STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Toughen It Up

Super flirty and feminine outfits are great and all, but nothing can replace that iconic “bad girl” look. This summer, put your frills and ruffles away. Instead, grab your leather and studs. Even if it’s just an act, toughening up an outfit can really influence your mood and boost your confidence.

This Fashionista is wearing a navy blue motorcycle jacket and a boxy plaid shirt. She kept the bottoms comfy with some basic black leggings. She spiced up the look with some heeled booties. She topped off the entire look and made it a bit more casual with a black knit beanie.

The navy blue is a great way to steer away from the typical black motorcycle jacket, while the lapels and silver detailing create some interest. The red plaid is a great pattern that subtly complements the jacket and the whole aesthetic of the look. The heeled booties are a great addition to an outfit for a night out, but if you’re looking for something a little more comfortable, switch it out for a pair of combat boots or sneakers.

You can dress up or down a motorcycle jacket depending on how you feel. It’s an extremely versatile piece that can take you to almost any occasion. Can’t let go of that breezy and ruffled dress? You can simply put the jacket over it for that extra sass. Want to look even tougher than this Fashionista? Take it a step further and put on some burgundy or wine colored lipstick.

This Fashionista’s sweet smile definitely contrasts with her killer outfit. Take her lead and toughen up your next outfit with a motorcycle jacket for that extra confidence boost.
