DETAILS | MATTER

March 9, 2017

I’ve always been a firm believer that details matter. Whether it is that extra effort you put into wrapping a gift with grosgrain ribbon, or a handwritten name card at a table setting, details grab one’s attention and speak volumes.

Details also matter when it comes to outfits. From afar, this look appears to be a simple tee and a pair of jeans. But come a little closer and you will see that the “tee” is actually adorned with silver studs and the material is made of the softest faux suede. The jeans are also anything but ordinary. They have an exposed zipper with a pull ring adding some metallic hardware to the look. The denim also features side panels that are a slightly darker shade of black with an uneven hemline. Fishnet stockings complete the edgy look but peer out only from the ankles to avoid being overly sexy. The structured black and gold handbag and two-toned Chanel pumps balance out the edgy vibe with a little bit of class and elegance.

When it comes to details, they can be as minimal as contrasting colored thread, or they can be as loud as spikes on a Christian Louboutin heel, but no matter how small or big, details matter.

/ My Favorite “Detail” Pieces /

  • Studs or spikes
  • Exposed Zippers
  • Scarf or Bandana
  • Statement belt
  • Reflective sunglasses
  • Distressing
  • Ruffles
  • Flared sleeves
  • Embroidery

Thank you so much! They are one of my favorites because not only are they classic, but they also are not too high in the heel which makes them absolutely comfortable to wear all day!

Christine, I adore this outfit. The ring zipper is awesome. I am a huge sucker for studded anything, so your top is absolutely gorgeous to me. I love that you wore netted stockings with your jeans. The shoes and bag are the perfect finishing touch. You look incredible. I hope you have a great week!

Hi Jennifer! This tee is the softest and I love the oversized fee of it and the longer sleeves. The studs are definitely my favorite since it adds an element of edginess. Thank you for your sweet comment.

I totally agreed with you that details can stand out even in simpler outfit, I am bad at picking up details and always go for colors or prints, but when I lived in Korea, I tried to learn more how Koreans street style fashionstas are always so chic even in oversized clothes, but their secret was details!

Brown Eyed Toast March 13, 2017 at 6:14 pm

You and I are completely on the same page! Details make all the difference, and I like how you pointed out that it doesn’t need to be some loud or flashy item. It can be as subtle as some metallic hardware with a unique zipper or contrasting threads as you mentioned. I personally like to pay attention to details by adding subtle jewelry items. And to be honest, really great brands also take so much of the guesswork out of the equation for you by already having great details. Case in point: those chanel heels looks classic from the front, but the simple pearl detail on the heel changes the game completely. Even a classic black sweater can be detailed by having a subtly different neckline or fabric. Absolutely loved this post and your style!!!

First, what an absolutely amazing look! Your style is always perfect. Also, I whole heartedly and completely agree. I used to be very detail oriented and then I had children and the past three years I feel like I’ve drifted from that a bit but now that my oldest is 3 and my littlest is finally sleeping through the night, I have a bit more freedom to pay closer attention to detail and it makes such a difference in the over all look and feel of an entire outfit! Adore those pants too babe!

This black and white outfit is such perfection! I especially adore those classy and chic Chanel pumps. To be honest, this particular model of shoes has been on my wish list for a while — I need to finally purchase those despite the price! I really love how you styled those shoes with the net socks — that makes your already stunning outfit look even more stylish!

Yes these shoes are definitely an investment and they have newer styles for spring (see my link above). But I’ve also seen dupes from Zara that look just like them if you aren’t ready to take the plunge.

Completely agree that details makes the outfit and I am a sucker for them too! Loved the exposed zipper on those jeans as well as the fringed asymmetrical hem. The top with studs is so eye catching in the sun. Most of all, the pearl detail on your Chanel pump is both classy and timeless. That would be one pair of shoes I pass down to my daughter. So chic as always Christine.
