This outfit may look like a shirt and a skirt but don’t be fooled. This is actually a maxi dress that I layered with a denim button-up and then tied for a finished edge. The dress can now double as a skirt and no one will know!┬áThis is a great way to take a maxi dress or skirt into fall.

As you know, my stance on jewelry is the more the merrier. I doubled up these two J.Crew statement necklaces to create something even more magnificent. Doubling up takes your jewelry collection further and creates unique pieces. When picking two items to layer, start with a common thread. These both have the same crystal gems in them. The black in the one necklace then adds a little more drama to the outfit. J.Crew jewelry in particular has great stackablility. If you look on the website or in the store, they have many pieces layers and doubled. I think the ability to not only put two different pieces together but also to pull it off with an outfit really shows others you have an eye for style.

Would you double up?

When people hear the word monochromatic, they think boring. That doesn’t have to be the case! This outfit mixes blush, magenta and fuchsia to make monochromatic magic. Monochromatic color palettes don’t always have to be the same shade of one color, popping a brighter version or two of the color generates a fresh look that will catch the eye. Accessories can also be used to add in multiple shades of one color. Mix with neutrals such as white and nude in the summer so the outfit looks vibrant and clean cut.

Monochromatic never looked so good.
