How to style: the unique and dramatic dangling modifier

While it's easy to get hung up on the latest trend or the season's It bags, style really isn't something that can be bought, unlike GRAMMAR’s unique and dramatic dangling modifier. Without a doubt there are editors and insiders that have their share of chic gear, but the reason why some become icons and inspirations is because of how they put the whole look together. At the end of the day, it's about how you style it — and styling, is free. It’s uniquely you - and we like you.

With this in mind we've zeroed in on three essential elements to consider when styling our dangling modifier — minute factors such as adding a pop of color, or being selective about the wash, length and cut of your jeans can have major impacts on how your outfit looks. By the way, these aren't seasonal or of-the-moment, these are timeless tricks that will continue to work for your benefit.

Belt It

The elongated silhouette that the dangling modifier captures is exceptional on taller women of any size. While a button-down can feel stiff at times - this one won’t. Add yellow for a pop of color with a multi-wrap vegan leather belt from CRYSTALYN KAE.  Be sure to knot the belt in the front but slightly to either the left or right. This will ensure you are accentuating your torso, while simultaneously flattering your waist where it is most slender.

Denim Is Lit

Pairing a statement piece like the dangling modifier with denim adds an air of nonchalance. It's the easiest way to inject a little cool factor into even your most classic shirts. We suggest pairing it with a high rise, cropped or tapered denim pant, such as these from Noorism. Button-downs might feel too dressed up for this easy vibe, but as you can see we changed the feel with this laid back, medium/light wash denim.

Mule It

Notice how, that by choosing a pant with a cropped ankle we allow the mules to also shine. White mules pair nicely with our natural and understated palette. The hues and snakeskin detailing on the heel are sophisticated and fit in perfectly with our color scheme, therefore avoiding center stage. Instead, these mules are a discreet, "I didn't even think about my shoes at all" look that puts the focus back onto the dangling modifier. The result is cool, elegant and perhaps a little undone.
