Stripes & Zippers

The idea of mixing traditional with modern/edgier has always appealed to me; I've always thought that it's a great way to give your wardrobe a twist. I love the zipper detail in this skirt which is what actually gives it it's edgy flair and the purple color fills it with attitude. Eventhough the blouse is super traditional it's simplicity and really thin straps give it a modern touch which goes perfectly with the skirt. Both items are super versatile, the skirt would also look amazing with a white t-shirt and some cool loafers, and the top would look amazing with some highwaisted white shorts for a really traditional look. I kept in tune with the edgy stye by choosing the cut-out booties and graphic bag. Hope you like this look!

Let me know what you think!
