First impressions are key, especially in this day and age. Although we all know looks are not everything (AKA: don’t judge a book by its cover), it definitely can’t hurt to try and bring your awesomeness from inside onto the outside. With bringing the inside out, comes a challenge. Whether it is a job interview, a lunch with a couple new friends or a new class, the balance between an edgy and classy look has never been trickier.
This Fashionista has got the balance down. Her outfit is professional, while edgy and classy. Her gray blazer inspired vest gives a business vibe, but when combined with a denim button-down, it portrays a certain effortless feel. Her unique black textured purse gives a subtle touch of personal style. For bottoms, she has a sleek pair of black waxed denim jeans and for shoes she has an amazing pair of colored oxfords. I cannot express how much I love these shoes. I know they are not for everyone, but talk about bringing your personality into your outfit. I love how this Fashionista uses the monochromatic nature of her look to set the stage for her metallic maroon oxfords featuring blue laces.
In unknown and new situations, this Fashionista’s outfit is prime inspiration. Keep it edgy and classy, but still add some of your personality. This Fashionista does this by strutting in a personality packed pair of oxfords. Choose your own staple accessory like this Fashionista, and you will be sure to have confidence and style, with a balance of course!
Spotted: The fall 2014 ready-to-wear Red Valentino collection showcases a variety of oxfords with a fairytale theme. The collection features a retro but still modern pop art background, giving the feeling of a comic book. This is a creative collection you cannot miss.
