How Do You Level Up Your Look?

To level up your look, I found complimentary pieces that pair perfectly with key staples.  What’s more, you get all the compliments and know that fashion feels good.

Scroll through these top five pieces to level up your look and I’ve provided a variety of options with clickable links and widgets for easy browsing and shopping.  This way it’s easy to shop the look that feels like you.

You always have shopping options, and as your personal stylist, I am here to help.

Casual Topper

Level up your look

Toppers elevate any look.  You can opt for the traditional jacket.  The cabi Pose Jacket is a flattering A-line that frames the face for your perfect selfie.

Shown here: Pose Jacket | Manet Top | White Skinny | Gold Chunky Necklace | Platform Wedge

For reference: I’m 5′ 5″, 145ish pounds…wearing size Small in Jacket and Top; Size 6 in white jeans.

Or reach for the shacket. We saw this complimentary piece over the last couple of seasons and PureWow sees this trend “really picking up” in 2022.

Straight Leg Jean

Level Up Your Look
Hi Lo Crop

The high rise, straight leg plays right into the perfect proportion.  Notice cabi’s hi-lo crop is 2/3 of the outfit and very eye pleasing.

Pop of Color Strappy Sandal

Pops of color add amazing interest and intrigue to level up any look. Pantone’s red “makes a dramatic statement”.  Here are other pops of color options….hover and click to discover more.

Layered Jewelry

I love adding layers to level up any look.  Here are some stackables I found from Bourbon and Bowties….an online jewelry site that I’m obsessing over.  The styles and the prices are amazing

White Denim

If you’ve been to any of styling appointments or my fashion with friends get togethers, then you know that it is against the law not to have white denim in your closet for Spring and Summer.  Hint: you can always wear white after Labor Day.

Level Up Your Look
The Skinny

Cabi white denim gives you all the right kinds of coverage 😉 and cabi brings white in two top silhouettes for the season….the skinny in “bright white” and the 100% boyfriend in vintage white.
