In an attempt to be different I often find myself scanning fashion magazines and blogs looking for new and innovative looks. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of stereotypically clashing pieces worked into a very flattering and put together outfit. Think lace plus neon or hiking boots with a maxi dress. The recent mash up of pieces seems to be trending these days and I think I like it.
This week’s Fashionista rocks a dark red lace dress with some grungy style boots, and as different as the two pieces are the look works very well! Her rolled down leather boots exposed some plaid detailing. Her dress is sweet courtesy of the lace and also super cozy as it brings out fall’s warm tones and knit textures. She wears a metal leaf necklace and lets the look speak for itself!
To achieve a look like this week’s Fashionista, definitely go for a lace dress like this floral dress from Free People in a color of your choice. Next, put on a pair of leather boots and go for something a little more unexpected. I recommend these black leather boots by Steve Madden. Put on the accessories you see fit, perhaps this bib necklace from Urban Outfitters. Voila! You have yourself a new and creative outfit with just three key pieces! As much as I value classic looks, it's always good to change things up. Sometimes when you reach for the two most opposite things in your wardrobe, you’d be surprised at how well they mesh. Opposites attract, right?
