Hi there! It's Liz Schneider from the fashion and style blog, Sequins & Stripes, and I am thrilled to be a new contributor on LDV sharing my favorite fashion tips and trends in a new series called "Closet Confidential." I have so many exciting + stylish ideas for future posts but I thought what better way to dive into a new series than with a sense of style that all of us strive to obtain; effortless style.
Clearly, it doesn't take much to appear effortless. Start with one piece that makes a statement, whether it be a pair of patent pink shoes, adorable tortoise sunglasses, a mix of feminine + edgy elements, casual tennis shoes, or a metallic skirt. Build you outfit based on this piece and layer with a few basics from your closet, add a top knot on your head, and off you go! The less thought the better, here are a few statement pieces to get you started...
...add a little confidence and everyone on the streets will be turning their heads!
Until next time, have a stylish week!
Liz

Great items, especially loving the cheetah print blazer. Effortless style is the best. :)

Love Liz's blog and style...excited for this series. I need sooooooo much help with "Effortless Style" I am always in either sweat pants or all dressed up....I need to learn how to manage a comfortable everyday look that is fashionable, but unstuffy.

I love all these tyles! Envying a polka dot chiffon dress, love the stripes with metallic, etc. Lovely inspiration.
Now I wanna go shopping!
