Look of the day – Feminine + A little Edge
Posted on January 26 2010
Marc Jacobs recently said to Instyle Magazine, “I’m a big believer in wearing whatever you want, whenever you want. No one dictates fashion to the women I know.” I couldn’t agree more. I’ve always thought that fashion was more about the confidence and less about the clothes. The confidence to mix bold colors, the confidence to wear the biggest cocktail ring or even socks with platforms…The idea is to express yourself and enjoy yourself. I love to mix unexpected pieces, old and new, different eras, different styles, etc. Lately, I’ve been pairing a lot of feminine pieces with edgier accessories. I especially love a fun flirty dress with a leather jacket or a leather cuff. Check out GG’s Taylor Momsen in the above photo with the silk dress and leather cuff. You can create this look for less by adding the Woven Faux-Leather Cuff ($12) from Rue de Chic.com to any of your dresses for an edgier look.
