Details: Top, Max Studio. Jeans, Nordstrom. Booties, BCBG Max Azria. Necklace, Banana.
What it was for: Sunday bridal shower for a friend.
Why it works: I am calling this Tasteful Rock Chic. The blouse-y, feminine top balances the skinny jeans, as well as the rocker-ish vibe of the the boots, necklace, and jeans together. Black shoes with black pants lengthens the leg- and sometimes, that's just what needs to happen.
What it needs: Frankly, nothing.
Dress it up: Was already pushing it for a brunch event in the burbs, people.
Dress it down: Switch high heeled booties for flats, lose the necklace.
