Ack! I was supposed to share these hi-res photo set from my Preview 'Style Profile' (for the May '13 issue) feature weeks ago but my brain went on hibernation mode. Please forgive me. This is definitely a tell-tale sign of aging. Haha! But moving on...all of these looks revolved around one summer du jour piece: a boxy and cropped top (which I wasn't prepared to bare my abs, or lack thereof, for) designed by local fashion designer, Sassa Jimenez. The considerations I had when I was thinking through the different looks that I had to come up with for this piece were: 1) I had to showcase the top in all of its glory, 2) I had to infuse a bit of layering in the styling and 3) I had to integrate my signature edgy style in the mix...and in true Kookie fashion, this means going for a grunge or all-black mood. The first look in this set is actually a wild card. I took a chance and went with a "sweet" look by pairing the cropped top with an ultra-feminine dress. I prepared 6 looks all in all, two of which didn't make the cut.
Here they are:
OUTFIT DETAILS: (1st Look) Dress: Topshop / Shoes: Mango; (2nd look) Leather Trousers: Pixiemarket / Shoes: Stella McCartney (black version HERE); (3rd Look) White Button Down: Romwe / Trousers: Marni x H&M (similar HERE); (4th Look) Plaid Top: Folded & Hung / Shoes & Bag: Alexander Wang; (5th Look) Pants: Romwe / Shoes: Stella McCartney / Earrings: ASOS / (6th Look) Skirt: ASOS / Peplum Belt: The Ramp / Shoes: Zara / Earrings: F21
Which look is your favorite? Let me know! :)
