Edgy Chic

Dressing up cozy, casual classics by giving them is a little edge is my go-to style philosophy. Mixing a little bit of rock ‘n roll with a touch of soft and feminine gives me something that is edgy and classic — the best of both worlds. When people asking me, “what’s your style?”, I tell them, “edgy chic” or “West Hollywood razzle-dazzle.” Most people can at least identify with the former, so let’s go with that.

On the daily, my favorite looks are ones that combine casual elements with cool-girl undertones. Think: ripped jeans with soft, cashmere sweaters or a slouchy tops with structured skirts. When Banana Republic sent me a few of their fantastic new Fall items recently, I couldn’t wait to pair them with a few funky, unexpected accents to create that edgy chic vibe for daily wear.

Joining an awesome pair of leather joggers (i.e. fancy sweatpants) and lace-up heels (oooh-la-la) with the Banana classics was the perfect marriage of laid back, effortless style. I love this look for a casual evening out or Sunday lunch date with the girls.

What a great weekender outfit, right? Mix it up with ankle boots or fun flats for an even more comfy daytime ensemble. I also love the notion of this look with a sleeveless top or tank beneath the sweater vest for you fortunate warm weather dwellers.
