I'm wearing a dress that I got at Target this past summer. I paired it with black tights and my Steve Madden booties. When you wear booties with a dress it will instantly add a different vibe to your look and make it a little more fun. I decided to wear this hat that I got from H&M because it really helped bring this outfit together and definitely added some funk as well.
I am also wearing my faux leather jacket with zippers. I think that jackets like these are a great addition to outfits. You can pair them with dresses like this or with a skirt and top. It will give you the edginess that you're looking for.
I threw in a little pop of color with this silver and turquoise ring. Throwing in some color with neutral tones is always great to do whether it's with your shoes, bag, or accessories. I also have on these hanging cross earrings that I found at Forever21. The finishing touch was this studded clutch that I got awhile back at Mandee. As you can see it's the little things like accessories and jackets that will switch up your look. If I wore this with a pair of pumps and without the hat and jacket then it would have more of a dressy and sophisticated chic look. Minor adjustments is the key to achieving this.
Enjoy your day and you have till tomorrow to email your photos for the contest!
