STYLE ADVICE: Good Girl Gone Bad

It is easy to get stuck in the same pattern of wearing “safe” outfits that don’t push the boundaries of your personal style. Sometimes the most fashionable looks are born from mixing styles of clothing you normally wouldn’t put together. You can combine various competing fabrics or wear oversize items to create a unique and trendy outfit.

This Fashionista decided to take a cute school girl look and give it a twist by adding knee-high boots and an oversize jean jacket. Her outfit practically screams good girl gone bad. The black jean skirt and striped, short sleeve shirt are simple on their own, but they take on a whole new look when combined with the black belt and sheer black tights. She took the perfect risk when putting this outfit together, and it definitely paid off.

Not only did this Fashionista nail her outfit, but she demonstrated how having the right hair and makeup can add a lot to your look. I love how she embraced her edgy side with her messy blonde hair, silver hoop earrings, and bright pink lips. They complete the whole ensemble and give the entire look a carefree and dangerous feeling.

You can get a similar look or a completely new look by choosing a few pieces in your closet that you wouldn’t normally pair together. Mixing and matching outfits is where new style trends are born. Be daring with your style choices and don’t be afraid to wear what you want. At the end of the day, your fashion is an expression of you, so make the most of it.
