Tonasha J. [Styled by Jane]

My friend Tonasha recently reached out to me on Twitter to help her style these cut-out wedge heels from Christian Siriano. I am in love/obsessed with those shoes and think they are pure architectural genius but, as an owner of the same shoe, I know it isn't something that lends it self to being styled easily. Because Tonasha's personal style is mainly feminine and flirtatious and this shoe is heavy and aggressive, I wanted to create a look that played up on those masculine undertones while still staying within her personal aesthetic. Something that brought in volume and va-va-voom and still paid homage to the rebellious nature of the shoe. I suggested an a-line black skirt with a menswear-influenced collared shirt. Tonasha has Senegalese twists in that she mainly wears twists down her shoulder so I figured a high bun to bring out her face and a bold lip color to give people something to notice.

As with every successful styling, it's up to the client to take the suggestion and make it their own by encasing it with their own personal style. I absolutely loved how Tonasha took the basic skeletal outline of the look but made it her own by pairing an eyelet navy a-line skirt with a white collared shirt with gold details on the collar tips. MAC Rebel was the perfect bold color to highlight this dreamy summer look. 

 A totally perfect piece of execution! To get the full outfit details (as well as more great beauty and fashion posts from the doctor herself), check out Tonasha's Blog, Perfectly Imperfec-T.
