double take

We’re excited to welcome Inez, personal style blogger for StyleChic360 as a guest contributor for Meijer Style. With a passion for bold prints and fun colors, we challenged her to create two looks that highlight her fun loving spirit. Spoiler alert: she nailed it.

Style Chic 360 Double Take Black Skater Dress

Since spring has finally sprung here in Michigan, I wanted to focus on a look that would be perfect for the weather ahead. It all started with a cute little black skater dress. The great thing about skater dresses is they look great on all figures. They can be dressed up or down and worn on their own or with a blazer, cardi or even a jean jacket. Honestly, the options are pretty limitless.

For my first look, I wanted the dress to stand out and do its own thing, adding a blue statement necklace and black and white clutch. Who ever said solid colors are boring? These power pieces came together perfectly.

Next up, I wanted to incorporate a few spring trends in one killer outfit. As soon as I spotted this printed kimono and fringe shoulder bag at Meijer, I knew they would be the perfect additions to the bohemian vibe I was going for. Adding my fave black floppy hat and statement shooties I pulled from the corner of my closet, my look was complete.

From color blocking essentials to eye-catching boho prints, skaters are my favorite basic to accessorize this season. One dress, two very different looks. Which is your favorite?

Meijer Style Summer Brights Accessories

Helloooo, summer! Finally the drab gray of winter has exited stage left and has been replaced with blooming flowers, a clear blue sky and fireflies that light up the night. As you welcome your summer wardrobe back from hibernation, give it what it really deserves—a big splash of color.

Take your first dive with an ocean-inspired chunky necklace and bracelets. The mint, turquoise and powder blue colors will give you that summer vacation look, even if you’re long past the luxury of summer’s off. (Seriously though, how great was that?)

Blue handbags tell everyone you’re in a lake state of mind, and floral-inspired infinity scarves with lace trim perk up even your most basic work staples.

Find inspiration from the flowers in your neighborhood gardens and opt for pink starburst earrings and coordinating necklace. Or go bold with a mashup of corals, blues and neutrals for a necklace as beautiful as an entire bouquet.

We all know summer is much too short. Take advantage of the sunshine surplus with summer brights that flatter. How bright will you shine?
