Texture, pattern and color are three of my favorite details when it comes to my wardrobe. And these pieces check off all three in subtle ways.
Dresses are my go-to look in the summer, especially when the temperatures start to soar. This printed wrap dress from Ann Taylor is cool and comfortable. The spaghetti straps are perfect for an afternoon or evening out, but for work, I’d add a light jacket or cardigan.
To add more texture and pattern to the already colorful dress, I layered on the 1980s vintage cotton rope belt. The silver and gold metallic details give the outfit more interest without being overkill. I picked up this belt at the Mt Penn outlet for under $1.00. Belts are an easy way to change up your look by cinching in your waist or adding color or a touch of metallics.
The earrings make a statement all on their own, so I wanted to wear my hair up so they could have center stage. Their intricate gold cutwork pattern is unique without being heavy. A slouchy pink leather hobo bag by Etienne Aigner adds a pop of color and the neutral leather wedges by Naturalizer finish the look.
All of these subtle touches of color, texture and pattern add up to one simple, yet stylish look. And Goodwill makes it affordable to find unique pieces for a unique look.
