Fashion Friday: Effortless Style

One of my favorite boards on Pinterest is Stella & Dot’s Style Board. Our merchandising team puts together outfit inspirations using our jewelry and accessories, integrating them with the latest trends. For the blog, I like to find similar pieces for women who shop for clothes in size 12 and up. I think it’s more realistic for my readers, and it’s certainly my size range.

This week’s outfit inspiration is a classic look with a twist. Combining a shirt dress and fedora with shooties gives this simple outfit a modern edge. I love the necklace options – a locket and alphabet charm for a subdued look and the Eclipse Pendant for a bold statement.

It’s not easy to find dresses, tops, skirts, and pants that resemble the ones in the style board – shoes are a little easier to track down – but I have three great options for the darling light blue dress in the inspiration picture.

You can’t go wrong with a shirtdress. It’s tailored and feminine – love the tie belt – and you can wear it to the office if you work in a casual environment or to brunch on the weekends. It’s also a great dress to take on vacation because you can easily change the look with shoes and accessories.

Shooties are on trend again this spring. I admit, I didn’t love this style at first. They’ve grown on me, though, and I bought a pair of black ones in the fall. I am considering adding a tan pair to my wardrobe this summer.

I think these hats are really cute. Perfect for window shopping in a seaside town or for lounging at the pool.
