Details, details – styling a faux-vest with patchwork skinnies and ivory booties

Looking to add some “lux” to a simple jeans-and-sweater combo??  Then may I suggest a layer of faux-fur fabulousness like this knee-length vest of mine!!  😉

I’d mentioned in my last post how I believe that “detail” can take an outfit from so-so to sublime…and a statement piece like this is exactly what I was talking about.  Plus, not only does the vest give my turtleneck and patchwork skinnies a major dose of texture…it’s super cozy, too!!  (Bonus points for the pockets, am I right?!)

Of course, a really great pair of shoes can do an awful lot when it comes to elevating an ensemble, as well…and I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve had these ivory Vince Camuto booties on repeat recently!!

So by all means say “yes!” to the basics; but for a look that’s truly worthy of a fearless fashionista, don’t just leave it there…because even a routine run to the grocery store can be more fun when you include a little flair in what you wear!!
