Midwest Fashion Week | Classic & Chic

Regardless of what city you are in, fashionable events call for chic style. Whether you opt for something unexpected or classic and chic, you take your fashion game up a notch or two to attend these events. We aren't one to shy away from any opportunity to amp up our style, that's for sure! For the shows on Friday night, we opted for blush looks that epitomized spring, but for the finale event at Midwest Fashion Week we chose to wear classic black ensembles with chic touches, like an origami-like neckline and strategically placed cutouts. Can you tell we went with a theme for each day? Check out our style for the finale runway show:

Kacie's Classic Look

What to know something funny? As soon as we went back down to our seats after taking these photos (which was before the show even started), my right earring back popped off, went down the front of my jumpsuit and sat in my bra all night. Awesome. Anywho, when I came across this origami sleeve jumpsuit on ASOS, I knew I absolutely had to have it! I love the structured top and classic fit and when they didn't have it on the U.S. site, I ordered it all the way from the UK and was happy as a clam when it arrived two days later. As an added bonus, both this jumpsuit and my dress from Friday night can be re-worn at my company's upcoming conference - score!

Jaime's Chic Style

Listen, it's not an easy fete to try and plan out coordinating outfits with your stylish friend. I'm not even joking when I say I bought and returned four of the same dress in different sizes trying to make the dress I wanted to wear work. Unfortunately the see-through factor was in full force with the white and black number I had chosen so thankfully RenttheRunway.com came to the rescue at the last minute. I love the cutout detailing on this dress and the classic, elegant shape. It was totally touch and go there for a second for me in the dress department though. I swore to Kacie if I didn't find a dress that I was just going to wear my bathrobe. Let's be honest here, after the cold snap we had this past weekend, I totally would have been warmer. Ha!
