Style Tips: How to Blend Feminine and Edgy
It can be difficult having multiple style inspirations, and not being sold on the idea that you can pull them off. One of the hardest mashups is blending soft, feminine silhouettes with hard, structured pieces. Though tricky, it's a trend you can rock and feel fiercely femme!
Ruffles on Top, Pleats on Bottom
This mesh top and leather skirt may not seem like the perfect pairing at first, but it works. Just think Carrie Bradshaw meets the TBirds (where are my Grease fans?). I loved this pleated faux leather skirt because it gave it personality. Look for feminine and edgy products that have lots of texture. Frilly mesh and leather blend feminine and edgy. It's all in the Details...
Not into Mesh? Try Lace and Leather.
I love this combination. It seems like the perfect marriage of textiles. Many stores are carrying great Victorian-Style lace tops and leather skirts (JCPenney, Endeavor Boutique, City Chic, etc), I personally love lace on top, with a solid structured bottom. Playing with different textures can be a total fashion win...or a flop, so be careful not to over do it. Styling Tip: We've seen a lot of celebrities wearing leather jackets and long, lace gowns. Adding a leather jacket or leather accessory (boots, backpack, belt) tones down the cuteness factor, and ups the edge of your look- Great way to turn down the femme.
Glam it UP! Sequins and Leather
The ultimate look. Grab your disco dress, leather boots and of course- your leather jacket. Hit the nightlife scene in style. I love that you can achieve this look without breaking the bank. Here are a few options that I loved from Asos. Styling Tip: Wear your leather in COLOR! I'm loving the personality a red or hot pink leather jacket bring to the scene! Not only will you be on trend, your look will be sure to turn heads! Let your look be a conversation starter....and shine!
Get out and try the trends! I can't wait to throw some sequins on this Fall! Watch for me :) Enjoy today! xoxo-Sierra
