On our model Mary Ellen we’ve gone all out with the glamour in a dressy look that would be perfect for any evening out or upscale party! We started with a Jessica Howard belted dress that is figure flattering in a rich brown. With a tailored piece like this, it’s easy to accessorize. So we added a pearl necklace, some interesting bracelets, and pretty pearl and gold earrings. In addition we went for the gold with the BCBG Girls heels also in trendy metallic. Before she leaves for her event, she checks the contents of her Etienne Aigner handbag in brown, tan and tweed, slips on her Jones New York faux fur mink coat, and tops off her ultra sophisticated look with some movie star sunglasses. All in all, a million dollar outfit for just pennies on the dollar!
The models you see in this blog are actual Goodwill shoppers who donated their time to participate in our annual Amazing Looks photo shoot. All clothing was selected from our very own Goodwill Store & Donation Centers and styled by Goodwill Fashion Expert, Bjorn Nasett. Hair and makeup was provided by Kitty Tierney of Impressions and all photography was created by Jessica Kaminski of Refinery Milwaukee.
All images for Goodwill's Amazing Looks prior to 2019 were supplied by John Grant Photography.
Devion demonstrates the very best of layering for fall and winter fashion. We started with a pair of great jeans from Zara Men, and then started adding on. His own black hiking boots gave us the idea for some urban flair with the rest of the look. A long sleeved white t-shirt forms a base for the colorful H&M striped sweater on top. Color blocking like this is a great way to infuse color and pattern into a simple jeans ensemble. Topping it off is a classic black trench in a car coat length. The one here is from Chaps and really keeps the look clean and impeccably stylish. Here we’ve added a belt, and that always makes any outfit seem a little more tailored and well thought out. This is a great ensemble that would be suitable for any casual occasion where a guy wants to stand out in a good way!
