Simply Graceful

Alice & Olivia Top + Ann Taylor Necklace

Choosing the right jewelry for an outfit is as important as combining the pieces that will make up the ensemble. The right accessories can transform a simple outfit into a head-turning one, and the wrong accessories can accomplish the opposite. My favorite jewelry includes necklaces, earrings, and bracelets; seldom do I wear rings. This year, I have embraced simplicity by wearing a single, delicate necklace or bracelet that adds a little sparkle.

Last weekend, I wore a black and white outfit made distinctive by its top (now on sale!) and accessories. I like this sleeveless top very much because of its airy design and leather-trimmed neckline (unfortunately, the pictures don’t show this latter detail clearly!). This top is so delicate that it perfectly combines with a ‘barely-there’ long necklace and a skinny cuff. I end today’s post with some spot-on advice from Coco Chanel: “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”

Thank you very much for reading.

Have a great weekend!
