My new favorite summer piece is this Bottega Veneta Kari Duchesse Silk Top. To me, silk always airs opulence and glamour so I was thrilled when it was popping up all over Fashion Week. Combined with the wrap-style shape and raw hemline, this silk blouse is the conservative, yet chic top your wardrobe has been missing. Pair it with dress pants for an office meeting or black silk shorts perfect for date night.
Since I was going for more of a street style look, I opted for a simple pair of Zara Super Skinny Jeans. Distressed jeans are all the rage right now, but with this blouse I wanted something that would complement its refinement rather than juxtapose it. Carefully slit at the knees, these Zara jeans were trendy without being overly edgy.
To give this look a little more personality, I decided to step it up with Valentino Rockstud Leopard Pump Heels – because no one does a statement heel quite like Valentino. The pointed-toe and t-strap silhouette remain true to the brand’s iconic style, but the multicolored studs and leopard print offer a contemporary and flirty twist. The oxblood color of the rockstuds is enhanced by this Aritzia Snakeskin Envelope Clutch. An oversized clutch, whether bold textures or understated, is a simple way to give your look an instant dose of fashion allure. Right off the runway and big enough for all of your beauty essentials, this clutch is the perfect evening bag.
