Style Advice of the Week

Black acid washed jeans have become the front-runner of some of the edgiest pieces in many of our wardrobes. The rugged look created by the speckles of black and gray helps to channel a tough look for any outfit. Paired with sleeker black pieces like today’s Fashionista, the perfect balance between chic and edge is created.

Start with a pair of acid wash skinny jeans. Stray away from blotchy looking washes and try to look for a pair with a smoother and more evened out wash. This Fashionista chose a lighter gray shade which helps to contrast the heavy black pieces in her ensemble. This may be something to consider. If you don’t want your outfit to look too dark, balance it off with lighter colors. For outerwear, stay warm with a moto coat like the models did for Diesel Black Gold‘s fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection. Look for one that has leather details to give extra oomph to the whole ensemble. It’ll help add points to the glam department and that’s always a plus. As for shoes, go with an over-the-knee boot. It’s super sleek and will keep your legs warm from the bitter cold. But if you’re a little too petite to wear such a tall boot, slip into a knee-high boot instead. It’ll look just as great without making you look shorter than you actually are. Rachel Zoe showed how it’s done in her ready-to-wear collection for this fall. It’s definitely a great look!

With a bit of edge and glam, you’ll be ready to inch your way into this holiday season. Good luck!
