Have you ever felt that something was not quite right about your outfit, but you couldn’t put your finger on the problem? Small details add up to create a pleasing overall look. Let’s concentrate on a few of those points in my very casual outfit to run errands on Tuesday.
Note that I let the bold necklace stand alone. The earrings, watch, and ring are barely noticeable.
The shorter fitted charcoal gray sweater makes the long cardigan more attractive. Even the suggestion of a waistline improves the proportions to help me look taller and more slender. A slightly fitted shorter first layer also makes the wide-leg jeans flattering. If I had worn a first layer that was also long and loose, I would have looked sloppy.
I often mention how important it is to harmonize your lip color with your top. For example, I am careful not to wear red lipstick with a burgundy top. My lip color today is Plum: True Berry here. The skincare routine I use every day is here.
If you have a generous bust, wearing a long necklace can bring too much attention where you don’t want it. The most flattering length lands mid-way between my collarbones and the fullest part of the bust. I avoid shorter necklaces since I have a full face, but when I wear a longer one, I try to make sure the pendant falls a few inches below the fullest part of the bust.
I bought this new necklace style from Beauty in Stone Jewelry as soon as I saw it. I appreciate beautiful things I can enjoy wearing dressed up or down. My necklace is the twenty-two-inch style, but the easy-to-use gate clasp can also be hooked into any link to adjust the length shorter.
I purchased the burnished silver necklace here, but look around on the site. There are mixed metal and gold-tone versions as well. In addition, Suzanne is kind enough to let me offer you a discount when you use my link. (The code SAS10 gets you $10 off any one item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.)
(Photo added 01-07-2022) I love the necklace so much I’m wearing it for the third time this week.
