Louise XI 120 stretch-suede over-the-knee boots (if only the average girl could afford them). Despite the hefty price tag on those boots, the purpose of including them in this style guide is not to entice you to punch a huge hole in your wallet, but rather to use it as a point of reference to help you style an outfit similar to this. Since our waffle knit sweater is bulky (in a good way), we thought it was unnecessary to wear anything on the wrists and thought a statement ring and ring party would suffice. We completed the outfit with Xplosive nails like Formula X for Sephora's top nail polish coat in Bombshell and a grungy gold fold over clutch that elevates this look above and beyond into the perfect polished edgy chic.
here under the "You Need Clothes to Layer With!" slideshow. In this outfit, we pay homage to the new military chic minus the camo (which was sooo last year). We layered Kaii's Military Style Vest on top of our Military Chiffon Blouse with our Side Leather Quilted Leggings, styling it with a multistrand necklace from Vince Camuto that's evocative of bullet casings. Since the leggings have that leather texture, we thought that a wide brimmed leather hat would be a great complement. For an added pop of color, we added some red plaid pumps that adds a certain je ne sais quoi that uplifts the rather darkly-colored outfit. The trademark green and red Gucci emblem was too perfect for this outfit, especially with the gold charm trompe-l'œil print that matches well with the necklace and the overall outfit color scheme. Top it off with red satiny lipstick and gold/green shift nail polish, this outfit is polished, edgy, and perfect for both day and night.
