    img_8275-1Although, I consider my personal style to be classic, I often look for ways to add a little more personality to my looks, and one way that I try to do this, is by incorporating patterns and added design details into my outfits.  Adding classic patterns like checks, and feminine details like ruffles, definitely allows me to maintain my classic style, while also giving my look a more eye catching appeal.

    img_8280-1img_8276-1img_8285-1img_8277-1img_8283-1img_8278-1For this look, I paired my Zara Checked Frilled Top, with my Vegan Leather Pants.  I added my Banana Republic Strappy Peeptoe Bottie, and my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Quilted Affair bag as accessories.  I also carried and wore my Banana Republic Camel Coat to be covered for the chill in the air.  I love that this top has frilled details on the sleeves and hemline.  The details truly give this checked top a more striking visual appearance.  This top can be paired with a variety of bottoms, and I personally plan on wearing it with gray culottes, my black frayed jeans, and also a black pencil skirt for a more dressed outfit.  If your style is more clean and classic, and you are looking for ways to spice it up a little, in today’s “Style Guide,” I’m sharing a few tips to give your classic look a little stand out style.

    Style Guide:  Tips For Giving A Classic Look Stand Out Style

    Add A Pop Of Color – Adding a pop of color with an accessory will definitely take a simple classic look up a notch.

    Go For A Stand Out Shoe – Adding a stand out shoe will certainly add a little pizazz to a clean classic look 

    Pick Pieces With Detail – Classic pieces with a little added detail like a ruffle or beading will definitely enhance your overall look.

    Incorporate A Print Or Pattern – Adding a classic print like leopard or a classic pattern like check will surely infuse even more style into your outfit.
