Sometimes, all you need is one solid shot of fierce to make everything fall into place :). Such is the case with Dana's recent outfit. Skinny denim+halter top is a so-fab-right-now combo. But what really takes this look to new heights is the studded shoes. Hello, Fierce! A dagger necklace, cuff bracelet and statement earrings are just icing on the cake. So, let's play and light our stylish fires with this idea of fierce-on-foot as the raison d'etre for a look. Because there are so few pieces involved, the outfit has to be built via carefully selected and balance elements. Take the event into consideration. For date night or a concert, do it Dana's way and pick a top with a bit of interest. Don't think full-on sequins...more like a fringe detail, interesting straps, cute pleats, a special fabric (like hammered silk), but done in a simple tank silhouette. You're looking for a piece that's not run-of-the-mill, but isn't a stop-traffic conversation piece either. Bottoms = skinny jeans. Easy enough. However, if you have a personal vendetta against skinny jeans (hear ya!) or just plain don't feel like them today, consider slim chinos or ponte pants. Color is equally non-challenging: black, black, black! It's edgy, it's chic, it's just right. And now, the moment you've been waiting for...the zing! ...The YAAAS!....The ha-cha-cha!...The shoes! Whaddaya got, babes? Studded leather pumps? Bring 'em! Lace-up sandals? Right on! Strappy booties? Hell, yeah! Crystal or fringe accented stilettos? Spot on! If it's prim, proper and chic ...leave it home. You're here for the fierce and nothing but the fierce...so, take no prisoners. Post-shoes, throw on a bauble or two if the spirit moves you. Or don't. It's all good. Now, let's say your event is a little more chill...lunch with the girls, paint night, etc etc. So, essentially, it's the same deal...just tone the whole thing down by going with a basic top...a rib knit body-skimming tee, a slouchy tank. Add a studded wrap bracelet to bring in an extra touch of flash. If you want to split the difference between the two options, consider something like the oh-so trendy off-the-shoulder blouse. It's chic and sexy, without being overly dressy. And, as always, fierce shoes will raise it to new heights. Hope you bust out your most ferocious stilettos sometimes soon! Rock that shiz, girlfriends! XO
