful touch to darker tones
  • Go for a playful bag and necklace for this, I suggest to stick with 2 colors to avoid over styling it
  • Simply tuck in the top and define waist with a lighter color belt ( this will work best on same print set)
  • I would keep the bag and shoes in similar color tones for a cohesive effect
