At first glance, I could have sworn Jillian Harris was wearing the Kelly Cuff from Stella & Dot, but no (although she does wear it often!)… And then I stood back and looked at her entire outfit. It’s so simple, yet… so fabulous! How easy is it throw on a bright colored skirt, a neutral tank and some accesories, and then run out the door? You’d be set to go just about anywhere. Bring along a cardigan or a fitted jean jacket (ya know, for those chilly offices or for the occasional spring breeze) and you’re set to go.
On the show, Jillian wore the Walk-A-Ways Dress from Anthropologie. It’s super cute and versatile, and it’s just $128! It’s also available in Green.
To get a similar look, try a fun, flirty skirt. This way you can change the shirt that you wear with it. I found some pretty enchanting skirts at Oli, a fashion site based in the United Kingdom, such as the Tommy Hifiger printed full skirt, £70.00 or the back zip, pink skirt, £25.00. Also, Oli had some fabulous black skirts that would be great staple pieces for any woman’s wardrobe.
Blue is a great color for everyone; check out the Navy Full Pleated Skirt, $60, from Express. Jillian’s orange look may seem a little intimidating, but it is actually an easy color to pull off — it’s about finding a hue that’s just right (i.e. not too peach, not too red, and not too cheap looking).
You might think a full, colorful skirt is more dressy, but you could easily slide into your sandals and wear this to a fair, around the mall or along the boardwalk on a hot summer day. On the same not, you can slip into your stillettos and it’s a whole new look. The shoes and accessories are what determine the overall style.
This outfit can easily be dressed up or down, but to get Jillian’s sophisticated, yet fun and sexy look, dress it up with some killer heels in a neutral shade, such as the BCBG Clady heel, $110, or the Joan and David Odetta Sandal, $199, from endless.com. Also check out the Victoria’s Secret Peep Toe Sandal, $48, from SHOP.COM. Metallics are surprisingly subtle and if they aren’t super shiny or patent, then they can be considered a neutral as well. Try the Hypnotic Quest silver heel, $45, from ShiekhShoes.com.
Pair it with a large enamel cuff and funky earrings like Jillian’s on the show. Try the Colorburst Enamel Bangle, $128; Della Brushed Stone Earrings, $39; Kelly Cuff, $89; Hoopla Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings, $39; all from Stella & Dot.
