Silver and gold

If you like neutral colors, metallics are a great alternative to try.

Golds can look very glamorous and silvers are a more subtle way to try these metallic trends. Sequins are a flashy way to wear metallics and look great on purses and jackets. Try gold or silver pumps when wearing jeans for a casual chic look. Here are five ways to style this metallic trend.

Silver accessories always look classy. Grungy rings like the ones below add an edgy look to your outfit.

Combining two or more bright colors is a fun way to to brighten an outfit especially around summertime. If you’re uneasy wearing too much color, try blending a neutral outfit with colorful  accessories like orange heels or a bright blue purse. Color blocking can de done to a dressy outfit, or kept casual for a fun weekend look.

This outfit features one of my favorite colors,bright and cheery yellow pumps, which can easily be paired with a bright blue top for a fun contrast. The off-the-shoulder top and peep-toe pumps add a fun and feminine flair, while the creased two-toned skinny jeans keep the look casual and relaxed.

How to wear lace tights

This weeks outfit revolves around lace tights.

Lace tights are a  pretty stylish accessory and can be paired with different outfits since they range in color and patterns. They’re great for windy weather, and some are thin enough to be worn around summertime. Pair them with a skirt, dress, long tunic, or shorts.

Depending on your work environment, you can wear these tights as long as the colors are muted and the pattern isn’t too crazy.

This outfit is pretty neutral with the exception of a pretty teal blouse. The khaki skirt looks great with the sheer thigh-high mesh tights as well as with the more vintage looking pattern tights on the right. The taupe sling-back heels polish up the look, and pull together a sophisticated and fun outfit.

For a casual look involving a neutral outfit, add a touch of color by pairing it with grey or burgundy lace tights. The green dress is perfect for a warm day and can be paired with either set of tights when there’s a summer breeze. The gold flats add a flirty, feminine look and are perfect when you’re going for comfortable chic.
