STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Rough Around the Edges

Style Advice of the Week

It’s never easy when looking to rock multiple trends in one outfit, especially two contradicting ones. Many have trouble finding a “flow” with their look and shy away from the concept all together. But when sticking to a few simple rules it isn’t as hard as it may seem when looking to pull off this bold trend.

Be sure to remember to stick to a consistent color scheme, as too many colors may appear sloppy. Black and white is a classic combination along with the combination of different neutrals. Keep the statement pieces to a minimum and make sure to add a few simple pieces to keep the outfit balanced. While many Fashionista’s struggle to be both edgy and girly, this Fashionista pulled the combination off flawlessly.

She was spotted wearing a feminine white lace shift dress underneath an edgy black leather jacket. LuLu's is known for having very soft and feminine dresses as NASTY GAL has a wide variety of edgy pieces including jackets, bags and shoes. This Fashionista wore a pair of opaque black tights and accessorized with a chunky studded cuff and delicate gold necklace. Accessories are one of the best ways to incorporate multiple trends in one outfit, and Forever 21 has a huge collection of all sorts of accessories. Studs are an easy way to add some spunk to a simple dress alone with anything leather (be it on bags, jackets, boots, etc). She wore a cross body Chanel purse and kept her hair soft while her bold red lips and bare eyes gives her an appeal that make her entire look extremely unique.

As intimidating as it may seem, the combination of two seemingly different trends can give you a whole new look that is unlike anything else out there. Have some fun when putting funky pieces together and don’t be afraid to try something totally out of your comfort zone!
