Hello! When it comes to getting dressed, I tend to underestimate the style of lighter colors and gravitate towards darker colors. However, I do have a few pieces in my wardrobe that continue to remind me how chic lighter colors can actually be. And as a new year is almost upon us, I'm going to try to play around more with colors other than black. Now, I'm not saying that I'm breaking up my steady relationship with the color black but rather am exploring additional lighter colors as well.
For this look, I styled the look around this cream-colored dress. The bell sleeves, dainty lace texture and seventies silhouette of this dress make it an obvious favorite in my wardrobe. I layered a white, faux fur vest over top of the dress. The way that the different textures and slightly different colors of the two pieces interact has me falling in love. I decided to throw another cream-colored piece into the mix by slipping on this light-colored pair of chelsea boots. I wanted a pop of color so I threw on a pair of green socks with my chelsea boots and tights. I emphasized the green color of the socks with a bold green coat. A couple golden pieces of jewelry and classic tortoiseshell glasses pulled the look together.
