Polished Edgy Chic (PT. 2)

Part 2 of our Polished Edgy Chic #KAiiSTYLE guides are here! And trust us, they're better than ever! For this post, we've mixed both high AND low pieces that appeal to many of us that can't dish out over $1K for some accessories, no matter how desperately we may want to. Either way, we hope all you fashionistas out there will use our guides to help you style yourselves differently and to inspire you to try something new, even if it's outside of your comfort zone.

(1.) Leather sleeve blazer // Kaii, (2.) Large clip-on earrings // H&M, (3.) Knit hat // H&M, (4.) Printed fine-knit modal and silk blend scarf // Alexander McQueen, (5.) Military-style chiffon blouse // Kaii, (6.) Leather mix flair skirt // Kaii, (7.) Glossed leather loafer-style pumps // Lanvin, (8.) Boxy bag // H&M, (9.) Studded patent-leather pumps // Valentino, (10.) Just acces grad ring set // ASOS, (11.) Blue bijoux tuxedo cocktail ring // Max & Chloe

We love how beanies can instantly tone down a rather formal outfit, so we added a simple knit beanie from H&M paired with two choices of shoes: Valentino studded pumps, or Lanvin leather loafer-style pumps. Choose either one to determine whether you want an edgy or chic look. If you do opt for those Lanvin pumps, we would also suggest adding thigh-high or knee-high socks to warm your legs up to complete this perfect fall outfit.

(1.) Jeweled Arm Blazer // Kaii, (2.) Necklace // H&M, (3.) Leather trimmed hi-low long tank // Kaii, (4.) Electric lightning bolt studs // Forever21, (5.) Rhinestone bracelet // H&M, (6.) Lust for lacquer lip vinyl in Kissability-shimmering lilac pink // Marc Jacobs Beauty, (7.) Celestials nail polish in Black hole - burgundy and charcoal glitter shift // Formula X for Sephora, (8.) Double knuckle ring pack // ASOS, (9.) "Hotter Than You" clutch bag // ASOS, (10.) Pipenouveau calf hair pump in zebra print // Stuart Weitzman, (11.) Side vegan leather quilted leggings // Kaii
"Hotter Than You" couldn't be more fitting for this edgy-chic look. Our jeweled-arm blazer is accompanied by our choices in accessories, specifically the rings, bracelet, and nails. For an additional accent piece, we added zebra print pumps that takes this outfit to new heights. Since we went heavy with the accessories on this, we chose a nudey lilac pink lip lacquer from Marc Jacobs' new beauty line. 

(1.) Hammered gold-plated bib necklace // Kenneth Jay Lane, (2.) Gold-plated necklace // Kenneth Jay Lane, (3.) Sleeveless leather trim & hemmed dress // Kaii, (4.) Round-frame acetate sunglasses // Miu Miu, (5.) Zip it gold-tone earrings // Marc by Marc Jacobs, (6.) Salome Cocktail Ring // Mania Mania, (7.) Earthy beaded stretch bracelet // Forever 21, (8.) Yvonne clutch in Tortoise // Pour La Victoire, (9.) Zipper-heel suede zip-front bootie // Tom Ford
Black, gold, and brown. Is there a better color combination that's more tres chic as this? Our straight-line silhouette dress with intricate leather detail was the perfect blank canvas to paint gold with. Since the dress is simple, we layered a bib necklace with a tusk/horn pendant both from Kenneth Jay Lane. As we were putting this look together, we couldn't ignore these gorgeous Tom Ford booties with zipper details. We honestly were about to faint by its magnificent beauty...and its price. These bootie-licious booties are a whopping $1150.00 at Bergdorf Goodman that is definitely fashion-lust-worthy, but isn't I'm-willing-to-drain-my-bank-account-worthy....but we digress. Since we have a lot of attention focused on the shoes and the necklaces, we kept the arms and fingers simple with single statement pieces that go amazing with Pour La Victoire's tortoise Yvonne clutch. Although fall isn't the sunniest season, we thought we'd add those tortoise Miu Miu sunglasses to add another ultra-chic note to this beautiful black and gold fashion symphony.
