Thread Social has designed a pair of shorts that I’ve dreamed about every night until they arrived in my hand. The first look is one that can be used during the day while out with friends or just running errands, if you want to spice it up a bit. The Alexander Wang denim and leather is a favorite of mine. Sadly enough I don’t own it, but feel free to send me yours if you’d like.
The denim and leather jacket gives an added texture to the look with the shorts. Paired with flat sandals and a white t-shirt, you have a rocker chic look that’s perfect to take you from day to night.
With accessories you want to keep it to a minimum, so I’d settle for a simple gold bracelet. Remember, the shorts and jacket combo are your impact! For the watch connoisseurs of the world, I’ve added the completely black watch by Michael Kors. If you’re not a fan of the jacket you can always replace it with a wine colored hat like one of these from Urban Outfitters or Bloomingdales. The hats add a pop of color to the otherwise neutral toned look.
I’m not sure what I’m more in love with, the Alexander Wang jacket, or this silk sequined top by Balmain; my inspiration for this look was for it to come off as posh and sexy. With the silk sequined top, it adds a dramatic flair to the already eye enticing Jacquard shorts. I love the pussy bow (yes, that’s the correct word – feel free to giggle) detail on the shirt that can be tied on the side or in front. Paired with these McQueen T-bar sandals that add an almost six inches, you elevate your self to a new level, literally and figuratively. As before with the previous look, you want to keep the accessories to a minimum so I added a simple black clutch. You want all the attention on the details of the shirt and shorts so that is why I decided not to incorporate any additional accessories besides the DVF clutch.
So, whenever you’re out looking at a piece of clothing that you feel you won’t have too many options to go with just think WWMD (What Would Mikala Do)? Trust me, you’ll wind up finding yourself on the way to purchase that amazing item whether it be a great deal or that must-have splurge.
