Getting dressed for our Wednesday lunch date is a real challenge during hot weather. One of my favorite styling tips is to add a third piece to look more polished, but finding a lightweight neutral third piece that can be dressed up or down and worn on the hottest of days is where the challenge comes.
This good looking popcorn jacket from Covered Perfectly can be worn with faded jeans and sandals or with heels, a silk top, and dressy pants. Don’t forget! When you buy two, you get the third top for free when you shop at Covered Perfectly.
I embrace the rule of three for accessories as well. The belt, the watch/bracelets combination, and a bold blingy ring were the magic combination of three here. Add a nice handbag in a color that complements what you are wearing or matches something else in your look such as the shoes or belt. I usually carry a small bag and wear heels when I know I am only going to a restaurant. Almost all of the jewelry I own is in tones of silver, but many of my shoes and bags are trimmed in gold. If I limit myself to only wearing shoes and bags with silver hardware, I wouldn’t have very many options, so I have learned to live with mixing gold and silver tones. My inverted triangle shaped body always looks best in heels, and my short waist always looks best in a low slung belt.
You can see from the image above that this fabric is very lightweight and airy. Pauline, the owner of Covered Perfectly, had this fabric woven, especially for this jacket.
The tank and the bag are from Express. The hook belt is from Chico’s. The winter white pants are from Fabrizio Gianni. The shoes are by Nine West from last year. I am wearing Sheer Lipstick in Scarlet from Beautycounter. The jacket was a gift from Covered Perfectly.
