WHAT TO WEAR: Conquering 2017

The end of the year always feels like everyone is trying to squeeze the best of everything into a few short days before it starts all over. I caught this Fashionista who was ready to walk out of 2016 in style and walk into 2017 ready to take on everything.
She kept the whole look interesting with pattern mixing, and pops of metallic hardware.

Her look brought together a lot of unexpected elements into a versatile and composed outfit. She started with an off-white, lace crop top. Cropped tank tops are an essential in the summer, but when incorporated into winter outfits add a feminine and almost boho feel to any outfit. She paired the top with a pair of brightly patterned, high-waisted trousers. This Fashionista knows that the lace pattern of her top is no limitation, and picked a bolder print to keep the pants as the outfit’s focal point. She topped off the outfit with a brown leather jacket to keep warm and bring all of the outfit’s neutral tones together.

She accessorized with a quilted black leather tote, perfect for throwing in extra shoes, toiletries, and a 2017 agenda. She elevated the look with high heeled, black suede booties with gold chain accents. This Fashionista says her matte black giving key makes an appearance in all of her outfits.

This look is easy to recreate with any printed trouser, culottes, or even joggers. Pick a color pallet, whether that’s neutrals, pinks, or cool tones, and tie it all together with a brown or black leather jacket. Flats or sneakers can be used to keep the outfit casual for the day time, and heeled booties or lace up pumps can be used to dress up the look for the evening.
