January 2012 Lookbook: Uptown Meets Downtown

January 2012 Lookbook: Uptown Meets Downtown
This look is part of Omiru’s January 2012 Lookbook series, which builds upon our 16-Piece January 2012 Capsule Wardrobe.  See more information about this look.

Sometimes it feels a bit confining to define your personal style.  You can be classic one day - but then bohemian the next. Urban tomboy yesterday, but edgy aesthete tomorrow.  I love mixing and matching (clearly!) - but I also love mixing it up when it comes to style sensibilities.  Here, I’ve mixed pieces that read both uptown and downtown to create a look that’d be equally at home on the Upper East Side or the Lower East Side.

1. Start with a open necked drapey blouse paired with a pleated skirt for a foundation that reads cool girl gone preppy.
2. Upon this foundation, layer on a colorblocked winter coat to add to the uptown look.
3. Mix up your accessories.  Here, the grey and coral pumps and the top handle handbag read Upper East Side - but the oversized glasses and striped colorblocked scarf read more Lower East Side.

How do you mix uptown and downtown style?
