An easy sure-shot way of scoring high on Cool is to learn from the ones who do it the best: The boys.
Stealing inspiration from their laid-back and comfortable dressing let’s start with a clean canvas: a pair of black skinny jeans and a basic white T-shirt. There plenty of routes to their style low-down but a tried and tested one is to couple the over-sized blazer and a baseball hat. Nothing says boyish charm like a baseball hat and the blazer adds a sense of structure to the whole look without making it too casual. Ditch the anticipated sneakers and throw on a pair of elegant heels to juxtaposition the look. This simple switch will take it from plain to polished without half the effort. I played it safe here by sticking to a nude palette for the heels.
Also, you could fold the hem of your pants to take the spunk in your outfit up a notch.
Finally, wear your self-confidence like a badge and find yourself being the next cool-kid in your social circuit.
I would love to hear what items of clothing you borrow from the men in your life and your thoughts on how this look has been styled and shot, in the comments section below. I will see you in the next post!
