You may remember my last Inspired With Intel post highlighting some of my favorite forms of inspiration when it comes to style, all while showing off Intel's new sleek ultra book, the ultimate accessory for the the budding fashionista. So of course, what better way than to start off part two than with some inspiring textures that make getting dressed and cultivating my style so fun.
Since inspiring me back in 2010 via Carrie Bradshaw, I've been mad about pleats in all forms and finally snagged a red pleated maxi. They're the ultimate lady like texture (next to ruffles) and have the ability to transform from possible school girl to chic and edgy.
More and more shapes are appearing in the construction of accessories and I have been more and more inspired by the dainty little pieces of jewelry with intricate detailing, like this embellished arrow.
I love the idea of playing with texture when putting my outfits together and of course it's an even bigger plus when the designer and brand does it for you, I love how they paired the eyelet with a suede oversized bow.
I also love how for this wedge they combined tribal, leather and espadrille with this wedge, it's the perfect summer statement shoe.
Since shoes are one of my biggest weaknesses, I pay very close attention to detail. And with braiding's subtle yet classic nature it gives subtle yet pretty detail to an otherwise ordinary sandal.
I know I mentioned leopard in my last post, but after receiving this blazer I felt even more inspiration with my favorite 'neutral'. The options are endless.
Fringe, Color and Ruffles
It's not every day you see ruffles side by side fringe but I have to say it surprisingly works and I love that they incorporated color in to the layout.
When it comes to simplicity, delicate details are a perfect fit, whether it's on the hemline or even across the bodice, it gives just the right amount of pop without the added fuss.
With just a touch of shine these patent leather standouts get more recognition and become more dressed up for a night on the town. Shine is well used in nail color, handbags and even lip color ...
Giving an otherwise simple manicure a touch of metallic brightens up the whole feel, I also love seeing metallics being incorporated back into separates and accessories.
