Everyday Edge

We have all seen the amazing outfits in magazines that are amazing, but you'd never be able to wear them on an everyday basis. I always try and take inspiration from theses editorial looks and see how I can enhance my everyday style.
Today I'm going to share an outfit with you than I love to wear because it's a bit more out there in comparison to what I usually wear but it is so neutral and wearable that it doesn't look like I stepped out of a magazine shoot. 

I would usually pair this off-the-shoulder flowy top with skinny jeans as I follow the ratio of baggy top to tight bottoms or tight top to baggy bottoms. By pairing them with a pair of looser fitting mom jeans it makes the outfit quite different. 
To add an edge to the outfit I paired it with some pointed black lace up shoes, which again I would usually pair with skinny jeans. I topped everything off with some minimalistic jewellery to bring everything together. This watch was my Granny's and it's a gorgeous delicate two toned watch from Rotary which adds so much to an outfit.  
Although this outfit isn't extremely out there I think its a bit edgier to the usual skinny jeans and top combination I go for. I paired the outfit with structured face makeup and cranberry eyes to create another interesting feature to the outfit. I wore a nude lip to make everything wearable and make it an everyday edge. 
Top - Stradivarius 
Jeans - Forever 21
Shoes - Penneys
Watch - Vintage Rotary
