Simply Sophisticated. I think this perfectly describes my approach to dressing. I’m so excited to be teaming up with Banana Republic as a part of their Simply Sophisticated Summer and to share my take on styling a couple of their current pieces.
A sleek neutral sheath dress is the perfect piece to wear from the office to dinner. This Banana Republic bi-stretch sheath dress hugs me in all the right places, but as a major bonus it does not appear ‘tight’ in person. The halter neck allows just enough collarbone to peek out to make the look subtly sexy for an evening out. AND, it’s a perfect piece to pack for a trip as it’s incredibly versatile. You guys know how much I love versatility and pieces that are great for travel.
Not a fan of showing your arms? The fit of this dress creates such a feminine shape, even when paired with a piece on top. So, throw on a simple cardigan or cropped blazer. I’d opt for a neutral one to keep the look sophisticated and sleek.
My top style hack for feeling instantly sophisticated? Don an outfit comprised of just one color. This black silk cashmere crew neck sweater is super lightweight and makes me feel so polished. Paired here with black culottes for a casual chic look, but I also love this sweater with a black leather pencil skirt to up the style equation.
This simple sophistication approach is also present in my beauty routine. In most instances I prefer to keep my hair style simple and my makeup neutral. I feel that opting for neutral hues in clothing and makeup crate a timeless appearance that won’t find you later questioning “what was I thinking?!” I’ve followed suit with this look to keep the pairing simple, yet chic.
