I’ve always been the sporty chic – definitely NOT the graceful gal. In fact, I remember my gymnastics coach in the early 90’s convincing my mom to enroll me in ballet classes in an effort to improve “my lines.” Simply put, I was terrible. I was good at suiting up in the garb but that was about it (insert laughing emoji)! Well, since my days on the dance floor are few and far between, I have to get creative when it comes to dressing like a dancer. This is as close as I’ll get to being a ballerina and wearing a tutu!
So how is a sporty chic supposed to dress? I wish there was a straight forward answer. Although I am the epitome of a girly girl, I LOVE an edgy outfit. Last week my friend (and store owner) said to me, “you’re edgy but you wear pearls!” She hit the nail on the head. I love leather and lace but appreciate the feminine things in life too. Today’s look is the perfect hybrid of the two.
With waist lines on the rise, crop tops are becoming wardrobe staples. When I came across this faux leather version I knew I’d get a ton of use out of it. It’s the perfect amount of edge to balance out my ultra feminine side. When I do not wear it with skirts, I will wear it with pants. The fit is true to size. I am wearing a size small and the back is adjustable with bra-like hook and closures. Now about the tutu skirt…the inspiration behind this outfit post! This polka dot skirt is what edgy girl’s dream of. The asymmetrical hem adds an appropriate amount of funk to an otherwise classic piece. I love black on black but it’s also available in pink if that doesn’t suit your fancy.
