STYLE GURU STYLE: Military-Chic

When they say two is better than one, believe it! The brilliant designers behind Rodarte are Kate and Laura Mulleavy (yes…they’re sisters). I gained a ton of inspiration from their spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection. There were multiple pieces throughout their collection that not only inspired me but they also amazed me.

My inspiration and awe lead me on a mission to find the coolest military jacket I could find. While I was browsing through some of the sales racks at Forever 21, I found a needle in a haystack when I stumbled upon this camo jacket that had some beautiful beading along the shoulders.

After finding this jacket, my whole outfit came to life. I threw on a basic black cami and added one of my favorite statement necklaces that I got at an Express factory outlet store. This necklace is my go-to statement piece whenever I’m feeling a little edgy. It gives my outfits some edginess but also adds a bit of glam, which I love!

If it were up to me I would wear high-waisted shorts from American Eagle Outfitters forever! They are not only super comfortable, they are also so versatile. You can choose to style them like I did, by tucking in your shirt or any other way you’d like. To finish off my look I decided to wear some black combat boots. The boots add to the level of edginess that I was trying to achieve.

Dressing edgy is not something I would’ve done two years ago, but like I said in my STYLE GURU BIO, college has broadened my views on a lot of things, and fashion is definitely one of those things. Throughout the rest of my STYLE GURU STYLE posts this summer, you will get to see how diverse my style has become!
