I have a few keys rules that I like to follow when I create an outfit and the number one rule I live by is balance. I think balance is key in pretty much any situation but especially when it comes to fashion. There are so many stunning pieces, bold colours and statement making accessories that it can be hard to ensure you don’t go overboard. My personal favourite way to keep everything in perspective is to choose 1 key piece that will be the focus of the outfit and if I decide to add accessories I prefer to keep them simple or have one big statement like an ear cuff or necklace.
This outfit is a perfect example! The lace skirt is a stunner all on its own with its flattering pencil shape and shorter slip so I wanted to pair it with pieces that wouldn’t detract from or overwhelm it. I chose a simple grey v-neck shirt and my classic leather jacket. The layers add interest without being too much and of course a red lip will always add a little bit of sparkle to any outfit.
