Statements & Staples

Pictures 2 4.jpg

One of my favorite statement pieces {AKA risk pieces} from the summer is this pretty little white peplum top from ASOS. It’s ‘luxury’ material is so soft, and I love the sweetheart neckline and structured bottom. I like to call garments like this risk pieces because us ladies typically take a chance as to whether we will get repeated wear out of a piece that is so memorable when worn. It also may not easily coordinate with a lot of other clothing that already exists in our closet.

The key to making a worthwhile ‘risky’ purchase is first visualizing at least three complete outfits that you can create {within your existing wardrobe} with that one piece without having to buy additional clothing to complete the outfits. If it still checks out, then by all means splurge on it!!

I paired my top with two wardrobe staples of mine…a floral midi skirt and black silk shorts. I have worn both so many ways this summer! The ASOS top is sold out but you can check out similar statement styles that are great for fall here, here, here, here {plus size} and here {super splurge}. See all other outfit details at the end of the post. Enjoy!
