The challenge many face with high fashion statement pieces is incorporating that piece into your everyday wardrobe. Once you have it, what do you do with it? When you purchase a high fashion or couture piece, you are essentially investing in a quality piece. So, how do you dress up these pieces more than once?
My solution has always been to go simple yet chic with pieces you can find in your everyday wardrobe and pair them with a statement piece. Let that expensive signature piece stand out.
I was elated when I got the chance to style up this high fashion floral embroidered duster from Eleven60. The “Pinky Promise” A-Line Bomber is a sheer floral embroidered A-Line duster with pink trim. It is a unique, beautiful piece and perfect addition to any plus-size fashionista’s wardrobe.
For my first look, I went to my closet to find all shades of pink. I was specifically looking for blush pink or lighter shades of pink. I pulled a ribbed knit pink dress from Forever 21. The rose colored dress compliments the floral bomber perfectly. Combined with nude chunky heels, rose gold mirrored sunglasses, and a rose gold bangle set, it makes for an elegant and chic look.
For my second look, I paired the duster with a white sleeveless bodysuit and drawstring pants in blush to create a stylish yet casual look. I accessorized the look with a pink satin bow choker and floral stud earrings.
Both looks were achieved by styling the floral duster with items that were already in my wardrobe. Look for items in your closet that compliment your statement piece. I like to have a color scheme, which in this case was soft shades of pink paired with rose gold accents.
Being able to dress in the latest styles shouldn’t mean breaking the bank. Investment in high fashion pieces can be easily styled with everyday affordable, trendy, and basic pieces from items already in your wardrobe.
