I'd Wear That

I'd Wear That, Street Style, Style Inspiration

This outfit worn by Alexandra Golovanoff brings to mind that great Leonardo da Vinci quote - "Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication." Each component of the look is  classic and simple on it's own and when paired together, the entire ensemble is eclectic, elegant and effortlessly chic. The ruffled neckline fuzzy sweater and button front denim midi skirt strike a balance of softness and structure while the sparkly necklace and red mary janes add a statement making pop. I love how the embellished shoe strap subtly calls back the crystal strands. Those shoes are fabulous! I want those shoes. I have always had a thing for red shoes. Since we've been on lockdown I've joined the no pants club and have been spending my days in dresses. I've also been slowly cleaning and re-organizing my closet. Even though I currently have no where to go, it's been fun to shop my own wardrobe and come up with new styling combinations. I'm sure I have all the elements to create my own version of this outfit.

Although I don't think I could pull off this midi length skirt being petite I do agree this is a great outfit and I love the statement accessories with it with the shoes and necklace! :)

Hope you are having a great week :)

The same for me! I definitely would wear this and I have also a faible for such looks. The red shoes are the cherry on the cake :)

That is such a chic outfit and one that I would wear too. The only thing I would change is the skirt length, shorter so it's just slightly below the knees.

This mid length skirt it so my style is sophisticated like to wear it with 4 inch heels because I'm short.

I do like a good mod length skirt. I remember my mother had a denim skirt just like the one she is wearing and I couldn't wait to grown up and wear it. This is a great outfit. The statement necklace and the ruby red shoes take it to a whole new level. I also like red shoes, maybe it is a Wizard in Wonderland thing for me-Although, as I recently found out, the shoes weren't red in the book, just the film. I do understand why they made them red for the film, it makes so much sense as those red shoes really draw in the eye.
