The right accessories can really make a look. By itself, this purple blouse and green skirt can run the gamut from mod to prim and proper - but with a set of ladylike accessories, the look reads firmly polished - with a sense of fun to boot. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with the base of the purple blouse and the green skirt - two blocks of color to anchor the look.
2. Wrap yourself in a polished winter coat - the variegated stripes give it visual interest without being too over the top.
3. Now, on to the accessories. Slip on a pair of nude pumps (we love the peep toe detail for a bit of cheekiness), grab a two toned clutch handbag, and then tie on a classic patterned scarf.
4. Lastly, add in a couple of key pieces for a bit of fun - a pair of faux fur earmuffs (adorable!) and a spiked ring (pretty, but not too precious).
