Do you ever wake up in the morning and think to yourself, “I want to dress cool today!”? I am sure you are cool every day, but there are some days you just need to let the world know how cool and fabulous you are, more than you usually do. What is a better way to express feeling like a bad babe, than dressing like one? Considering the fact I always tend to dress according to my mood, I believe others should do the same. You look good, you feel good; it’s simple. Now, let’s get to the good stuff…how to dress like a “cool girl”. It is quite simple actually, all it takes is confidence, accessories, and at-ti-tude.
Mastering the ‘Cool Girl’ Style
1.) Trendy Pieces
Cool girls always know the latest trends, and are always staying a step ahead of the trends. Mix your favorite trend pieces with some of your classic staples. You can even update classic pieces in your wardrobe to be more on trend. For example, I love a basic white tee. Update the look by purchasing a trendy, white, off the shoulder crop top. Off the shoulder tops are super hot right now, and they will continue to be an it girl essential through Spring 2017. I am obsessed with this “Barely There Off Shoulder Top” in white from Tobi.com.
You can pair the trendy off the shoulder crop with just about anything! Pair with high waisted jeans, a denim skirt, a corduroy skirt, a leather skirt, or even some fun athleisure sweatpants for a sporty look.
Accessories are key in any ensemble. However, a cool girl knows the perfect accessories that coordinate with each look. Right now, chokers are all the rage. Whether they be leather, silver, or a dainty gold chain; the 90s favorite is now a staple in a cool girl’s wardrobe. Put on a choker of any sort with an off the shoulder top, and you will have an instant cool girl feel running through your veins. I also love stacking on the rings and bangles, which have become a daily staple for my look.
With my ensemble I opted for a skinny scarf, to give my look a chic Parisian vibe.
3. Add your own flare
The trick to pulling off the cool girl style, is to add your own flare. Whether you love a funky pair of kicks, or you add cool and unique patches to your denim. Make the trend yours, and make it authentic to your personal style. Just because you see a specific piece styled a particular way, it does not mean that is the only way to wear it. Be creative, and experiment with different ways to wear your favorite trend pieces.
For my look, I added one of my favorite silver necklaces with my skinny scarf. I also sported my platform combat boots to add a bit of edge to the Parisian school girl inspired look.
The ultimate key to
dressing like being a cool girl is *French accent* at-ti-tude. Cool girls are cool, not because of what clothes and accessories they are wearing. They are cool because of the way they carry themselves. Cool girls exude confidence, and that is why everything looks so…cool. Remember to always tell yourself how wonderful you are, and be proud of the person you are today! Go on with yo bad self babe!
