MIXING IT UP: 10 Items, 11 Looks

Posted December 7, 2012 by Baaba Grant-Acquah in Building Your Brand
With full schedules, end-of-year deadlines, and holiday parties, this time of year can get very busy. That’s why finding a great outfit shouldn’t be stressful and getting dressed should be effortless and fun. I’ve put together looks for the Career Girl that wants a little more direction this time of year on great outfit choices. Look at the guide below as a template to your current wardrobe and insert items into the looks. You can replace the items below with items in your own closet to mix &  match looks. For instance, if you have a striped sweater and a black & white pencil skirt, try wearing them together.  A bold colored bag and a bold colored coat will make you stand out in almost any outfit. I get asked a lot, “What items should I wear with  what?” or “I have a ______ and I’m looking for different ways to wear it, any suggestions?”  Check out the looks below for some suggestions, and don’t forget to personalize your outfits with accessories. Happy mixing!
