Whenever I’m styling a shoot, a private client, or even myself I always come back to these pieces when I want to add some edge to the look. The beauty with these items is that you can wear them all together, or style them a la carte to up the cool factor for your outfit. If you don’t already own these things, NBD! They should be pretty easy to find at an affordable price.
Here Are 4 Items That’ll Make You Look And Feel Cool.
Over the summer, I had secret envy over a purchase I found for a client. It was a beautiful, rose gold chain link necklace — just like one I had that broke. You could definitely go cheap on this item, if you choose, but be warned that you may not get the same lasting power on the necklace than if you shell out a little more cash. (Note: mine broke.) This one would work well.
I love pairing this almost sloppy vibe with dressier things like a silk skirt or trousers. My most recent addition, a Radiohead concert tee, feels like precious cargo in that I don’t put it in the dryer to maintain it’s pristine edge. How about this one for you?
If only I had held onto all the leather jackets I’ve had through the years. First, there was my older brother’s original moto from the 80s with the words GBH (a band) written along the back. Then there was my cropped version that I wore in middle school. And then the numerous variations for the next 10 years. Regardless, I only own one right now, a bomber cut, and I put it on whenever I need to rock and roll. This one is good.
When I was a kid, it was inevitable that I’d wear my new sneakers straight out of the store. That’s how much I loved getting new kicks! I still have the same enthusiasm, though the downside with this style is the lack of heel. Sometimes I’m fine with the flat look, but other times I prefer a platform (not wedge!) to add a few inches. Either way, the statement is always casual cool. This pair is fresh.
