How to Make an Outfit Pop

December 11, 2017

I love this outfit. I’ve worn it in various iterations multiple times. Once exactly like this when we had some people over for dinner, once to church, and once to work with dressier black pants in favor of my jeans. It is essentially just a black and white outfit, but the details make it special.

My leopard booties are old, but remain a pair of shoes I reach for season after season. I highly recommend adding a leopard shoe to your wardrobe. I’ve linked a few similar options below. I snagged this sweater for $20 on Cyber Monday, score! It is currently on sale for $35.

How to Make an Outfit Pop

  1. Add statement accessories – My earrings easily steal the show.
  2. Consider a bold lip – I added a red lip to match my earrings.
  3. Think about a print – My leopard booties are the perfect pairing to this neutral outfit. You could also do a scarf or printed bag.
  4. Consider the details – Though this is just a cream sweater, the neckline and bow detail on the sleeves really makes it unique.
