The other day I shared a pair of adorable Marc By Marc Jacobs sandals (oh, you missed it? Guess you should like my Facebook Page!). Well, I thought it would be fun to style an outfit around them. And now that I am in the sweltering climate that is Singapore (seriously, the little one and I will be going swimming here shortly to get a break from the heat!), I wanted to style a white hot look that could hold up in the most dramatic of temps.
Rebecca Minkoff “Quilt Mini Affair Bag” in Lilac
Free People “Lace Swing Dress” in Ivory
Alexis Bittar “Embellished Lucite Earrings”
Baublebar “Silver Fishbone Bracelet”
ToyWatch “Metallic Silver With Stones”
Marc by Marc Jacobs “Clean Metallic Wedge”
For me what keeps this look interesting is the variety of texture and surfaces- from the sleekness of the sandals to the lacy dress to the tough fishbone bracelet. Because there are so few elements (no layering here) it is important to make each piece count without feeling to weighty (like those earrings!). Also function is just as necessary as form when a look is more minimalist. A bag that adds color while holding the goods and a chic watch that looks good while keeping time.
Oh! And for those of you not living under an oppressive sun—how about a blazer to give the look a little structure?
What do you think of this white hot look? Are you craving warmer temps or hanging onto the cooler days?
