So, you knew this, right? The min I saw this outfit of Steph's, it started screaming "Inspiration Board!". Ok, not literally, cuz that would just....weirdness. But, yeah. This is pretty much me, daily. So, how do you get my/Steph's look? Step one: basics. BAM. Black top, blue jeans. Curve-kissing on top, slim/skinny on the bottoms. That's your 101 canvas. Step two: fun part! Add your fierce. Stephanie's kept this look quite professional by topping it with a blazer, but you can give it a more laidback, or rocker, or ladylike or off-duty model vibe by going with a different topper. I'm a huge fan of twill jackets. They're not generally easy to find, but worth searching for, as they give you the look without the price. A twill biker or band jacket will toughen up a look without the expenditure required by leather. You can find stud or zipper-embellished pieces, which amp up the vibe but are still more elevated than denim. Don't go for anything too soft and flowy; this look depends on the structure of the jacket for it's pulled-togetherness and stylish zing. If you want to stay a bit more casual, choose a collarless jacket. Stay with black to keep the boldness in this look. For baubles, I like the idea of putting a period on the fierce thing by adding a glam-goth-tinged pendant. Finish it off with your most achingly, crave-worthy heels. No sweet bow or round-toe pumps or ballet flats! Booties with studs, booties with lace, booties with studs AND lace :), leather peeptoe booties -metal accents encouraged: chains? Myriad buckles? Bring 'em. Patent t-straps. Or multi-strappy sandals.You're looking for footwear that nods at harshness, like the edge of a blade...shiny, but possibly deadly. And if you don't own anything like that? Eeesh. You're pushing me *wry face*. Your pointiest-toed whatevers. If you must. :)
