Tank & necklace c/o Style Lately (here) | Forever 21 jacket, skirt, & heels | Prada sunglasses

Hi there! I apologize for being slightly delayed with this week's posts! I celebrated my second anniversary with my boyfriend last weekend and decided to take a brief break from shooting. On the bright side, I have a lot planned for the upcoming weeks! Stay tuned :)

Today I'm styling a graphic tank and triangle necklace from Style Lately, an online-only store created by Megan from Style'd Avenue. The top represents three of a girl's weaknesses: lipstick, heels, and late nights. What better way to style this personality piece than with an even bolder color palette? This is my first time attempting a red monochrome outfit, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. 

Side tip: when pairing red-on-red, try matching the shades as closely as possible. Don't be afraid to be bold!

For this look I also tried to create a balanced mix of edgy and feminine pieces. I love the contrast between the zipper details on the moto jacket and the girly flared skirt. This combination is a perfect representation of my personal style. Which one are you -- edgy or girly?

  1. You pull off a red leather jacket quite perfectly! And pairing it with the red skirt was a great idea and I definitely see the feminine and the edginess in your outfit. I am girly :)
