Consider this look my attempt to push the boundaries, as I have felt like I’ve been at a creative stand still for a little while now. You may or may not be able to tell from my lack of consistency that I have not felt like myself or inspired lately. I am only sharing this in order to be transparent with you. Know that while I may try to act like I know what I’m doing, I usually don’t. Remember that everyone is simply faking it until they make it.
Alright, with that aside, I love this look that I’m posting today! This outfit gives off the perfect amount of Parisian vibes while remaining true to my edgy and dark style. I centered the look around this plaid blazer, as plaid is one of the true constants of fall and winter fashion. After attempting to thrift a blazer, I found this one on Boohoo.com. I added a berry mock neck top under for a bit of contrast, then kept it simple with a black denim skirt and my black platforms for some height. The important thing to remember when layering a blazer over short bottoms (such as jean shorts, a dress, or a skirt) is to make sure that the blazer is either the same length or longer than the bottoms you are wearing with it. This will prevent your body from being broken into 3 segments, which tends to make anyone look shorter and stumpier. I topped of the sophisticated feeling with an edgy beret (yes, they are back!) and a black cross-body bag. Don’t forget to add a red lip for the ultimate fall look!
I hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope this outfit inspires you to test your limits and try something new! Please feel free to like and share with anyone you know!
