I can’t explain how much I love leather and studded things. Leather always looks powerful, and studs have that cool rocker esque feel that I really enjoy. Luckily for me, Atlanta is still pretty cold so leather and studs are still approved =) Below is a look I created for a dinner a few weeks ago. Its simple, yet has elements of edge. If any of the pictures are showing up sideways, its because there is a formatting problem between Apple and WordPress. They are trying hard to resolve it! In the mean time, click on the picture to see it normally.
I stuck to two colors for the entire look- black and heather gray
I tried this look with pumps, but it made it too “pretty” as opposed to stylish. So I stuck with these stiletto booties
My favorite part of this look is the bib necklace. I love how well it covers up the entire chest area, and that since there is so much silver on it, it matches the studded clutch
I chose to have the sleeves of the gray sweater show at the cuffs rather than hiding them to show more pops of gray
A textured blazer (here, in lace) always adds a fun element to the look
Here is a close up for the studded clutch
To make the look glam, I chose foiled eyeshadows (Makeup Geek)
This look utilizes a few different elements. Mixing textures, (lace blazer, leather leggings, and studded clutch). as well as a monochromatic palette for the most part. There are just two colors used- gray and black. I love the simplicity of it, but the textures add that edge I so love. Another way to make this look even trendier as opposed to soft would be to tie up the hair in to a slick ponytail so all eyes are focused on the necklace. I chose to go with metallic, foiled eyeshadow to make my eyes really pop.
