Braided Details

The Wind of Inspiration Outfit of the Day Post - Braided Details - Moa Moa Braided Shoulder Straps Maxi Dress Lauren Ralph Lauren Alexa Sandals Begonia Leather Perlina New York Yellow Clutch Ralph Lauren Yellow Arms Sunglasses Hive & Honey Hammered Open Circle Statement Necklace Kenneth Cole New York Women's Yellow Gold Watch Essie 752 Turquoise & Caicos Duri 384 Backstage Pass Nail Polish

This is the perfect example of an outfit for a hot day when you can barely breathe and can wear only one or two pieces of clothes maximum. Layering is definitely interesting, but you can make interesting even the simplest dress too, just play with colors and details.

In this case I decided to play with the colors and braided accents:
  • yellow clutch and sunglasses arms and fuchsia sandals complement the colors of this dress;
  • braided sandal straps complement braided dress shoulder straps;
  • lilac nail color also coordinates with the dress colors whereas unexpected mint nail color helps to avoid the matchy-matchy effect;
  • gold accents (necklace, watch, bag) complete the whole idea of this outfit with the tender kiss of the sun.
