How To Make A Classic Look Edgy

How To Make A Classic Look Edgy

Classic pieces should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. They are timeless and will never go out of style. However, when it comes to styling them, you should always combine them with something more trendy, current or edgy. This makes the item look new and not aged. This is actually one of my favorite ways to dress or how I would describe “my style” on daily basis.

Today’s look is a good example of taking a few classic pieces (my turtleneck sweater top and velvet pants) and mixing them with edgy pieces like (black double breasted faux leather jacket and a leopard scarf).

I first styled our Black Faux Leather Double Breasted Jacket for you here. It is made out of a very soft vegan or faux leather. The body is semi shaped with welt pockets. It is double breasted, which is a detail that has been trending for jackets and blazers for a while now and is continuing this fall/winter.

The novelty gold metal buttons on the front and on the sleeves make the jacket even more special. All the button holes are keyhole and are functional buttonholes which you see in top quality jackets and blazers. It is also fully lined in a trendy black and ivory stripe lining.

Today I am wearing the jacket with our Camel Turtleneck Front Seam Sweater, which I originally styled for you here. I am calling this top a sweater because it is a bit oversized. However, you can easily wear it as a top, as I have done for today’s look. The camel color is very pretty but we also offer it in a cream color and you can see that piece here.

It is made out of a really wonderful soft knit that is so soft against the skin. The body is boxy and long with the ribbed turned back turtleneck. It has a seam in the front as a design detail.

For accessories today, I am wearing our beautiful Brown Black Tan Brushed Leopard Print Scarf Shawl. This scarf/shawl is not only a great leopard print, but it is super soft to touch. It is also available in a black/gray combo and you can see that piece here.

To finish off the look, I have added our Gold Chain Necklace with a Matte and Shinny Gold Pendant. This necklace looks great over the camel turtleneck top and it picks up on the gold buttons of the faux leather jacket.
