Night Out: Urban Utilitarian

Hi stylish friends! Today I’ve put together a fun night out look perfect for summer in the city.  I started with an utilitarian style top and keeping with the structured feel I paired it with a sleek miniskirt.   I personally like to stay within more of a neutral or earthy color story when styling utilitarian pieces – navy, grey, beige, rich reds/oranges, and deep marigolds feel especially modern. The deeper earth tones will  look especially great come fall.

I wanted to add some softness and fun to the look because it is summer after all!  Fringe sandals just seemed like the perfect pairing to add movement and  a little softness to the otherwise structured outfit.   The bag pairing was an especially tough choice, I went back and forth on it, but in the end I decided to take a fashion risk and  have fun by adding  a flirty feather bag.  It adds another soft element into the mix and gives the look a little more femininity.  Same goes for the peek of  fringe from the lace bralette.  This bralette acts more like a lacy camisole and was made to be seen – totally opaque and longer in length.  By adding in some softer, flirty and feminine elements I balanced the stricter vibe of the outfit and made it a little more fun! Hope you like it!
