Carine Roitfeld Look for Less

A basic black sweater is something you will utilize all season long and the off the shoulder trend continues to be huge. If you don’t already own one this Three Dots off-the-shoulder top can be paired with jeans for a casual look or with a skirt for an evening occasion. We do  not recommend it for the office. A silk skirt is an easy piece to wear for a dressy or evening event. The fabric looks luxurious and you can find some pieces that are budget friendly. This skirt by Cushnie et Ochs has a similar look to Roitfeld’s with the ruffle detail.

It’s all about the accessories
