One of my big phrases when it comes to fashion is if something has the “Wow-Factor”. How can you tell if an item has it? Simple. When you come across an item and it just screams out at you “buy me” or you get this feeling that you’ve just found an item that there could be no substitute for, thats when you know.
Typically a “Wow-Factor” item can stand alone, and doesn’t need much to add to it. For example, when I came across this Free People Leopard Print Top at Lord & Taylor the other day, I said to myself “Wow” (which is also another indicator of a Wow-Factor item) and knew that my search for a leopard-print staple item for the fall was done.
The feeling and texture of this top is incredible and I love the style leopard print that it has. When I’m wearing an article of clothing that is very busy (prints, sparkles, lots of detail, etc.) I like to keep the rest of my outfit either simple or I stick to one solid, complimentary color to really make the print or “Wow-Factor” item POP! The shoes are old, Jessica Simpson (who makes great styles at seriously reasonable prices- similar here) and the skirt is another classic ribbed midi skirt (which I discussed more in detail in last week’s outfit post) in black from Urban Outfitters.
The top is seriously my favorite shirt at the moment and the back of the neck has these gorgeous little brass stained buttons going up the neck (not pictured) that add an elegant touch. The last time I checked there were only a couple left in stock so make sure to grab yours quick if you want one too!
