Ya know when you want to be preppy and edgy at the same time? I seriously feel this way ALL THE TIME, especially in the winter. It really is a catch 22, although classic preppy styles will always have my heart, it’s hard not to pick up some the latest edgy trends. This is why I often mix preppy styles (like this crisp oxford) and edgy pieces (like leather leggings— UNDER $50).

This has actually become one of my go-to outfits lately. It is professional enough for work but also so comfortable because….leggings duh! I seriously never wear pants anymore!

I always love a classic oxford shirt, always so versatile but this one is especially special because of the perfectly stitched sequins along the seams. Of course as soon as I saw this, my 10-year old, sparkle obsessed self went crazy! Since sparkles can be a little much, I always pair this oxford with black leggings, and in this case leather leggings! Even though I usually hate the black and blue combination (reminds me of a bruise), this ensemble goes well due to the grey metallic buttons down the center of the oxford.

Let’s accessorize! First thing first, I know its terrible to have a black hair elastic on your wrist for pictures, BUT are you really a girl if you don’t have a hair elastic on your wrist– so just get over it. Otherwise, I paired this outfit with my classic stack– including my Michael Kors gold watch and an the Stella & Dot renegade bracelet (a totally must-have!). I also chose my gold & black Legend pendant from Stella & Dot, matching perfectly with the black metallic buttons and leather leggings. Even though it’s not typically my style, this necklace is one of my favorites of the Fall collection– I seriously find myself picking it up ALL THE TIME. Lastly, I wore my black leather OTK boots, talk about all black errethang. I really prefer wearing these babies with this outfit but it was far, far, far too cold!

How do you mix preppy and edgy styles?

    love the mix of edge and preppy styles! I tend to add studded jewelry items or accessories to classic pieces.

    I love the look of leather. For some reason, I never wear it. But I love the style on everyone else.

    You look very nice in this outfit! You could also wear a thin belt to make the shirt look kinda like a dress with the boots. I loved everything though! I don’t know if I would be able to pull those boots off though. They probably would take up my whole leg since I’m so short.
