Futuristic, chunky, tribal-inspired collars are all over the place, and while you could splurge on a Mawi beauty (see collage 2), now is the perfect time to snag a cheaper version (most are under $50) from Topshop or Asos!

summer brights

forever 21 dress (worn as top), laugh cry repeat shorts, noir necklace (sold out but a few of these would look awesome layered), vintage sunglasses, asos clutch (similar), bauble bar bracelet (more neon here, here, here), zara flats

This color blocked outfit felt a little empty until I added the intense tribal collar.  Thoughts?

til you get enough

forever 21 blouse (love this new one), asos pants, noir scarab cuff (sold out but earrings here), vintage clutch, gifted ring, nail rock nail wraps in gold, aldo pumps (similar here)

Ok, I can’t get enough of my floral pants so I’m just not stopping.  It also looks like this striped top works perfectly with every floral thing I own.  Awesome.

the belt trick

isabel lu dress, random belt, noir scarab cuff, vintage clutch, zara sandals

I absolutely love the details and color of this dress, but it was a little shapeless when I bought it.  Even after tailoring, it didn’t quite fit me right.  So I used the belt trick: sew two belt loops to the sides of the dress (or use two large safety pins to make the loops if like me, you’re in a hurry/sewing averse), then thread a sash belt or wide ribbon through the loops and tie in the back.  This way you get an adjustable fit, and there’s no belt crossing your waist, causing fabric to bunch in the wrong spots.  I also love how a belt adds to the draping effect on the back of this dress, and coordinates with the black accents in my shoes!

Well, happy Friday folks!
