STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leather and Lace

June 9th, 2015 at 2:10am

Do you ever feel like there are certain pieces you can only wear for certain occasions? For example, you can only wear a lacy black dress at night. Stumbling across this Fashionista, you can see that it’s not the case. What’s great about this Fashionista’s individual style is that she took pieces that you wouldn’t think would go together and rocked them.

By keeping the color scheme neutral and focusing on accessories, this Fashionista created a great look. She took two very contrasting pieces, a lacy black mini dress plus a pair of black riding boots, and combined them into a fluid outfit.

Another great thing that this Fashionista did was focus on proportions. By pairing a long sleeved mini dress with a pair of tall boots, the amount of skin showing was a perfect amount. It was flirty without being overly revealing. She also chose accessories that made a statement but didn’t take away from either main piece of the ensemble. This Fashionista chose a glamorous statement necklace and a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses as the main accessories. She then added a few neutral colored bangles and some silver rings to complete the look. These accessories complemented each other and the outfit, which is what you want your accessories to do. You never want your accessories to be competing with the rest of the outfit.

This Fashionista’s outfit was classy and sassy. It was also especially perfect for this “June gloom” we’re having. Who says you can’t wear black in the summer?
