Glam, casual rocker union

Sequins, stripes, and leather together? Why not? This outfit is one of my favorites for causal Friday. It sounds quite unusual, may be even like “I can’t believe that that works.” It works because the sequins are on the front of a black Micheal Kors cardigan and all dimmed down in black, the striped sweater just sticks to neutrals being all black with just thin stripes. I added my tough booties and my dance fashion necklace as finishing touches. The booties pick up the touch rocker theme once more, while the necklace repeats the glam theme. I kept my makeup neutral to pick up the casual point of the outfit. Thus, these elements support the “black color” to pull the outfit together. Another reason why this monochromatic outfit works is that the pieces have different texture and shine.

I wore my thick diamond-leopard patterned shorter jacket with my black beret, black gloves as my outer outfit. The Kate Moss for Longchamp bag picks up the brown of the jackets pattern. A black bag would have worked too, but I just liked it more with the tan colored bag. Sometimes the obvious is not necessarily the chicest option. It is the expected one, but the unexpected one is often so much more stylish, and elevates the chic factor a notch or two.
