This look was inspired by Amanda's pink hair. So shoutout to all our ladies with colored strands. The gals with the pink, purple, green, or blue hues. We wanted to give some tips on how to style when your hair is basically it's own accessory.
Amanda is a blonde underneath, with that said we wanted to give her a completely different look even in comparison to what she would normally wear. Our focus was to take advantage of her "pink look." Black on black or white on black are excellent combinations always. The colors naturally balance and can provide a chic, classy, and clean look wherever you go.
Starting from the top we used two separate pieces of outerwear for this look. One was a faux fur vest and the other, a white leather jacket. Essentially, we just wanted to show both looks to inspire creativity when you try for yourself. Underneath, Amanda is wearing a long-sleeved, oversized, turtleneck dress. Naturally, this piece gave her a boxy look so we needed to do something that would compliment her physique. Take a look in our gallery above and you will notice a safety pin in the back. We used the safety pin to tighten the waist and provide a more fitted appeal. Not to mention how cute the safety pin looks! But wait, did you notice her hand candy? Is that piece not just, super cool at the very least?! Amanda just so happened to have that piece and now with this accessory her outfit makes a statement!
One more thing: do you ever walk around in the mall and see that pair of shoes that are perfect for the outfit in mind? Well Amanda had those perfect pair of shoes in her closet: heels that completed this chic punk look. We're thinking her shoes say "Well, hello there..." Either way, her shoes completed the look. The chunky 5" heel on a platform with the silver accents makes you take a second look.
Challenge: Amanda is just like you, and this week, we'll keep it simple. Try wearing black on white or black on black, go for one accessory and try a bold shoe. Be inspired and share your creativity with us by #andieandaj on Instagram or Facebook!
Till next week,
