America's Most Stylish Blogger Week #5: Tie-dye leggings

For our last challenge item, Bluefly.com sent each blogger charcoal tie-dye stretch leggings by Plan B. I don’t own anything like them in my closet, so the leggings were both a pleasant surprise and a bit of a challenge! With their tapered leg and contemporary fit, they turned out to be comfortable and fun to wear.

To allow the tie-dye leggings to take center stage, I made sure the other elements in my outfit were basic black. I layered a cropped leather jacket over a plain silk tee, then tucked it into a drapey wrap skirt. I picked out a few strong accessories to complete the look, including a pair of studded boots, a studded belt and a silver statement necklace. Against the solid black pieces, the unique pattern of the leggings is an unexpectedly chic twist!

I think the final look is young and experimental, giving off a N.Y. meets L.A. vibe. While the silver studs and tie-dye are fun, trendy details, the outfit is still sleek and polished. This is something I’d change into after work on Friday, an outfit for a spontaneous evening when you don’t have any plans except to have a fun time.

Please don’t forget to visit StyleList.com and Bluefly.com to vote for this outfit on America’s Most Stylish Blogger! I can't believe this is already the last challenge. I owe Bluefly and StyleList a huge thank you for allowing me to a part of this competition, and I'm so grateful to my readers and supporters who continue to vote for me and leave so many sweet messages!
