It’s always nice when a popular trend sticks around long enough to become more readily accessible and affordable to the masses. I remember when statement necklaces became increasingly fashionable a few years ago and they were pretty pricey. Designs were dominated by high-end brands like Dannijo, Ben Amun, and Tim Binns but now the highly covetable closet staple can be found everywhere from Barney’s to Target. I have compiled a few of my favorite styles all for less than $100. Now you can truly start your summer off with a statement!
If I could dress my husband for our Valentine’s date night, that would be all the gift I would need. He has the perfect physique for me to have fun dressing up but he has his own style. He does well with his clothing choices I just would love to spice him up a little bit from time to time. Anyway, if you have the good fortune of dressing your man, here’s an example you can use to be inspired for Valentine’s Day outfit ideas. I love a dapper man so a bow tie is always fun. The bow tie is a statement within itself, so keep the print simple. A luxe blazer in an interesting color is a great way to switch up an ordinary outfit. A deep burgundy is a perfect color for Valentine’s without being too literal. It’s probably still pretty cool in the evenings in most places in the country so layering with a classic cardigan is a nice touch. A simple pair of trousers paired with sleek shoes and belt finish off the look. I hope this helps so no matter what you have planned for your special night, you won’t be able to take your eyes off of your handsome date.
Rihanna is just that chick that every woman wants to be and every man wants to you-know-what. We could all stand to read a page from her book of style. She’s a trendsetter and a total fashion risk taker, but it somehow all works on her. I admire how she has the ability to look so cool and appear like she didn’t even try. I have been flirting with the idea of wearing a fitted crop top and Rihanna styles it perfectly below. She kept it simple in all black with skinny jeans and topped it with an oversized boyfriend blazer. I think the key to wearing this look is balance. Find a bottom with a higher waist so you won’t be revealing too much skin. Low-rise jeans with a cropped shirt can come off a little…..well…you know. I’ve re-created this look with every item under $100!
The necklace is from River Island and is very reasonably priced. You can see her debut Rihanna for River Island collection fashion show on one of my previous posts. I’m going to try to get my nerves up and rock a fitted crop top. I’ll be putting in many hours at the Bar Method and staying away from carbs. Do you dare to bare your midriff??
