STYLE GURU STYLE: Crochet OK

The Sibling spring 2015 collection was simultaneously feminine, quirky, edgy and avant-garde. The diverse runway featured graphic mini skirts, risqué two-pieces and ruffled petticoats. One particular outfit that stood out to me was a crocheted bra top and skirt. This outfit evoked a granny chic vibe that I attempted to mimic with my outfit. My crochet top and denim shorts appeared less matchy matchy and more appropriate for everyday wear.

My top, purchased at a thrift store, was an authentically vintage find with a label that reads “hand made by Grandma.” It definitely has a one-of-a-kind feel, not to mention it is one of my favorite color palettes: red, pink and white.

I decided to dress my top down for a casual day of running errands. By pairing it with denim shorts, I was able to obtain a subdued look that was less kooky than Sibling’s clothing.

To grunge down my look even further, I decided to add a pair of Frye engineer boots. Their bright red hue coordinated with the red in the top, while their studs and edgy style added contrast to the sweet, granny-chic vibe it evoked.

I love shopping at vintage stores, so this outfit further demonstrates my flair for the eclectic. I take pride in putting together unique outfits, and this is definitely one of my favorite looks.

It combines a vintage top along with inexpensive shorts and a pair of name-brand boots. I can confidently say that nobody else will be wearing this same outfit. One of the most difficult fashion feats to achieve is looking simultaneously unique and casual, and I think this outfit masters that vibe.
