Petite Fashion Challenge


Hosted this month by Stylepint!

The challenge:

“Dress Up Your Basics”

Jeans and a tee is a classic outfit starter. Depending on what you layer over this basic pairing, you can change style and feel of the entire look. This is your chance to show your personality and your creativity.

For this challenge, start off with a jeans and tee basic look (it can be any style or color) and dress it up to show off your personal style with accessories, jewelry, and whatever you’d like to add.

First off, I just wanted to give props to Stylepint for coming up with such a fantastic idea for a challenge. So many women struggle with how to turn a basic tee and jeans into a stylish, put together outfit. I figured I would take this challenge literally, start with one of my favorite pairs of jeans and a colorful tee, and show you each layer that I added to achieve an outfit I would feel myself in and actually wear! I’m sure all the other petite ladies came up with awesome outfits, and I can’t wait to see everyone’s take on the challenge!

Gap Perfect Boot Cut Jeans and Ann Taylor tee:


Adding some fun Banana Republic heels, a must for me being only 5-2 :


Jewelry is next…I love cheapies like this Forever 21 necklace and New York & Co bracelet:


Another favorite accessory of mine is a cute scarf….this one and the belt are from Ann Taylor:


And lastly, to pull the whole look together, I added a cardigan (from NY & Co):

    Yay! I love the way you showed how you put together all the layers! Looks great,e ven without the cardigan.

    Too bad I didn’t know about this challenge. I think I’ll have to go to the AN forum more. 🙂

    I love the fact that the scarf adds another element into the outfit. It looks like its a part of the cardigan and adds interest. Nice job!

    Love the layers and how you added an item for each photo so you can see the changes. You got the challenge right on the nose! Chic, simple, and totally you! =)

    I am dying to know how you made your site into a mobile one. I just saw your site on my cell phone and it’s awesome. How did you do that? Do you have a link I could use?

    Great job Tara! I really like how the tee is the accent color of your outfit and the rest are neutral, instead of the other way around! The pics of the step by step process are great too 🙂

    I love that you took pictures of the transformation and I am in awe of how every little piece of the puzzle contributes to the overall result. I love it!

    I liked how you showed us how you layered each accessory. The complete look is so awesome! Really like the idea of a large scarf belted together at the waist. Looks so defined!

    Really nice outfit Tara! The step by step process makes it a lot easier for dummies like me to replicate haha 🙂 I’m going to have to try the blazer and scarf sometime very soon.
