Accessories

Elegantees are effortless to slip on and comfortable to live in, but it's an accessory that can change your entire outfit. Michael Kors confirms: "I've always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman's outfit." Our lovely 3/4 sleeve "Roshani" dress is one of those designs that you can put exclamations points from head to toe! We've shown it with a printed scarf already, and now you'll see it here with a belt. (We've added a scarf and legwarmers for cooler climate areas). By the way: There is a board on Pinterest in which we pin our favorite fair trade accessories from brands we love. Check it out here.

Bold Holiday

Blue is a bold color to wear for the holidays! With a ruffle and gathered fit of the "Bethsaida" skirt, it's perfect to wear with a neutral sleek top such as our "Natasha." Layer up with a statement necklace, and it's got the appearance of an effortless style.

Silver Accents

Jump into the holiday spirit with adding silver accents to your outfit. It can be shoes, belts, necklaces, other jewelry items, or subtle details such as jewels on a clutch. Silver is stunning - especially against cool colors like the royal purple of the Chelsea top. Hope you're all enjoying the holiday season so far!

Monochromatic Look: The "Chelsea dress"

Have you ever "faked" a dress before? It's as easy as wearing a drapy top over a skirt, but the colors have to be the same. Wearing the same colors is called monochromatic. It's an easy ensemble to get the most mileage out of your elegantees. Here, we've taken our "Chelsea" top and made it into the cutest little peplum dress!

Matching Prints to Solids

There are so many ways to wear the "Chelsea" top. For the royal purple color, an easy way to dress up and keep that simple neckline warm is to pair with a printed scarf. If you have a handful of them, grab one that has a hint of purple in the print combo, and your outfit will be a hit!

Layering "Whitney" for Winter

The slightly relaxed cut and unique seaming detail made this tee a favorite for so many of you in the summer. There is not a reason to hide it in your drawer during these colder months. Layering it with a cardigan and our braided scarves is just one way to wear it!

Wearing a Blouse as a Dress (with modesty!)

Taking 2 pieces that are a similar color, wear them together, and everyone will think you're wearing a dress. Another way to wear the Bridgette top!
