(This style idea was inspired by Everlane‘s Shirred Mini Dress (sadly discontinued now), paired with Wraptillion’s Garland Earrings. When I’m sketching, I love using my custom croquis (a personalized fashion sketching template) from MyBodyModel to “try out” new outfit ideas!)
I’ve never really seen mini dresses as part of my personal style… but sketching out this floaty little black one is making me wonder if it could be! I always like something spiky and edgy to balance out a softer, sweeter look (the Garland Earrings here), and something sleek and modern (simple, classic black mule slides would do the trick for summer.) That took this style sketch in kind of a Mod + Goth direction, leading me to… Breakfast at Tiffany’s goes Goth! (I kind of love it.) So many possibilities… Classic wine nails, the Trellis Bracelet, cuban-heel stockings or a great ankle tattoo… Sometimes it’s so fun to play outside my personal style lane and try something new!
Decisions, decisions… Sometimes I just can’t decide which outfit ideas inspire me most! Classic Circling earrings, or botanical-inspired Mechanical Garden chandeliers? Rich mahogany brown, or simple black? For this style sketch, I kept things simple with one cap-sleeve modern tee dress, in two easy-to-wear neutral colors (similar to Everlane’s Luxe Cotton Side-Slit Tee Dress)…and then went wild with earring choices! (Let’s not even start with shoes… I really think you could wear anything from sneakers to heels with these!)
No matter what season it is, chances are I’m wearing black! It’s chic, classic, edgy, and looks great with my currently-purple hair. For this summer’s outfit ideas, here are a few easy dresses paired with edgy floral earrings from my Mechanical Garden collection, including what to wear to date night on a balcony, a modern picnic, or a Goth-style day at the beach. I really love Universal Standard‘s knit dress designs — they’re so flowy and modern, and I love their inclusive sizing! I hope you enjoy these style sketches!
Dreaming of summer? I’ve been sketching some new outfit ideas, mixing new pieces with wardrobe staples and classic earring designs from my Circling collection. Here’s what to wear for a weekend brunch, to a summer art festival in the city, and out for a date night on the water, whether you’re headed to your favorite waterfront restaurant or a tropical vacation. I really love Universal Standard‘s knit dress designs — they’re so clean and modern, and I love their inclusive sizing! I hope you enjoy these style sketches!
Above, my style sketch of the Geneva V-Neck Dress by Universal Standard in navy, paired with the little modern dangles of my Overlaid Earrings for just a touch of sparkle. This easy, summery outfit looks perfect for date night on a beach or a lakefront restaurant, don’t you think?
Of course, these classic modern earring styles aren’t season-specific, and you don’t have to buy a whole new wardrobe to put your own outfit together! Whether you’re looking for bold statement earrings or minimalist dangles, try the Circling collection.
