You don’t have to be a lady who lunches to sport this prim & polished (yet effortlessly chic) look. What I love about this look is that it’s perfectly put together, yet it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Yes, it features a gorgeous tweed skirt - but that tweed skirt is paired with a military inspired smock shirt (and a pair of patterned sunglasses to boot!). Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a playful juxtaposition - an earthy, casual smock shirt with a proper tweed skirt in a neon green.
2. It’s winter - so wrap yourself up in a sweaterjacket (or a sweater and/or jacket).
3. To walk the fine line between effortless and polished, choose accessories that give a nod to each. Here, I’ve kept the shapes classic - but each accessory features a cheeky detail, from the pattern on the sunglasses to the bold color on the clutch to the colorblocking on the shoes.
How would you walk the line between effortless and polished? Share your style in the comments!
