Get The Look

Cropped Sweater

Topshop Crop Sweater, $160

A cropped sweater a la this Topshop top will help emphasize the voluminous, high-waist shape of a full skirt.

Full Skirt

Simona Jacquard Full Skirt, $395

Whether you buy vintage or new, a midi skirt with full volume is key to channeling the fabulous '50s era. We suggest choosing something in a solid, neutral tone to give you more playing room when it comes to your accessories.

Statement Necklace

Dannijo Mallory Necklace, $550

Swarovski crystals merge with resin stones in this colorful collar—it's a guaranteed conversation-starter.

An electro-hued necklace will bring a modern feel to your more timeless pieces.

Colorful Clutch

Choose pumps in a classic silhouette, but in an attention-grabbing hue (like this hot pink!) for a classic yet contemporary vibe.

Polish off a monochromatic ensemble with super-bright shoes.
