Style of the day

White button down shirt (Club Monaco); V-neck sweater vest in Rhubarb (J Crew); Navy with chalk stripe pant (Tahari); Penelope mary jane heels (J Crew); loads of bracelets: navy enamel link bracelet (J Crew), faux pearl charm bracelet (Target); gold rope bracelet (ShopNBC); gold link and pearl layer necklace (TJ Maxx).

A couple of tips:

  • Without the notorious "3rd piece" (sweater vest) that adds texture and a pop of color, this outfit would be really boring, even with all the jewelry to accessorize.

  • I love, love, love white button-down shirts -- to give it some extra sassy, I usually roll the sleeves and pop the collar in the back. I know you might feel self-conscious at first, but don't worry! You CAN pull this off -- believability is a matter of self-confidence. Bring some swagger to the look -- if you believe in it, everyone else will too.
