Styling 101: American Girl

I’ve been hinting at a fun new collaboration and now it’s finally time to share! Welcome to Styling 101 – A new series that I’ll be publishing in collaboration with Sasha Maks Vintage where we’ll be sharing fun ways to style basic pieces & outfits using fabulous vintage jewelry that’s available online to you all.

This first post is inspired by San Francisco’s hosting of The America’s Cup – An all American, nautical look paired with statement pieces that make it really stand out.

{Jewelry: Enamel X’s and O’s Necklace, Kenneth Lane Chunky Lucite and Gold Link Necklace, Trifari Lucite Starfish Earrings & Ciner Domed Ring}

{Clothes: Ruffled White Button DownFree People, Dark-Wash Cropped Jeans – Piperlime & Nude Pumps – BCBGeneration}

{You can HYPE this look on Lookbook.nu, shop similar pieces on ASOS Fashion Finder, or click the hyperlinks above to shop comparable pieces and visit store websites}

Check out more outtakes from this shoot here (just log into Facebook to view).

By adding a large oversized necklace in gold, white, and blue to this basic white button down & jeans we’ve created something more unique and interesting, not to mention something fun and all-American perfect for a weekend occasion like The America’s Cup races.

Stay tuned for more exciting looks in this Styling 101 series – From retro outfits with great hats & faux fur to traditional and classic looks that’ll flatter anyone’s personal style.
