RVA Street Style
Recently I have been noticing that previously tailored looks are taking a turn for less fitted silhouettes and fun accessory choices. It really is all in the details whether or not an outfit is successful, and every piece matters from the jewelry to the shoes.
This is a great example of a complete head to toe outfit. Notice how everything reads well together when you look at the outfit.
The green center fold V-neck sweater is by Free People. The drape of the sweater is fantastic and very flattering. There is no bulk to the sweater making it summer friendly. The addition of the black cami under the sweater creates a fantastic contrast that is very aesthetically pleasing. Notice how the sweater is knotted at the hip. It is a small detail but it completely changes the end result of the outfit. By cropping and controlling the shape of the top, a more tailored look is achieved.
The gray shorts are a great length for summer and present another unique color to the ensemble. By belting the shorts, yet another detail is woven into the look. Notice how well the greens, browns, grays, and blacks read together. By creating an outfit consisting of Earth tones, the look is soft and effortless.
These Lucky Brand platform heels are AMAZING! The soft brown color is so great for the summer and compliments most any color you pair with them. The criss cross straps and buckle detail make them fun and interesting. Most importantly, the shape of the shoe is appropriate to wear with shorts. Some shoe styles like stilettos are not ideal for wearing with shorts due to the severity of the look.
The stone necklace is a great length for the sweater. It is positioned high on the neck so that the eye is drawn up. It goes along with that relaxed tailoring i mentioned before. By choosing a necklace that hits above where the shirt lies, a distinct line is created for the outfit.
Another great accessory is the watch and bracelet combo. The large faced gold watch is trendy and adds some power to the look. The gold compliments this earthy look beautifully and adds some glamour. It really is important to match the right color jewelry with a look. Choosing gold or silver can completely alter the final look an outfit has. A departure from the traditional female watches with small faces and bands is refreshing.
