One of my favourite ways to create unique outfits is to juxtapose different elements and textures to create a look that's pretty and feminine but with an edge — a technique that this Fashionista pulls off with aplomb! Her mixture of nautical striped long sleeved tee, slinky silk leggings and edgy studded biker boots work incredibly well to create a look that is both stylish and effortless.
Nautical chic stripes are a great way to inject a touch of summer into your wardrobe, but this Fashionista takes the basic staple of a striped tee and adds a rock 'n' roll edge with an all black lower half. You can find summery striped tees like this Fashionista's everywhere from Zara (including this cute embellished version) to classic French favourite label Petit Bateau.
The next thing that drew me to this Fashionista's look is her amazing boots. The chunky silver studs and stompy shape create a great contrast with the sleekness of her leggings and toughen up what could otherwise be a straightforward pretty look. The boots have the added bonus of being practical enough to run around in all day! Finally, this Fashionista has pulled her look together perfectly with a pair of retro style Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses, the perfect accessory to any rock chick look, and essential now that the sun is shining!
Simple, undone, effortless — I think of this as the rock chick's perfect spring look!
Hint: If the idea of tight leggings and a tee makes you nervous, try a longer length or oversized top instead. Comfortable, casual, but still gorgeous!
