Our model Makeena was the winner of our Amazing Looks Model Search last year. In this month’s look we did one of my favorite things, a layered look using multiple pieces. Makeena herself brought some slim fitting jeans of her own to the photo shoot. We started our layering then, from the bottom up using these as a nice neutral base to work off of. The cordovan brown boots add some flair without too much fuss, and they have some nice classic details. I like a slouchy rounded toe boot like this because it’s tough but chic! Animal prints always add a real wow factor to any outfit. So we went for it in a big way with this black and white leopard print mock turtle. Its slim fit and the slight stretch make it skim the body without being too tight. A great foundation piece for wearing under a very fitted jacket like the one she has on. Makeena's own cropped jacket had a military vibe and just enough detail with the buttons to help tame the noisy graphic print. A fantastically large statement ring, fleur des lis shaped earrings and a cute leopard turban make this cool and totally fun outfit that sort of reminds me of Gwen Stefani doesn’t it? And there you have it! As we nudge slowly towards spring, remember this good illustration of how to stand out in a crowd with some laid-back rock star sass!
