Because the Chinese skirt had a dressy feel, I chose to pair it with a lace shirt. Beads and sparkles on the necklace, bracelets, and shoes jazzed up the outfit. (Lace shirt, cami, and bracelets, Charlotte Russe; skirt, unknown, from China; necklace, unknown, from Hawai'i; shoes, Touch Ups, my wedding shoes!)
The dress with the Eastern-inspired overlay only needed shoes and accessories. The necklace and bracelet brought some shine to the outfit, and the sparkly high heels polished off the look. (Dress and overlay, unknown; necklace, New York & Company; bracelet, unknown, from Target; shoes, Valerie Stevens.)
I also wanted to create a casual look with the overlay, but I couldn't find anything in my closet that worked well. How would you style the overlay for a casual look?
