We believe to any look, accessories are the best way to go depending on the aesthetic you are leaning towards. Some of our personal tips to create an ensemble is to know your body type and what you find personally to be flattering on your body and to yourself. A crop top is the best way forward and a safe option to pair with almost all skirts. But if you want a classic, chic, and elegant look, a sophisticated blouse would pair well with a pencil skirt. For mini skirts and shorts, our personal preference during the summer is a linen shirt to keep it casual and light, but to amp it up, a fun graphic tee would also accentuate your look and give you a subtle punk look. Our absolute favorites are leather shorts and skirts to style, the trick with styling a leather outfit is to let the leather or faux leather shorts or skorts be the hero. We recommend you go with minimal jewelry and other accessories so that the fit remains the main objective of your styling. The best part of a simplistic outfit is that it can always be elevated with some jewelry pieces, a fancy bag, and some intriguing footwear. This also helps in transition outfits where you keep it casual and semi-casual at work with the basics, and later amp it up with some added jewelry and a fancy bag!
