{ Dare To Wear } How To Elevate Your Biz-Casual Style

Jessie Holeva Style blog

My work requires me to look pulled together with a stylish, creative flare and guess what? That’s what so many of the individuals I style are looking for — a bit professional with personality.  That’s why I am loving this combination so much. It’s easy to recreate and the statement necklace adds so much style. I’ll remember this pairing for a morning that I need to look the part but don’t have the time to dream up a new ensemble before I leave (note: I often have a few ideas of what to wear so mix and match before I head out).

1. Button up. Yup, button up the shirt and wear the statement necklace over it. Now that’s a way to make a statement while keeping it totally professional.

2. One and done. Adding a bold necklace is a the quickest way to infuse fashion and creativity to your look. That’s why I am often with a few statement necklaces in my bag. Tossing one on is so simple and totally switches up an outfit.

3. A monochromatic color palette = a chic canvas. A fun shoe, jewelry, or nail can make it pop. Be an artist and start styling that canvas.

Like the look? I’ve filled the showroom below with stylish pieces that are similar to the ones I’m wearing. If you see me on TV or follow along on Instagram, then these gorgeous necklaces may look familiar. They are indeed from the brand that I’m so proud to represent on QVC, LOGO by Lori Goldstein (my 1 year work anniversary is coming up!). They offer seriously gorgeous statement jewelry in the LOGOlinks collection (and no, I’m not being paid to write this). I get to wear these beauties on air and get so many compliments on social media and in real life that I felt the need to share and style them here on the blog. After all, these outfits are made up of pieces that are really in my wardrobe and that I really love, hence all the repetition of certain pieces. ;)

P.S. Wondering what item is on repeat? There isn’t one. It’s actually a type of item — statement necklaces. I’ve heard so many styling clients and friends say that they love the look, but feared they couldn’t pull it off. Crazy talk! So I decided to style three totally different outfits showing the versatility of statement necklaces. Next one up involves stripes and florals, stay tuned!

{ Dare To Wear } Stay Warm In Style: 3 Ways To Dress Up A Fur Vest

outfit inspirations - 3 ways to drees up a fur vest

It’s cold, really cold. I’ve been bundling up (we did get like 30 inches of snow in the Philly area just a couple of weeks ago) and opting to stay indoors as much as possible. This furry vestie has been a bestie to me since I first picked it up at JAX Boutique.

It was a love-at-first-sight type of thing. I picked it up, put it on, purchased, then met up with my blog photog right outside of the shop and started shooting the first look. The shoot was already scheduled, but the vest was an impromptu new addition and because it’s so cozy ( it’s Pajama Salvage so literally feels like you are wearing a fleece blanket or pjs, SO yummy!) and stylish, it’s been a go-to piece for me.

That’s what makes us all unique. Dress like the special being that you are!
