This blog post is for my mom, whom I love very much, but desperately needs to find the funk in her classic GAP, J. Crew and Banana Republic Style. Her style icon: I would have to go with Jennifer Aniston, which is why I am very excited for this blog post. I have searched high and low to find the best of both worlds for my mom classic style meets edgy trends. This style, or should I say Jennifer Aniston’s style, is definitely something my mom can pull off (almost already does) along with many other women today. I love Jennifer Aniston’s style because it is, as we all know, the epitome of girl next door. In everything she wears, Aniston resembles effortless beauty. Of course her style is not for everyone as it may be a tad bit redundant or should I bluntly say; boring. But for women like my mom, Jennifer Anniston does the perfect combination of casual tomboy meets a girly classic style with one or two trendy statement pieces at the most. The catch is to remember always to add at least one statement piece to draw attention to yourself at all.
Day – cool leather jackets, great statement hats, classic wedges, breezy blouses and sun dresses, flattering tom-boy cargos, a great pair of everyday jeans, a boyfriend denim, wrap cardigans, classic aviators, fine, hand-made jewelry, classic-cool aviators, leather belts and lastly a scarf to finish off most outfits.
Night – To pull of a black dress with a thigh-high split as effortlessly as Aniston does the trick is to choose a focal point on your outfit or body. For example in a mini-dress Aniston’s legs are the focal point by covering her arms. She adds a bit of edge by pairing classic gray-opaque tights for the cooler weather. She sticks to little jewelry and feminine, strapped sandals or platform peep-toe pumps.
No matter what outfit Jennifer Aniston looks great, but even she adds a little kick to her style by wearing a bold-statement piece and/or an edgy piece. So remember that ladies, even though we want to look classic and cool, it is important to add the one piece in on the mix to draw the eyes in!
