End The Politics: This dress is so simple in shape and easy to wear, yet chic at the same time. The baroque print is subtle due to the dark blue on black. It is edged nicely with faux-leather binding around the sleeves and neckline. It’s great because this dress can be girly with sandals or pumps, or it can be edgy with boots with buckles or spikes etc. I have taken a more edgy look here by adding chunky heeled boots with large buckles and a trilby. Due to the weather at the time it also happens to have tights with the outfit because it was cold. This is perfect for chic, easy everyday wear.
Give Me Reason: This is similar to the last look in that it is a dark dress with a simple print, here it is more contrasting however. It is also similar because of my choice to make this look edgy rather than girly. The bird print on the dress is quite feminine and cute, but paired with chunky heeled, buckled, cut-out boots, black tights and a black trilby it becomes a much more edgy look. Again this is great for everyday wear because it is really comfy and simple. It could easily be smarted up with a black blazer or jacket and you could add gold jewellery; either subtle or statement. The great thing about accessorising this look is it is simple enough to take some statement pieces, but also has enough interest to only have subtle pieces that won’t be drowned out.
A Likely Story: This is a more grown up version of something I used to wear as a child. The dungaree-shorts are really cute and girly, which is added to by the floral lace top. however, there is an edge brought to this look by the dark tights, chunky boots, buckle hardware and leather jacket. I love taking cute and girly looks and adding some items to make them edgier because it makes the outfits far more versatile and quickly grows them up while still being feminine. This is a great casual look for everyday wear and having my hair tied up with a ribbon adds a finishing touch to this look.
