My December Street Style

December Street Style

My December Street Style Is All About Cut-Outs.

‘You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life,’ so said Coco Chanel. A line of poetry every women who marvels at her life, and the possibilities inherent to her gushes at. I’m always seeking authenticity in everything I do, and my December street style was no different. I love dressing for my mood, and usually opt for simplicity, interwoven with touch a of my personality.  So although the season offers many fabulous cuts, colors, and fabrics for a girl to choose from, my more reflective spirit, and busy schedule swayed me towards softer fabrics, with earth tone accents. As habit would have it, I found myself sucked in by neutrals, denim, and of course, a whole lot of leopard.

December Street Style Welcomes Leopard.

I certainly marveled at all the rich holiday hues, and felt inspired by other’s festive spirit. So much so that if I never see another ugly holiday sweater it’ll be one too much. I know, ‘bah humbug’, it’s just not for me. With the cut-out trend being far from new,  it’s one of my must-haves for the month. I invested in both an ivory and black, chunky cut-out sweater and I can’t get enough of either of them.  Karen Millen,  one of my all time favorite boutiques, offered a modern twist to their traditional chunky sweater, and made a gorgeous ivory one that is a multi-season keeper.  It’s E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G: it’s fitted, it’s warm, it’s chic, and ultra comfy.  Below twenty degree days have left me once again finding myself in jeans three to four times a week. Luckily the chunky cut-outs look amazing with denim, and  just about any pair goes. I found a pair of high-waisted, flat fronts with flattering frontal pockets hiding in my closet + they compliment the ivory sweater perfectly. With the sweater falling right below the waist,  the high-waist denim does a great job accentuating my natural waist.

As a girl true to her style obsessions, I opted to rock my staple leopard print pumps, a ‘fav’ leopard clutch; and yes, a pair of leopard accent sunnies! Yes, it’s been raining leopard, and I’m loving every moment of it. I opted for a true red, matte lip, and threw on my favorite gold and ivory chandelier earrings and called it a day.

What style couldn’t you get enough of this month?
