But if I lost everything, or wanted to start my wardrobe from scratch, these 61 feminine essentials would create a complete wardrobe ready for every season. That’s right! This post includes clothes, outerwear, accessories, the whole nine yards! I guess you could say this would be my version of a super chic capsule wardrobe. Honestly, I truly believe every woman would benefit from having these items in their wardrobe. I’m not going to say you need them, because you don’t “need” any of them, but having this solid base will enable you to look chic & feminine with ease no matter what season you’re in.

Bold & So Extra!

I’m so excited to share with you my Designer Crush for June! Dolce & Gabbana has been a stand out designer for me over the years. I’ve always been attracted to the bright colors, bold prints, & extravagant accessories. This look has been my most fun to put together to date. With D&G, more is always more!

In this post, you’ll see D&G photos I’m totally inspired by, get details on my look, learn how you can create your own D&G look, & shop some super affordable D&G inspired pieces! Just keep scrolling…

How To Get The Look

My Dolce & Gabbana look is all about mixing prints, textures, & most of all COLOR! These are things D&G definitely does not shy away from & neither should you. The idea for this look first came from this dress I found at Goodwill last summer. It immediately reminded me of D&G resort wear & I knew I had to create a look with it. (similar dresses here & here) To add a bit of drama to this outfit, I layered this sheer pussy bow top underneath (also worn here & here). Then it was time for a bit of print mixing, so I added my zebra shoes to contrast with the floral dress. Sticking to the animal theme, I knew this blush bag would be perfect for this look because of the gold chain strap & the lion head clasp.

Then it came down to accessories. I’m totally obsessed with the D&G large & in charge jeweled earrings. Whether they’re floral, fruity, or just big, they bring the sparkle & color big time. I found these colorful floral jeweled earrings for only $4! What a steal! Of course, I had to include this gold chain bracelet with pendant coins because is quickly becoming one of my everyday accessory. To finish it off, I wore this super fun flower crown (because, why not?!) with a fun & interesting pair of sunnies.

It’s All About Confidence

Wearing a Dolce & Gabbana inspired look is all about confidence. It’s about how you wear the bold colors & prints & jewels with pride. Let me tell you, people will stare, but I’m saying let them stare! D&G, just like F&F, is all about fearless fashion. Dare them to stare. Rock your look. Be creative & be bold! Remember, more is MORE!

The Look I’m Loving

You know that perfect outfit you own that you can wear to grab brunch with your girlfriends? Now imagine that look gently sprinkled with touches of sparkle. Do you smile at the thought of that like I do? I just love a little shimmer! Personally, at the moment I’m not into wearing necklaces, but items on my radar include earrings, bracelets, rings, hair accessories, & even hand bags. I am on the hunt to find the best affordable sparkly bits. These little pretties know how to catch people’s eyes & elevate any look.

My 3 Favorite Styles

Bows

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love bows. The more the merrier. Bow earrings add the sweetest feminine statement to a look. For dramatic shine, these long black bow earrings easily pair with any outfit. My smaller white bow earrings are a great dupe for the Oscar de la Renta bow earrings. When I don’t want anything flashy, my gold bow studs are the perfect go-to earrings.

Gold + Stars

I’ve had my second piercing done for years now, but I don’t always take advantage of it. I’m really into the look of huggie earrings (dainty gold earrings that “hug” your ear) layered up on the ear. Especially if they are asymmetrical! The star + moon set I’m wearing in these photos is one of my favorite sets at the moment. On the other side, the star & moon are reversed! I also have this larger pair of affordable star + moon earrings that are great for making a statement. Earrings that are asymmetrical like this are also seen from some of my favorite designers such as Dior, Gucci, & Oscar de la Renta.

(Shoutout to my Dior Studded Lady Bag dupe that’s under $20!!!)

Another great way to add a touch of sparkle to your look is with bracelets & rings. I’m typically drawn to items that are mostly gold with a few sparkles thrown in the mix. Like this dainty nautical charm bracelet I’m wearing here. Old school charm bracelets are making a come back you guys! Time to whip out your old ones or find new affordable ones such as this. There is something so satisfying to having a little jingle on your wrist.

Pearls

It’s no secret that I love love love pearls right now. And how could I not? They are everywhere right now & so perfectly feminine. Designers like Jennifer Behr are influencing the accessories scene in a major way. Her use of pearls in bows, headbands, & clips for your hair is just stunning. Ever since seeing her work, I’ve been searching for similar pieces that give that same feel, but at a more affordable price point. This pearl headband (also seen here) is one of those pieces, & I can’t stop wearing it! Also pearl hair clips like these & these are so gorgeous & are currently on my shopping list. As far as earrings go, some trending pearl pieces include these pearl heart earrings (under $5) (worn here), & these super fun shell + pearl statement earrings.
