Sexy and Street is a Mood We Stan!
21st century madame chic is brought to you by Sarah and her recent love for corsets. Although typically worn as lingerie or structure under formal wear, she manages to bring her sultry side into casual wear with wearable corsets. She balances off the sultriness of a corset-inspired top with her trusted denim jeans. Pull this off with simple stud earrings and a cute pair of mules. Sarah even dressed up her bridesmaids with custom Boom Sason corsets in her bachelorette party! Talk about goals!
Less Is More
By less is more we meant less of the fuss, more of Sarah’s day dresses that unleash her most authentic self. Although we mostly see her all glammed up fronting magazines in designer clothes, Sarah does take time off but not a break from style. She keeps it up to par when it comes to day dressing to the next level by amping up the midi silhouette with statement earrings and dainty kitten heels to match. On wearing dresses with such great detail, opt for clutches or small handbags, crossbody bags or large totes can disrupt the design and can make the entire outfit look too heavy or crowded. This outfit is also Sarah’s one out of fifty ways to style kitten heels and her Instagram does not fall short on those tricks.
A Jumpsuit is a Piece to Own
When it comes to travelling, Sarah always packs a chic jumpsuit with her. Jumpsuits are edgier and they fit perfectly for countries with cold weather, to style up and style down. You can throw them on and you don’t have to bother on putting on the other half of your outfit, it’s a top and bottom in one! In this photo, she styles her outlined jumpsuit with her Dior sneakers for that ultra California skater girl vibe. Looking at her travel photos in Paris she also packs a jumpsuit that fits the Parisian aesthetic with a chic clutch and a bold pair of boots. Style your jumpsuits as is or layer it up!
A Good Clutch Makes a Look
Keep your friends close and your clutch closer, Sarah swears by this mantra since the release of the New Bottega. Since her recent clutch acquisition from the coolest brand on the block, Sarah has been interchanging her Bottega Veneta pouches on her OOTDs. We’ve learned from Sarah that in order to match a completely powerful outfit you must pair it with an equally striking clutch for maximum effect. Perfect for night outs and dinner dates, the BV pouch is a statement piece worth restyling.
Find that Rockstar Element
Trust that when it comes to style, Sarah can give you range. Sarah effortlessly pulls off this babydoll-gone-rock ensemble with a poured out dress from Martin Bautista and her Louis Vuitton statement boots. She strikes the balance between darling and daring in this photo from the Metro Most Stylish 2020 photoshoot. If you want to try this outfit for yourself, make sure to keep it spontaneous with the personality of the dress to your choice of boots—the wilder the better. Keep in mind that the moment that you stepped inside that outfit you must own it!
