Any girl who has ever learned the transformative powers of the LBD knows that a good outfit is defined more by the smartly paired accessories than the actual clothes.
A fabulous necklace, a luxe handbag or the perfect face-framing sunglasses can completely elevate your look. During the steamy summer months, when layering your clothing is not an option, your accessories become ever more important as they add a fresh perspective to your outfit. Vince Camuto college brand ambassador Lindsey Jernigan follows this adage, explaining “In terms of evening wear, I usually opt for monochrome apparel staples with intriguing silhouettes. Then, to all of my ensembles, I add accessories like metallic jewels and fashionably functional clutches.”
In this evening look, Lindsey demonstrates this style-philosophy perfectly. The rigid Vince Camuto Kash clutch adds a polished appeal to Lindsey’s bohemian and flowy summer evening look; “The Lucite Kash Clutch provides and unexpected contrast,” points out Lindsey.
With breezy maxi-dresses and semi-sheer blouses the go-to for summer nights, follow Lindsey’s cue and reserve the cross body handbag for daytime errand running. Come nightfall, opt for a structured clutch to give your look that evening elegance. Introducing a sleek silhouette to your outfit is an effortless style statement that underlines the transition from day to night.
