Some times you want to rock a different going out look, maybe even look a little rock, but still feel classy AF. It’s almost like one of those split personality perfume ads, ‘I am vulnerable, but strong, sassy yet soft, expensive but cheap’….jokes any perfume ad that has those slogans is pricey as hell.
So what were we trying to achieve? Well we decided to call it Urban Luxe. It’s definitely feminine, but edgy with contrasting animal prints, block colour, metallics and a cooler version of our normal dress code. Yeah that’s right we’re wearing sunnies when there’s almost no sun, what of it! #CashMeOutside
Who are we kidding, we’re pretty sure model and singer Luize made it look smokin and we just came along for the ride. Keep reading to find out how to put this look together without breaking the bank.
The Bomber Jacket
To nail Urban Luxe, you firstly need an ‘edgy’ animal print jacket with black trim. Ours was actually an op shop find, however ASOS rocks some animal bombers with ‘tude.
The Fringe Dress
Think modern day flapper (not slapper!) and find an edgy version of the 1920’s look that will have you twirling away into the night! This type of dress works in white or black. If you are in the US, Canada or Europe try HERE and for the rest of the world we recommend having a look at Missguided or ASOS.
The Edgy Clutch
Let’s face it, to look cool you need to have a fall back for your hands…so, in enters the edgy clutch! It needs to be big enough so its content intrigues others (is that a gun in her clutch or is she happy to see me) and makes you look edgy and ‘farshon’ when you hold it with both hands. The reality is you’re harboring foldable flats for when your feet are killing, you’ve spent all your money on cocktails and are faced with the potential of walking home (yay free exercise- said no one at 4am). When it comes to clutch inspo. we can’t go past Nordstram Rack!
The Cool AF Sunnies
Quay Australia sunnies have been killing the game lately and it’s easy to see why- on point sunglasses for cheap! It’s all about reflective lenses in cool or metallic colours to make those sunsets really stand out. Having trouble seeing? Doesn’t matter, you look too damn cool and your #SelfieGame will be strong…if you can see which way your camera lens is pointing! Just make sure to ditch them when the sun has completely gone, because let’s face it, that fashion faux pas is as bad as the dude that wears a cap backwards to club.
Zebra Print Heels
Show the world you’re a rebel without a cause by wearing a contrasting animal print such as zebra on your pumps! There’s just no taming some people. We’re feelin the affordable options available at 6pm.com. This pairing takes Urban Luxe to the next level.
It’s all well and good to look cool AF, but don’t forget the most important weapon…to wave your ‘did’ hair in the air, like you just don’t care! You’re quirks are what make you hot, so don’t forget your best accessory, your approachable ‘tude gurl! High-five, now get out there and sass.
