Why I love it: She used the same accessories (the necklace, bag and booties showed above) and created four different but equally stylish outfits that are wearable, edgy and chic, yet so easy to recreate.
What I learned:
Look for details when hunting for classic pieces: black ankle booties with fringe, a versatile bag with cool zips and detachable strap, a simple gold necklace with a sleek pendant…
Don’t be a slave to trends. One of-the-moment piece is enough to update your old basics, like her oxblood embellished jeans above.
Again, it’s all about balance: breezy mini skirt balanced the heavy layered top; simple T-shirt balanced the eye-catching jeans and fringed booties. Balance different styles too: a girly mini skirt, or an elegant up-do (yes, don’t forget the power of hair, make-up and nail) can soften up a cool girl look; a casual T-shirt or a simple pony tail can tone down eye-catching bottom pieces.
We already talked about how to spice up a black ensemble, here we learned one more: mix different textures to make the monochrome look more interesting, like the leather, suede and lace you see above.
