How To: Make a Fool-Proof Outfit

Can I just start by saying how OBSESSED I am with this entire outfit?! Is that okay….or completely creepy since I’m the one in it. I am just so in love with how this turned out and I will let y’all know, there are sometimes I get photos back from shoots and I’m lie….Emily, what were you thinking?! This one came completely on the fly and I mean, if we break this down, it is basically a fool-proof look.

  1. You cannot go wrong with a stripe as the base of your outfit. It will literally save you every single time and is just plain amazing. So obvi I’m already #winning with this dress.
  2. A great neutral shoe is just what it says….NEUTRAL. As in, goes with every item of clothing you own and completely perfect regardless of what you pair with them. Need I say more?!
  3. A great neutral bag. See #2 for explanation.
  4. Fun accessories + bold lip. As I have gotten older, I have figured out that investing your money in classic wardrobe pieces like great denim, shoes and dresses that stand the test of time is SO MUCH better than snagging every single trendy top you can find. This article from Lauren Conrad’s website may or may not have solidified my thinking. And if LC says it, it must be true. If you’re going to play, play around with accessories. They are much more cost effective and show that you are still hip.
