Red, white, and metallics.

April 11, 2013

Filed Under: Style

A couple weeks ago, I mentioned one of my favorite layers tips – to always wear more than one item on top, whether it be a cardigan over top or an added collar peeking out from under a sweater. In this post I am wearing a pretty minimalistic look, which is unusual for me. I think the emphasis in this look is on the color scheme because of the simplicity. It remains interesting because of the pop of red and the mirroring in the metallics.

    I’m really loving the shoes! Might also be warming up to the idea of red pants, too…

    Kayley, your hair looks so good. I’m in the process of growing out my bangs and their length is very cloth to yours, except I’m having a hard time accomplish a pretty look with them that doesn’t look like I’m growing them out. You know? Yours look so pretty, I’m wondering how you accomplish such a pretty side swept bang because I’m having the hardest time.
    P.S. I love your outfit too. :)

      I totally understand where you are at! Bangs can be tricky. When my hair is damp, I comb my bangs into place. Mine naturally dry the way that I want them to, but if you need a little more help with yours, I would recommend hitting them with a blowdryer. Make sure you point the blowdryer straight down so you are forcing them onto your forehead, then sweep them where you want and use hairspray!

  3. I love this look! I actually love every look of yours. You have wonderful and simple style. Always so beautiful. I also love your haircut.

    I agree with you. the simple outfit looks more sophisticated because of the details! Your hair looks very rock n roll. Something about that cut is edgy!

    Love those shoes – so unique! And I think you’re right about layering…usually more interesting to add something extra but sometimes minimalism looks great (like here).

    A simple, understated look is not easy to carry off too! But you paired it so well here with the red jeans and metallic shoes! I’ll be ‘borrowing’ this outfit heehee :)

    I am so loving your new hair. Kind of obsessing over it.

  12. Becky says:

    Kayley, my opinion totally doesn’t matter because I agree that haircuts are for you and no one else, but I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about the new ‘do at first. But I gotta say, it has grown on me, and I 100% love it now. It’s such a unique look, I think, but it suits you and is really adorable. Love these pictures!!

    Sometimes more simple looks pack the most punch! Love these red skinnies on you and those shoes are too awesome!

    Have a fab Friday!

  16. I think the red pants deserve to be the star in this outfit, so I love it with the simple top!

    This is my favorite outfit of yours so far, I think! Even though I normally avoid red, this outfit totally works on you!
