We all know I’m a simple dresser. I mean, have you seen my hauls? I usually stick to a mix of basics, (There’s nothing wrong with that!) but sometimes I want to get more adventurous. Investing in statement pieces can feel like a huge risk and in the past I’ve made the mistake of making an impulse purchase that I end up never wearing.
Statement pieces aren’t for everyone. If you want to try them, you have to make them work for you, not against you. My biggest tip for keeping bold beauties from ending up in the back of your closet? Find classic silhouettes in bold prints and colors that you love.
A statement piece doesn’t need to be screaming over the rest of your outfit. I recently added a soft pink, faux suede duster to my closet and I can’t stop wearing it. The fit is clean and modern, but the pop of pink and texture elevate any basic outfit I’m wearing. Mine is most similar to this little Boohoo number and I usually throw it on with a basic white tee and light wash denim.
