The Modern Lady: V-Day Look #2

Sunday, February 9, 2014

Add some leather to your favorite feminine dress for a unique Valentine's Day (or any day) look that's both edgy and classic. 
Sweet & girly meets edgy moto for a flirty rocker vibe. 
Add some elegant and subtle charm 
Juxtapose a neat nipped-waist dress in the season's hottest color - blush - with a casual chic coverup, like this vegan leather moto jacket.

[dress: BCBG, jacket: Express, heels: Target, earrings: Ann Taylor, necklace: Tiffany & Co., black bracelet: Ann Taylor]

I love playing with contrasting colors, textures, and styles, and this look combines the extremes of two very different personalities, which is completely fresh and modern. 

This is such a relaxed yet refined take on dressing up. While wearing tonal shades of rose and soft pink is delicate and demure, throwing on some black leather and studded ankle strap heels is sexy and sophisticated; the essence of the modern-day woman!

  64. Your fashion blogs are really inspirational. I get tons of good ideas to try for class and even the weekends. I think this outfit is the right mix of girly and edgy. However, I think that there are a lot of bracelets and maybe there could be fewer, but that's just my own opinion. You look fabulous!
