Look Of The Week - Brandie Herbst

WHO Brandie Herbst, Interior Designer & New Mom, Downtown West Palm Beach
THE LOOK Calypso dress, Gucci scarf tied at waist, studded belt, J.Crew sandals
THE JEWELRY Unsigned Pauline Rader pendent necklace, assorted Bakelite bracelets, Taratata gold earrings
, House of Lavande
Cameron Diaz's laid back, California cool and unstudied look, and Nicole Richie's bohemian elegance. I like simple, classic silhouettes and accessorizing with unexpected color combos via bold jewelry, shoes or handbags.
Anything yellow, especially in earrings and/or a handbag, a clear glass ring from Venice, vintage junkboat necklace, and my snakeskin studded cuff worn with layers of wide rhinestone bracelets. I also love throwing in a piece of jewelry accented with a skull & bones motif to mix up the predictability of an ensemble.
Brandie's beach chic look is all about layering with both textures and accessories. To achieve a similar look, keep the main piece of your outfit in a neutral color way, and add in bold punches of color with statement accessories. To keep your look from going too over-the-top, make sure that your added adornments color coordinate together.
