Once again I was excited to have another opportunity to style Meredith – this time for the UGA Alumni Awards luncheon. My inspiration was wanting Meredith’s outfit to be professional but still evoke a spring vibe.
(Blazer, JCrew Factory; Dress, Jcrew; Belt, Target; Calvin Klein Pumps, Nordstrom)
I fell in love with a V-neck fit and flare dress from JCREW and thought it would be the perfect focal point for Meredith’s outfit. The dress had a geometric lace overlay in black and white and looked like something Meredith could continue to wear year round. I was pleased that the fit-and-flare dress had a V-neck because they’re not as common as their crew-neck counterparts. For a woman with curves and a larger bust, a V-neck balances the upper body so that the bust doesn’t become the focal point. Because Meredith had to wear red and black, we bought a white linen blazer to lighten the dress and accessorized with a skinny black belt and red patent leather pumps. Meredith was a little unsure of red shoes but I recommended a darker red that wouldn’t be so bold at a business event.
Because I’m a UGA alumna and bleed red and black, I really enjoy styling a client in one of my favorite color palettes. I look forward to creating more looks for Meredith in the future!
