The Difference Is in the Details
Three Ways to Polish Your Look

Ever feel like your outfit is on point but something just isn’t quite right? It could be the styling. 

Nail every detail of your next look with these tips:

Ice Your Cake Accordingly

Jewelry should always complement the neckline of your outfit, either fitting within it or drastically contrasting in length and shape. Constantly digging your necklace back out of your shirt? it’s probably not the best style for that outfit.

Rule of Three

Aesthetically speaking, you see the “rule of three” all over the place—photography, decorating and more. This ratio is pleasing to the eye for outfitting as well! Rather than visually cutting your body in half with your top and bottom, play with proportions in thirds.

Show Some Skin—or Not

While function should always be considered before form, how you finish your look with shoe selection matters! That slight breeze you feel when your boot is a little too short for your pants? That slice of skin might also look a little awkward. Opt for a taller boot (or at least add matching socks) or a more open shoe style all together.
