Now that I have an (over) stuffed closet and I can’t really justify expanding my wardrobe much more (in fact, I’d love it if you helped me downsize it!), I’m really enjoying adding flair to my outfits with unique, statement accessories. They add so much style versatility, and it’s so much fun to play with unique styling combinations! 🙂
One of my top loves this season is the little black neck bow.
A simple, flowing black tie bow topping a crisp white shirt is an impeccably dressy, classy touch. Wearing this Karl Lagerfeld bow, I feel like I can channel the same supreme sophistication that he does. It’s well-made, of stretchy cotton and leather, and has the added comfort benefit of an adjustable snap closure.
I built the outfit around the bow, choosing to anchor it with a classic white shirt by Theory and a smart, cropped military jacket. To keep things from feeling too heavy, and to make it holiday-appropriate, I literally lightened things up with a gauzy skirt with a subtle gold shimmer, minimalist gold sandals, and a soft gold leather purse.
This is one of those outfits I truly wish I could wear everyday. Touches like the neck bow and gold accents really make this outfit feel special; the compliments I received as we were shooting were great validation!

Happy holidays, and have fun creating your holiday look! What are you most looking forward to wearing this holiday season?
We really should have a photoshoot. Check your Model Mayhem.
I absolutely love the whole look. I need the shoes for my husband’s holiday party.
What a pretty outfit! Absolutely love your Chanel Flap!
You’ve pulled the outfit together so well. I sometimes wish I was girly enough to wear such things – I’d feel so out of place if I wore that 🙁
Lovely! I am not sure if I could pul it all off but I would love the jacket.
Beautiful outfit! That gold pleated skirt is definitely a classic beauty for holiday season and throughout the year. Great look.
This look is so adorable I have been looking for the perfect outfit for a Christmas party and this looks like a winner.. Thanks for sharing
