I interrupt the regularly scheduled program (a.k.a. Dress Your Shape) to send you this urgent message:
You. NEED. These. Three. Pieces.
At least, I do… especially at these prices.
ASOS is one of those retailers that is like a rabbit hole of fashion. There are so many options and so much inventory to sort through, that it can quickly become overwhelming. After a while, styles can start to blur together and you shut your screen down out of frustration (at least I do!). However, if you stick with it, you’ll uncover amazing pieces at equally amazing prices — kind of like the 3 below.
When worn together, these 3 items are all major league players in creating an effortlessly-chic look, but when split and interspersed with other wardrobe favorites, you have MVP workhorses that will definitely score you a fashion home run.
• A Summer-Chic Graphic Tee
I’ve always loved a soft, graphic tee shirt. It’s the essential piece that can transition any item in your closet from day-to-night and vice-versa. When it comes to summer dressing, a t-shirt is just an easy solution to any summer style quandary. This CALIFORNIA DREAMING TEE is a nice mix of retro style with a modern, slim-fit cut and would look fabulous tucked into the pants below.
On a personal, over-30 y.o. note: I also like that this t-shirt is not as juvenile as some of the other graphic designs out there. Ummm… no, I don’t exactly need a t-shirt that says, “BAE” on it.
• Wide Leg Trousers
Summer is not the time to feel restricted, which is why you should be giving wide-leg trousers and culottes like these, ASOS PLEATED DRAPED CULOTTES a shot.
C’mon, you know you want to!
If culottes are a little too fashion forward for your taste, a WIDE LEG TROUSER will give you a similar look and feel. I love the slightly higher rises of both options for slimming the waistline and creating an hourglass silhouette.
• Block Heel Sandals
My clients are always asking me for on-trend, shoe options that don’t include potentially painful high heels. A chunky, block heel is always my go-to answer. These STRAPPY TIE WOODEN HEEL SANDALS just happen to be real suede and under $60. The dainty ankle wrap is a nice way to keep the block heel from looking too clunky and is totally on trend.
