What Would Derria Wear?: Keep it Simple..and Chic

When it comes to What Derria Would Wear… I keep it simple… and Chic!

If you haven’t already noticed I love clothes and when it comes to styling my looks for outfit posts there are times I want to put my edgy style out there but there are also times that I keep it simple yet chic. Its really important to me to have a well rounded wardrobe. So even on my chill days I’m still stylishly chic.

As you may know I am relocating from North Carolina to Los Angeles this month and it has been very tough trying to pack up all my clothes in boxes and also in suitcases. It clear I wont have access to my clothes all at one time so I’m currently going through everything and choosing pieces that I can wear multiple ways until I get everything in the mail. Talk about stressed. I know it wont be too bad though.

Below is a look that can be worn Three different ways.

Look #1: As an oversized dress by itself with my Comme Des Garcon x Converse sneakers. (or any neutral sneaker)

Look #2: Pictured below with the dress and denim skirt layered to provide an edginess.

Look #3: Skirt tied up or draped over the denim skirt. Each look can give different vibes.

What Would Derria Wear?: Dress Up to Dress Down

When you think of Business Casual or Dress clothes, do you think about pinstripes?

I sure do!  But I Dress Up to Dress  down when it comes to my wardrobe. And mixing up your casual and business clothes can be fun and challenging.

A casual band T-shirt with a pinstripe wrap skirt is how I approached this trend. And of course outfits under $50 or $100 are always the goal.

My cut off band T-Shirt is from HM it only ran me about $18. But I always use a 20% off text coupon so it was most likely a little less. The wrap skirt.. $7! What’s crazy is I saw it in another Forever 21 store for Regular price $15 and when I was at another location I found it on the sale rack for half price! Frugal Shopaholic Luck!

Glasses are Buffalo Exchange of course, probably the only place in-store next to Forever 21 that I buy glasses. Surprisingly my bag is from TJ Maxx. For those of you who continue to sleep on TJ Maxx… keep on so I can round up all the cute stuff for my own wardrobe.

Last but not least my heels. They are Cape Robbin brand and I got them from Nordstrom Rack for under $30. You should definitely frequent Nordstrom Rack online. They have some of the best brands for really low prices, I just wish they had free shipping!
