From Simple to Stunning: Details Make the Difference
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

How do you turn a simple outfit into something extraordinary?  It’s all in the details.  We love basics with a twist - the white button down with tuxedo pleats, the coat with oversized buttons, the pants adorned with an oversized bow.  The beauty of these pieces is that they’re simple and understated - yet they pack a fashion punch, especially when combined.  Here’s how to get a stunning look from these basics with a twist:

1.  Start with a tuxedo pleated white button down shirt.  Pair the tuxedo shirt with a pair of drapey trousers adorned with a bow.
2.  Layer on a vest.  We love that the black sweatervest features a variety of textures - from the simple knit to the lace detailing. 
3.  On top, pull on an Audrey Hepburn-esque 3/4 length coat.  We love the scalloped detailing and the oversized, contrast buttons.
4.  Finish off the look with a pair of ankle boots, adorned with zig zag detailing and a buckle at the ankle.

What are your favorite fashion details?  Bows?  Oversized buttons?  Pleats?  Share your style with us in the comments!

    I love punky details – pyramid studs, chains, rivets.

    I love absolutely everything about this outfit. The bow on the pants, the details of the coat, the ruffles, and ridiculously cute shoes…

    I love buttons, ruffles, tuxedo pleating and even the occasional flower detail but when it comes to bows there’s a fine line between lady-like and ridiculous so I tend to avoid them!

    I like some bows. I often use a thick piece of black grosgrain ribbon to cinch my waist, especially over cardigans.

    This is a very nice outfit

    Hey I checked the polyvore of this outfit you posted and I think you got the price on the H&M shoes wrong – I don’t think H&M sells anything above $100, and you put the prize of the shoes at $664.
    Other than that the outfit’s really cute!
