1) Mix textures
Nothing instantly elevates an outfit like mixing together different textures – think tweed, silk, fringe & crochet. This white lace top is the perfect counterpoint to a structured skirt and the contrast of these materials creates a sophisticated luxe look (even though both pieces are affordably priced!). Other combinations to try are this striped sweater (love the detail in back!) with this scalloped skirt or this ruffled top with this mesh midi skirt.

2) Personalize it
Getting creative with the way you style your separates injects your personality into the look & it’s a great way to “make it your own”. This striped off-the-shoulder top is sure to be a spring classic & looks chic worn as is. But, I decided to roll up the sleeves & knot it at the waist to add a little bit of flair. I’d also wear this tucked into a denim skirt with simple sandals & a pastel neck scarf.
3) Try out trends
Adding of-the-moment footwear completes your look – don’t be afraid to venture away from the classic pump & try something new. Instead, opt for a metallic block heel (these go with everything), fringe suede sandals (so comfortable!) or a sleek neutral slide.

Sizing tip: I found that I needed to go down a size from what I normally wear to get a perfect fit for all of these pieces. The good news is that almost everything here also comes in petite + they offer free shipping and returns so you can order multiple sizes if you’re in between & simply send back what doesn’t fit.
