Whether you’re an urban lady or a southern belle, Carver’s sweet, simple style will increase your fashion sophistication. The following picks from Carver’s Instagram will help you emulate her look:
Ready for a weekend getaway, Sydney donned these stunning, sophisticated and comfy threads. The look features a tweed jacket over simple white leggings and a black tee, proving once and for all that the key to a great outfit is to start with a few basic pieces and garnish with a statement piece and coordinated accessories.
To dress like Carver, stock your wardrobe with basic, universal pieces that you can mix and match. Splurge on arresting, jaw-dropping pieces and wear them whenever you want all eyes on you.
For this look, Carver makes a statement with a bold, colorful scarf. The vibrant tapestry of the scarf is set off by coordinating solid pieces in matching and complimentary tones. Dressed in layers for warmth, Carver chose ochre loafers for comfort and a pop of color.
Don’t be afraid to play with color and bold patterns. Put your outfit together by choosing your statement piece first and adding solid pieces in complimentary colors.
