What: A touch of bling…
Why: Thank Jennifer Lopez for a slightly heftier wallet; her flowy Marchesa Oscar dress with a crystal-encrusted neckline has started the most tasteful of ‘twofer’ trends. One embellished piece like this Lotta Stensson burnt sienna beaded halter v-neck ($125) adds enough sparkle that you don’t need to wear any extra bling. Simply pair the sexy top with jeans and a simple bangle or two.
The Tory Burch brown cotton ‘Sarah’ beaded top ($160) is another outrageous way to make a statement without blowing your budget. The deep bronze sequins dress up the scoop neckline, but the silk graphic base doesnâ€™t get lost in the shiny shuffle.
If youâ€™re looking for more coverage, there are a lot of great embellished tunics out there, such as the Style&co. Embellished-Neckline Top ($27), which is simple, subtle and easy to wear, or this white and gold Embellished Tunic ($36), also by Style&co. Both are bargains that can be worn as easily with a skirt as with jeans.
