Last week I talked about finding your personal style, no matter what it might be. And while I love the simplicity of last week’s look, this is an example of how going over-the-top can be just as flattering and chic. This Fashionista is staying true to herself with this cool, rock n’ roll glam look.
What struck me about today’s Fashionista was her larger-than-life personality and her confidence. No one can pull off skin-tight liquid leggings without a good dose of self-assuredness, and this Fashionista was working them. Her lovely olive tweed blazer gets a touch of edge and glamor from the fur collar. A blazer and skinny pants are a classic, cool silhouette that you’ll find on runways, celebrities, and the fashion in-crowd year after year. My favorite thing about her outfit is the texture: the contrast between the fur and the slick leggings creates interest and adds depth. Because this Fashionista’s style fits her so well, it doesn’t seem forced or silly, and her outfit becomes an extension of her personality.
Try punching up your wardrobe this week with edgy accessories and contrasting textures. Jeffrey Campbell booties can add a touch of rock n’ roll glamor to any outfit, and velvet is always a sought-after fall trend. These grommeted leggings from Edge of Urge are truly unique, and feather earrings from ASOS complete the look.
