Recently, I’ve had the itch to add a little more glamour and allure to my daily life. Most of the time, there isn’t much room for me to look absolutely dazzling when running from the beach to the grocery store and then to the gym. And since there are few invites to formal galas heading my way, I discovered that the best way to satisfy my craving was a dose of girly meets street style. Who doesn’t want to be dripping in bright metallics, shimmery materials and glossy buckles?
First off, I simply adore the fact that this Fashionista is rocking a cool, monochromatic look of a familiar color that we all love and wear: gray. However, she amped it up a notch by matching the classic gray with bright silvers, which added the ultimate glam factor.
You can tell that this Fashionista likes to add a titch of beauty and flair by the way she casually styled her comfortable, metallic gray T-shirt with luminous, drawstring silk pants. The shiny silver accents that weaved in and out of her shirt caught every angle of light and tied in well with the bright sheen of her pearl-like track pants. Instead of pairing her outfit with a strappy sandal for summer, she threw in something unexpected and edgy — her black, leather slingback sandals that are finished off with high-shine hardware. This Fashionista didn’t forget the final touches either, as she threw on a rad, tarnished Falling Whistle necklace, a brilliant silver watch and her big, black tote. Even though this Fashionista was all about the glam, she continued to balance the look off with some edginess by leaving her hair and makeup natural.
If you also want to style yourself in something glamorous, sporty and edgy, all at the same time, be brave. I love the monochromatic look, especially in lighter and cooler colors. Right now, I’m obsessed with the all white look that so many of our fashion icons are sporting. Try pairing a lightweight, relaxed white top with frayed white, denim shorts. Open-back shirts are always feminine and add a touch of elegant beauty. Like this Fashionista, you can throw on a pair of black booties or even an edgy black sandal to give a little oomph to the look. To add that final splash of complete girliness and glam, throw on glittering chandelier earrings, a bedazzling statement necklace and even a dramatic bracelet.
What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK?: “My first priority is always comfort. If your clothing doesn’t fit well and you don’t feel good in it, you won’t be at your best. Save your money for that one magical item that when you try it on, it instantly makes you feel on top of the world. One beautiful item that fits perfectly and feels amazing is much better than ten ‘good enough’ compromises.”
