A Classic Couple

classic look
Do you ever see someone wearing something and think, I really love their style? I do all the time - strangers and friends - and I've had some of my friends share their favorite looks with me. Although this couple looks like they should be straight out of a J. Crew catalog, the girl is actually one of my best friends and I was maid of honor in her wedding to the guy she's standing with.

Their look is a classic, All-American style with their own individual styles added in. Her dress is the perfect length and the print is a bit of a geometric pattern that elevates the black and white look. She was smart to keep the shoes a solid black and the jewelry minimal with a statement necklace letting the dress shine on its own.

Fortunately, he decided not to wear anything matchy-matchy to her, yet his outfit still complements hers. Guys seem to have less of options when they're choosing "an outfit" and his look is dressy without being overdone. The colors look natural on him. Sometimes when guys dress up they let the clothes wear them instead of the other way around and this is definitely not the case here.

For a classic look in your everyday life (whether you're in a couple photo or not), keep the lines crisp and clean. Don't let colors battle each other. If the look is minimal, still pay attention to the details that are involved: shoes, accessories, prints, colors, etc. One key thing about my friend's style is that she always has at least one standout element and then leaves the rest fairly simple. In this case, her dress shines and she doesn't clutter the look with overdone makeup or accessories - pretty and perfect!

They look great! I hate the matchy matchy look and these 2 outfits look perfect for a picture together! HIs outfit is trendy without looking "too metro" and her dress is fabulous! Super cute picture! This comment has been removed.
