adding pop with piping details


We know it’s only January, but spring is right around the corner! You’re not quite ready to give up your sweaters and jackets but you want to add a punch of color to your outfit. Our solution is finding pieces with fun piping details! You can still be seasonally appropriate but it’s a nice way to get out of your pants and sweaters rut that most of us find ourselves in during the winter.

Piping is also a great way to accentuate your figure in a way conservative enough for the office. For example, this Tinley Road dress with windowpane piping would look fabulous under a simple black blazer for a business lunch or meeting. How does this accentuate your figure? It highlights the slimmest point, your waist, and the straight lines along the sides will flatter your curves.

Another great piece highlighting your figure is this Milly dress. You can wear it now with tights while it’s still chilly and later with a fabulous navy pump or even a nude wedge. The way the dress is cut shows off your waist similarly to the Tinley Road dress, but in a more feminine and fun way with the addition of the a-line skirt. Though the hemline may not be business appropriate, it is safe to say this dress would be a big hit at most functions.

Finally, who doesn’t want a fun bright accessory? This Rebecca Minkoff bag is so chic and fun with its neon piping. I happen to have one and it has been my trusty sidekick for many events. Just the right size to fit your phone, camera, lip gloss, and a small wallet. The perfect party bag!
