We had a rare streak of warm weather in February, and while yesterday wasn’t quite as warm as the day before, it was still nice enough out to merit wearing something a little lighter and more casual instead of bundling up in a coat and sweater. (Have I mentioned how completely over winter fashion I am? Someone burn all of these coats. I need skirts and shorts and high heels and sunlight.)

 

I’ve always thought it was important to remember that having a personal style isn’t a uniform; I like getting dolled up in dresses as much as the next girl, but I also really love streetwear and a nice casual outfit. I also really like adding in elements like glam necklaces or t-shirts with a dramatic back (like the one above) to step things up a notch.

Here are the details for this look, I’ve included retail prices but as always be sure to keep an eye out for sales and promotions, or use this as inspiration for your own style!

  • The Shoes: My Van’s are the discontinued Adder sneakers, but I love the Tonik skate shoes by DC as an alternative for $55.00 USD if you like the chunky, black-on-black style.
  • The Necklace: Mine is by Vanity, but the Team Layer Necklace by Modcloth is an excellent alternative for $19.99 USD, or you can layer several of your own necklaces (or wrap around a single long chain!)

I finished this off with a pair of black leggings, but you could also substitute some black pants of your own, or whatever color you’d like. Go make this look your own!
