STYLE GURU STYLE: Leather and Stripes

May 31st, 2017 at 2:00am

Every outfit always has that one main piece that acts as your first building block to a great outfit. In this case, I am talking about my white and blue distressed beetlejuice-style jeans from PacSun.

I decided to completely break the whole “black and blue don’t go together” rule and paired my striped denim with some all-black pieces to pull the whole look together. Since these are high-waisted jeans, any style crop top can complement them perfectly. I chose to wear a black crop top that rocks two of my favorite trends—one being the off-the-shoulder trend and the second being the choker that comes attached to the top as well. Since I love layering and chokers, I decided to add a second stretchy choker that I was obsessed with back in elementary school and now am in love with all over again!

Being that this spring day was a bit on the chillier side, I decided to throw one of my closet staples into this outfit mix: a black moto jacket. This leather jacket has zippers, buttons, and quilted sleeves to add a bit more detail to the look. Depending on the temperature and occasion, this outfit works both with or without the jacket!

I am all about the pointed-toe shoes, whether it be pumps, boot heels, or flat boots. I wore these Kanye-inspired sock booties by Steve Madden (that were only a fraction of the price, of course) to make this outfit look a bit more mature. Last but definitely not least, I threw on these rose lens aviator sunglasses to finish off my look. I have been absolutely obsessed with these muted lens sunglasses, and I love to see the other way that people rock them too!

If you’re ever hesitant about sporting a bolder piece such as these striped jeans, just pair them with some simple colors to create the perfect outfit!
