The inspiration for this look came from street style photos I see during fashion weeks of Fashion Editors. I mean, if I were to choose the top five pieces you should own to look like a Fashion Editor, these would be on the list. Fashion Editors do a great job at mixing unlikely pieces together and it somehow works! Every time I see a street snap of them I think to myself ‘I would have never put those pieces together’. I’m trying to adopt the mindset that if I don’t think it would go together, try it anyways. The boldest piece in this look of course is the leopard face sweater – a little secret, this sweater actually itches like crazy so I most definitely won’t be wearing this for long periods. It was on sale, so I just had to have it! I’m really into platform slip-ons lately and I love them. They’re super comfortable and I think of them like a dressy sneaker because it really dresses up your outfit. When I don’t want to wear heels, but I still want a little bit of height, this is my go-to shoes. Get style inspired and shop the look below!

I’m a sucker for mini dresses and skirts. With my height they’re a great way to make your legs look longer. For a sexy feminine look I would pair mines with some sandal heels to show off the legs. In this look I decided to go with the over-the-knee boots to give the dress a more stylish edge. This shirt dress actually doubles as both a top and a dress, so very versatile. There’s just something about over-the-knee boots paired with wide brim hats that just works. Topping it off with the hat was a no-brainer. Even though this look is a ‘fashion’ look, it is actually sexy too. Showing just the right amount of skin between my knee and thigh leaves a lot to the imagination. Shop the look below!

Loose is sexy too! I love pairing over-sized pieces with heels like I did here with this Adidas Number faux leather top and heels. Taken from one of my favorite quotes by Marilyn Monroe, I like my clothes to be tight enough to show that I’m a woman but loose enough to show that I’m a lady. I chose ripped jeans to add a little edge to the look. For the most part, I make all my own ripped jeans, or I will buy them a little ripped and then distress it a bit more. I finished the look by just holding a hat as an accessory instead of wearing it. I would wear this look to a concert, a night out with the girls or just running errands on the weekend.
