Welcome back to another look! Today I am styling this super cool skirt by Armani Exchange! (Shop it here) I saw it on the mannequin while walking around the Houston Galleria. The subtle color changes in the skirt is what made me stop, analyze, and walk into the store. Given that I have not gone inside Armani Exchange in YEARS I was surprised by the designs of their newer collections. For a couple of years they totally lost their magic for me. The clothing became lame and boring and nothing that made me feel good while looking at them. Fast forward to today I am completely sold on this subtle but fun skirt. By the way there are also a pair of iridescent sneakers in their line, I may need to get those too.
For this look I wanted to let the Armani Exchange iridescent skirt have the spotlight. So I added this boxy button up top from Zara. Currently sold out online. Such a horror story. But I listed similar styles below. I applied the handy dandy fashion style of loose on top and fitted on the bottom. The top is super loose and boxy giving the juxtaposition to the fitted skirt. The white creamy color of the top lets the skirt have all the attention but because of the structure the top can also be used as a statement piece. For a more minimalism look you can pair a loose boxy top with denim, either shorts or jeans work, or a pair of slacks for a hype kind of look.
Isn’t this backpack so fun?! It’s by Aspinal of London. The brand is more well known in Europe and it’s a Royal family favorite. This little metallic micro trunk handbag is on my wishlist. I bought this metallic pink backpack years ago. This backpack is one of my favorites of my personal collection. One of the main reasons it’s in my favorites is because of the quality. I’m obsessed with metallic bags but there is a catch to them, if the metallic finish is not properly embedded into the leather then the metallic finish will eventually wear off. Saddest story every. This has happened to a couple of my bags and it breaks my heart. This one though has lasted. I wanted to add the pop of pink to bring from femme into the black and white look. Although we have the iridescent of the skirt it still gave black and white vibes without the backpack.
Aren’t these sneakers amazing!? I love when Nike puts a fun and shiny trust to their sneakers. The Air Force 1 sneaker by Nike is iconic, this holographic version is fun but still clean at the same time. There’s nothing better than a fresh pair of white kicks. They’ll never be that same shade of white again, at for me not. I need to up my sneaker cleaning game.
