Inspired By: Trail Blazer

Let’s get one thing straight; we love laid-back off-duty dressing just as much as the next girl. However, there’s just something about taking your standard jeans-and-tee combo and elevating it from hanging out to night out with very minimal effort. We’re all about that as well! 

Today’s street style inspiration is an excellent example of taking something as traditionally tailored and put together as the blazer and shaking it up for weekends or a night out. Pair with loose, messy waves and some red lipstick to show off the more carefree side of dressing up!

Inspired By: Back in Black

The beginning of a brand new year is leaving us feeling rather inspired to take it back to the basics – and what’s more cool, more bare-bones basic thank classic black? Or perhaps last night’s festivities, coupled with all the glitz and chaos of the holidays, is making you want to get back to a more no-fuss, no-nonsense way of dressing…and we totally get that.

Our first street style inspiration for 2015 perfectly achieves that effortless dose of style starting with a great moto jacket paired over a black sweater. Paired with loose black trousers and shiny black flats, this easy-come-easy-go look is ready to take on a stylish new year.

Check out our take on this easy back-in-black look below!
