STYLE GURU STYLE: California Grunge YSL

Black leather jacket, black crop top, blue skater skirt. These are staple pieces that most ladies have in their closet. They can be worn everyday with a pop of color and accessories to complete the outfit.

Confession: I love to mix navy and black together. Hold on, before you freak out, let me explain… choosing two colors that are from a very similar palette is out of the comfort zone of a lot of people. The thing is, there are no rules in fashion. Black and blue look so chic together, especially when you add black tights! Don’t be hesitant to mix and match. If you add a few accessories it can totally complete or change the look of the outfit. If you are trying for a more edgy look – pile the accessories, if you are looking for a more casual outfit—add a few bracelets and a simple necklace. Shoes also tell a lot about an outfit. During the day I would suggest cute suede flats. They are comfy and versatile for a long day of work or class. For a night out with the girls, just throw on your favorite heels or heeled boot and you are ready to go.

This post is inspired by the Saint Laurent fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection. I did not go overboard but instead took pieces of inspiration from the runway show.

I wore mostly black and blue, similar to the Saint Laurent Show. Using these basic colors I added my own accessories (NYC beanie or a black fedora hat) to create a street style look. Also, I am really into knee-high socks that I paired with studded boots.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match black and blue—it’s an interesting palette. When it comes to accessories, more is more!
