The Power Of Accessories … One Sweatshirt Styled 5 Ways

Hello my friends!
I am back this week with my second installment 
in my weekly feature
The Power of Accessories
where I take one piece of clothing
style it multiple ways
to show case 
the power and fun of styling with accessories!

Today I am styling around this
novelty sweatshirt
I found at Forever 21.

I was looking for a piece of clothing to freshen up
my base neutral wardrobe.

I knew this would be the perfect piece
to add some fresh flavor to my existing pieces
with the graphic design 
which is made up of
hello and goodbye
in all different languages.

I also knew the hood would  make for lovely layering options.

My first pairing
uses the sweatshirt in a typical ensemble with
 knit pants 

A perfect look for morning walks on the beach.

Adding a fur collar
is the perfect way to 
add some glam to the sweatshirt
I always love
a great juxtaposition!

a fringe skirt
pointy heels
 a pearl headband
is an easy and casual look
for sunset cocktails!

Adding a long skirt
is also a perfectly easy way
to get some SoCal beach glam
especially when pairing them
with my 
Trina Turk mules.
A look that is perfect for some 
casual alfresco dining by the beach.

 a wide legged crop pant
furry vest
ankle booties
works great for almost anywhere
in our casual SoCal.

I think one of my favorite pairings
is with
a crisp blazer.
The sweatshirt really gives it a playful edge
 might just be my pick to 
this weekend
when I take the train down 
to San Diego
to attend the Bridal show 
with my wonderful daughter!

Nothing finishes an outfit 
with fabulous glamour like
 wide brimmed hat!
This is always one accessory that does double duty
 here in SoCal
when you can get a dose of sun protection
with your Glam!

I hope I have you excited 
about the fabulous and transformative 
Power Of Accessories !

where I styled an inexpensive Forever 21 jumpsuit

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life


  1. Cute! Love the shadows and sunshine in your images!

  2. Look at that last photo. You are the quintessential golden girl!

  3. So cute! I love the one with the long pleated skirt but they are all darling outfits.

    1. Why thank you my dear friend! And big thanks once again for your latest How I Wear My Necklace post! xo

  4. Thanks, Tamera. I go for the gaucho ensemble. And thanks again for the inspiration. After viewing your blogs I invariably start thumbing through my closet and putting stuff together in a new way.

    1. Thank you so very much my dear! I am so happy to hear I inspire you to shop and style your own closet! Fabulous!

  5. I like the hoody most in the casual look and your sun glasses are so chic as the shoes you show in the second last pic. But as always...
    so creative.

    1. Thank you for your comment and your visit my dear! Hope you are enjoying your week!

  6. Love your closet Tamera and the way you put together such a variety of separates is amazing!!

  7. Tamera....seriously.....YOU ARE MY INSPIRATION !!!!

  8. Who knew a Forever 21 sweatshirt could be so versatile and glam?! I love all your ideas!

  9. I love everyone of your outfits and am LOVING this series you are doing. I am especially excited because I had just bought the very same sweatshirt and worn it with black skinnies and heels...I received tons of compliments...I was then wondering how else to wear it...and showed me how! I also admit I have been feeling a little low...seeing my youth fade as my weight shifts and things don't fit like they use discouraging. These last posts that you have done make me realize how self-absorbed I have become.....the more I live without worrying about superficial things the more joy I will have in my life which then radiates thru all the wrinkles! Perfect! :-) Thank you for inspiring me as always- Pam Atk

  10. Wow, wow and wow! what an immensely creative stylist you are. You took one piece and made so many different looks, each with a different mood and persona. I love the sun that is always in you pictures, from So. Cal and your beautiful smile.

  12. I love your neutral wardrobe, especially the wide legged pants. You have such amazing style.

  13. Oh you are a styling genius! Those looks with the wide leg pants are brilliant. Bravo!!

  14. So great, Tamera! Comfy but glam! Kudos!

  15. So creative and inspirational. I adore them all and keep on taking inspiration from your style!

  16. What fun! Your zest for life is the shine behind each ensemble.

  17. I love all the interpretations.
    That sweatshirt made a great jumping off point!
    I am going to try the look with the blazer which is more my pared down style.
    You remind me so much of my mom who is amazing at accessorizing like you!
    Maybe one day you will meet... Who knows :)
