It’s finally here!
The wait is over we are officially bringing you double the fashion! Meet Care & Kyra or Kyra & Care, however you prefer it, we’ll just call it “KC Style” for now. We are two fashion and style influencers who have come together to bring you some new looks each month, in our own special way. We are both natives of Detroit, MI and now reside on the Western side of the state. This collaboration grew from a network of individuals recommending that the two of us meet. After hearing one another’s names in many circles we decided to connect, and a friendship and passion was born.
Nothing is more organic than a Detroit girl link up! We have been holding one another accountable in the blogging and fashion world as well as personal and life goals. Through our friendship we came up with the idea to connect our passion for fashion and our different body types to show all of you how to make your style your own. KC Style is a monthly collaboration where we will go in depth about a look, style, or trend that we interpret in our own style. As we enjoy body positivity and believe beauty and fashion crosses all shapes and sizes, we will use KC Style to do just that! You as our followers, fans, and friends are the voice of this collaboration and we want to hear from you!
We’ve decided to open this collaboration with a fashion favorite and common go to for most anyone, DENIM! Denim can be dressed up or down, considered casual and street style and can be worn in most any season ( check out Care’s Free “How to wear denim in Summer” eBook for the warmer months.) Remember denim is a fabric and does not entertain simply one style of clothing (most commonly referred to in the jeans family.) We are both wearing the fabric demin, but wearing a variation of pieces. Denim can come in many shades and colors and the fabric weight of denim can also change based on the quality and manufacturer. Now that the education piece is over, let’s get into the fun of these looks.
We both decided to show off an all denim look to match our style. Kyra opted for a denim dress on top of distressed denim with an added layer of the denim jacket as a throw over piece. Although Kyra has on 3 different denim items, they are all your basic denim pieces. Care also opted for a denim dress, but a longer stand alone look. Care’s dress can be tied in the front or the back in which she paired it with a long necklace to add detail and compliment her shoes.
We were both able to execute an All denim look that was perfect for our body types. Kyra having slim long legs, pairing heels and distressed denim to separate the dress and pants line helped to keep her length without shortening her frame. Care is bottom heavy and has a smaller waist, therefore opting for a looser fit on the lower area and tying the dress near the waist helped her keep her shape and not lose the length of the dress.
Care described her look as a minimalist all over look. Having one solid piece with minimal detail and a “bloated days grace.” This dress is perfect for a day when you want to feel pretty and look like you gave some effort without the hassle of being uncomfortable in your most “snatched” under garments and shape wear. It can be worn with heels as pictured or sandals and even tennis shoes and a simpler dangle necklace for maximum comfort. Care recommends this look for any body type but particularly individuals who like to emphasis their waist and eliminate their hips and thighs a bit.
Kyra described her look as simplistic while making a statement at the same time. The Canadian Tuxedo (Denim Jacket paired with Jeans) is by far one of Kyra’s most favorite looks to pull off. Most people feel that when you wear denim, they all have to match although this isn’t true. Most wouldn’t even think to pair three different shades of denim. If Kyra were to wear the denim dress alone, she would pair it with a flat or a thigh high boot (so that the majority of her legs are covered) due to the length being a little too short for her liking. Kyra’s look can be worn on date night, a night out with the ladies, or in a “fun” casual setting. Don’t be afraid to add a statement piece of jewelry to this look to jazz it up a little!
We hope you enjoyed our first collaboration and we hope you come back for more. As we are still trying to decide on a name help us out by dropping your thoughts in the comments. As we want to bring you all something each month please share with us some things you want to see, any advice you need and your thoughts on the KC Style Collaboration all together. Tune back in this time next month for more of the KC Style Collab and you may see what you were looking for.
Care & Kyra!
