How To Use Column Dressing & Style Wise Link Up


A few years ago I learned about a style concept called column dressing. It is where you wear the same color top and pants and then build out from there. I felt it was a brilliant idea and I use it often. My favorite is the black column. In this outfit I have a pair of comfy high wasted black jeans and an asymmetrical long sleeved tee with a V neck. You will see in the following pictures how versatile this base is by switching out jewelry, bags, shoes and by adding a third piece (another style concept that I will talk about in a future post).  I used things like pulling the neckline down to a cold shoulder, big statement necklaces, adding cardigans and wearing different shoes. I could have probably put together 50 different outfits and of course loved every minute of doing it!


On last Saturday's edition of the "Move It Or Lose It" segment, I talked about my skin care or lack there of. I'm taking this week off. I have pretty much shared my stories related to health, fitness and beauty and will move this feature to the first Saturday of the month from now on. So look for my October post in a few weeks.  Sign up below for my newsletter if you want to get the reminder.
