There’s a million ways to elevate your style. As a stylist, I can take you from 0 to 100 real quick. Some women desire a complete 180 and others want easy style remedies that align with who they already are. They just need a little more help in streamlining their ideas into daily working style formulas. My style is already pretty dressy. I tend to opt for pieces that lend towards a more elevated feel because dressing up plays a part in my mood. The HGG brands why is centered around ensuring that when you leave out of the house in the morning to tackle your day that you feel the same. My shopping habits have decreased, my style goal has altered and my awareness of sustainability has increased. So, when I think about style elevation, I think about upgrading fabrics, keying in on suitable colors, making smart and solid purchase decisions and ensuring that my wardrobe is one that truly reflects the essence of me.
One of the ways that I like to elevate my style is by opting for 100% silk. The hand (how it feels), appearance and style mood of silk can really take your basic jeans up a notch. Silk is suitable for all season wear, and it’s a simple style switch for cotton tops. It’s not to replace cotton entirely because I love cotton overall, but it’s only to elevate your look into something a bit more interesting. Silk is made into so many different types of garments and has become extremely popular in the style of slip dresses and skirts. There are many places to purchase silk pieces but always start with the thrift store first. That’s where I found this one. It was less than $7 and a great addition to my wardrobe. It was a deviation from my color palette for the season, but when you find a piece that’s great quality, in mint condition, can be easily styled multiple ways and thrown into your capsule with jeans, you go for it!
I decided to pair my silk top with a pair of hi-waisted denim culottes with a frayed hem. Wide legs are probably my favorite style of jeans to wear. They flatter my body beautifully and are a nod to one of the eras of fashion that I love! This pair is one of my most recent styles that I added to my wardrobe a few months ago. After I found the perfect wide leg jeans for Spring & Summer, I was on the hunt for the same style but in a cropped version. I decided to accessorize my look with nude to add a light contrast to the pungent pink. I opted for a pair of statement earrings to elevate the look a little more, an accompanying clear belt with nude piping and a pair of pointed toe, nude heels that I’ve worn religiously since I got them. When they go with everything, you just wear them, lol.
Style elevation doesn’t have to be difficult. Simple switches like fabric choices, style of earrings, style of accessories or keying in on certain details can really make all of the difference in your wardrobe. How do you elevate your style?

Style Tip of the day
Style elevation first starts with the way that you feel about yourself. You need to exude and radiate positive feelings about yourself in order to achieve style elevation. The rest will follow suit with your mood. Style is an outward projection of the inward feelings. YOU are Style and whatever you feel will translate beautifully if you feel great!
