We made it to another Friday y’all! Today I’ve got an outfit of the day post, so keep reading to see more!
Top – Young and Reckless
It’s been super hot where I live lately, so I thought “Heat Wave” was the perfect name to use and I think it fits with the outfit too.
I love this off-the-shoulder top from Young and Reckless because the mesh ruffle reminds me of Spanish dancers (especially with the red lipstick and gold hoops!), and I feel like I could go out dancing with this outfit! You can also wear this on the shoulders, so that lends versatility to the top.
The skirt is from Topshop and it’s easily my most worn skirt. I’m not one to wear skirts often, but this black skater skirt goes with so many different things and it can be dressed up or down.
In this case, I dressed it up and I like the way it flatters the body. Since the skirt fits well on the waist, it gives the illusion of a smaller waist and flares out like an hourglass silhouette.
Plus, since the top is cropped and the skirt is high-waisted, it can cover the midriff area or allow some skin to peek through.
Skirt – Topshop
These are my newest heels that I bought to replace the ones I had been wearing for the last 5 years. I only own one pair of heels and I thought it was time to update them. I really like the laces and cutouts on them!
I chose to go with wavy hair here to create an effortless and relaxed feeling. I also pinned up one side with a braid to have more of a hairstyle and to slim down the face a bit.
Heels – Payless
I feel like this outfit is fun and flirty; it follows the off-the-shoulder trend and the cutouts on the heels are super in right now too!
You can wear this outfit for more formal occasions; I would wear it for a night out, a fancy dinner, or even to something like a wedding reception by modifying the makeup to look a little more natural and adding elegant accessories.
I also think it’s the perfect outfit if you want to go out and feel a little sexy. Another plus to this ensemble is that the top is a little loose and the skater skirt is flattering enough so you have room to eat if you do decide to go out to a dinner!
Food is important after all haha, and this outfit isn’t restricting. It’s comfortable to wear and the top doesn’t need to be adjusted often, which is definitely a good thing!
Earrings – Forever 21
For the makeup, I went for a gold and brown smokey eye, winged liner, and red lipstick to ramp up the overall look! If you want an elegant look, I would choose a peachy/pink lipstick and light eyeshadows!
Lipstick – Rimmel The Only 1, “One of a Kind”
I’ve only worn this outfit out once, but I would wear it again in a heartbeat because I love it so much!
And this concludes today’s OOTD post! I hope you liked it; thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll hopefully see you lovelies back here on Monday!
