My style point of view has always been about mixing basics with the unexpected. I am drawn to feminine pieces and adding tougher elements. I love mixing in menswear and creating unique spins on my everyday looks.
Here are some of my favourite style tricks:1. Invest in versatile accessories that add just the perfect touch to make your everyday look more interesting.
My favorite is layering with this Liz Clairborne utility vest that I picked up last year and perfectly complements my style point of view (feminine pieces mixed in with boyfriend basics). I am getting a lot of mileage from this vest.

|Gave this sugary sweet chiffon dress just the right amount of edge.|

Update those boring pencil skirts by pairing with unconventional tops. It creates the right proportion and a hint of the unexpected.
|For a preppy tomboy vibe, wear with knit and accessorize with tougher hardware – flat ankle boots and chunky silvers.|
|A 90s girl at heart, I paired my favorite flannel with a denim skirt. Add some funky details – like knotting up the shirt, which also helps streamline the silhouette.|
