I apologize for making up today’s word. I know that X-tras isn’t really a word...but in my defense, there aren’t any (that I could find) X words that relate to style. So…thanks for giving me a pass.
X-tras are those pieces in your wardrobe that add some pizzazz. They aren’t basics or essentials...and they aren't the same for everyone. There are no rules for what qualifies as an x-tra. You call the shots. You decide what becomes that ultra-fantastic piece that makes you feel like a rock star every time you wear it. X-tras are special.
After you’ve created a functional closet filled with clothing that supports your lifestyle and allows you to dress with ease….it’s time to add some special sauce.
These pieces are not what you reach for every day, but they are vital to your wardrobe. The x-tras are waiting in the wings, yet always at the ready when you need to pump up the wow factor.
Some examples of awesome x-tras include...
A fairy tale skirt, a show-stopping jacket or sweaters that sparkle. Remember, you determine what this element looks like for you. Once you find a piece you love...don't save it for special occasions.
Go ahead and mix it into your every day wardrobe. Be brave.
The holidays will be here soon. Now is the perfect time to experiment and find an x-tra for your wardrobe. The stores are filling up with all things fabulous…and you'll fit right in this season when you rock a little more bling. Need some inspiration? Anthropologie and J Crew are masters at curating looks that include one (BIG) part dazzle!
It's the final week of Simple Style A-Z.
