You know a dress is conservative when your grandma says it's a nice dress. This casual, floral sheath dress is pure elegance. Despite being under five dollars at Eco Thrift, it's beautiful and comfortable. The superstars clash with the concept of the entire outfit, being seen as more sporty than anything. I like pairing dresses with sneakers so I still look casual. The silk scarf compliments the dress in the best way with matching flowers and analogous color concepts. While the subtle yellow overpowers the dress, the azure blue pops from the scarf. The lone earring is just a statement that pulls the outfit together. It's all a "ready to meet your hip parents" look.
I was not completely prepared to take pictures on a random trip to one of the most iconic cities in the world. I think this outfit is a hodge podge of pieces, but it mostly worked out in my favor. The dress was a Freestyle find, which I paired with a long sleeve by The Weeknd, since it was a chilly day in Chinatown. The basic white Adidas superstars were comfortable; I could break an ankle in heels. The lucky part of the outfit was the red necktie matching the red lettering on my sleeves. It's excellent coordination. However, the denim jacket did not completely flow with the outfit. The roses matched the necktie, but the wash of jean clashed with the murky green shade of the dress. Even though the colors clash, the outfit as a whole was a good one. A bunch of different clothing styles with unkempt hair is the new trend, or so I would like to think.
If you've never seen Indian jewelry before, it's as extravagant as everyone says. I blended my cultures together by wearing Indian wedding jewelry with American clothes. Doing so made me feel like a power woman, especially with the last shot. Off the shoulder tops are coming in hot so obviously off the shoulder jumpsuits must be the next best thing. The sleeves on the jumpsuit add an air of casualty to the ensemble. The color red is quite rich, and a very popular hue in the Indian culture. This outfit was wholly inspired by @aankita.b, a culture blending mogul with her style being, usually, some elegant shoulder baring piece and eye catching Indian jewelry. Now all I need to do is find Aladdin from this decade.
First and foremost, mesh and summer go together like a melted popsicle on a sidewalk. The material is light and very breathable. The snakeskin shorts and floral appliqués definitely clash, however don't detract from each other. I made this outfit thinking it would be a bust with mesh over shorts. Oddly enough, the color palette from the shorts match my wedges perfectly. I don't normally leave the house bearing so much skin, so I was slightly paranoid. Wearing mesh with only a bralette was a flagrant move, but the valley heat calls for risky business.
To be completely honest, this outfit was much more chic then I originally planned. Wearing it made me feel like a million dollars. The skirt, which I found in my grandmother's closet, is so formal and the bottom reminds me of bell sleeved tops, so of course I had to wear it. To stay in the same color palette, the tan mesh bodysuit was a good piece over the black, simple crop top. I was very skeptical about pairing mesh with such a skirt, however the end result was much better than I expected. And my mom really liked it.
To explain this outfit, I just like black. It's my favorite color to wear and goes with everything. With a nose and a septum piercing, I already look like I'm up to trouble so naturally paired with a leather jacket, I give off that "don't mess with me" vibe. The neck tie wraps the outfit together by making it look like I should be playing the electric guitar. The blue suede booties really go with anything and they balance the red necktie nicely.
