I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying “less is more” at one time or another, and while attempting to style this look I came to the realization that it couldn’t have been more true. I knew off the bat these statement making jeans would be the piece I would have to build around, and that proved to be much harder than I expected. Because the pants are black there were a lot of different directions I could’ve gone in, however I didn’t want to grab an item that clashed or competed with the overall eyelet detailing. After making my rounds back and forth to numerous shops I was about to completely give up and then I saw it, a piece so basic I couldn’t believe I didn’t think of it; a HOODIE! I’m not going to lie, while I did feel pretty silly for not thinking of this option sooner, I was beyond relieved that I was able to finally end my search. The sweatshirt added an effortless “chill” vibe that I felt perfectly balanced the eye-catching and edgy trousers. One thing I’ve learned when wearing bold pants and being on the shorter side, is that they can sometimes make your legs look a bit “stumpy.” To solve this issue, I chose to wear a sleek pair of black heeled booties to elongate my overall appearance. While I was definitely pleased with the outfit as a whole, I still felt something was missing to tie everything together. Since I chose to keep my top and shoes simple, I felt that I had room to add an interesting accessory and it didn’t take long to find this embellished metallic bag. In my opinion, the silver hardware really helped to highlight the details on the jeans while at the same time giving the sweatshirt a bit of excitement. I have a lot of favorite looks but this one may actually take the cake for me! I couldn’t help but feel so cool, confident, and comfortable and that, as far as I’m concerned, is the makings of a perfect ensemble. Until next time!
