The challenge many women can face with high fashion statement pieces is cost. Once you have it, what do you do with it? Wear it only once? No! When you purchase high fashion or couture pieces, you are essentially investing in a quality piece. So, how do you dress up these pieces more than once without draining your bank account or sacrificing on style?
My solution has always been to go simple, classic, and elegant with basic 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 bomber jacket with pink trim. It is a unique, beautiful piece and perfect addition to any plus-size queen’s wardrobe.
For my first look, I went to my closet to find all 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 Lucite Heels, rose gold mirrored sunglasses, and a rose gold bangle set from Forever 21 accessories, it makes for an elegant and chic look.
For my second look, I paired the bomber with a white Sleeveless Bodysuit and Drawstring Pants in blush to create a chic yet casual look. I accessorized the look with a pink Satin Bow Choker and floral stud earrings.
Both looks, excluding the bomber, were obtained at a little over $100. That’s an amazing deal considering all the clothing, shoes, and accessories I was able to purchase. And, these basic pieces can be used to achieve many more looks.
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 brands like Forever 21.
