For over a month now, I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing one of my best friends travel about Europe. Although I can only witness the fabulousness of her trip via Instagram and Facebook, there is no doubt she and her travel buddy are dominating the scene. Aside from their overall poise and beauté, we can learn several things from these les femmes fatales. First, it is quite possible to backpack through Europe and look amazing doing it. Equipped with some red lipstick, Madewell denim and Nike kicks, these two truly embody what it means to be chic. Second, it doesn’t have to be designer to look designer. By mixing and matching flea market finds, genuine Italian leather and trendy accessories, they look classy and sophisticated at a fraction of the cost. Third, being sexy isn’t about how much skin you can show. Choose wisely. Leave a little for the imagination. These ladies look absolutely stunning in mock turtlenecks and a simple pair of Chelsea boots.
When you have more time check out their personal IG’s and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. For now, feast your eyes on some photos they shot exclusively for The Style Operandi.
