How To: This Fashionista’s look is about never having enough! When you think you have too many layers, too many bracelets, or too many necklaces, think again. You can never have enough! To begin, pick a floor length skirt that will send your style sky high! Then try a shirt that compliments your maxi skirt. If you get a printed skirt stay with a sold top, but if you have a sold skirt go with a printed shirt for variety. Then layer upon layer upon layer your jewels. Be sure to mix up lengths with your necklaces and widths and sizes of your bracelets and add some feather earrings for a natural look. Variety is essential to this look.
