Inspired by Shao Kahn from Mortal Kombat
I wanted to put a feminine twist on the popular Mortal Kombat character, but still keep his super bad-ass look. I chose feminine shapes, but combined them with tough-looking accessories.
Style Tip: Intimidated by high waisted bottoms? Put a belt on it! The belt breaks up the high waisted look, while keeping it stylish.
1. I paired a safari top with burgundy high waisted shorts as a nod to Shao’s color palette and to show some skin! // Top: CiChic - Apricot Pockets Round Neck Blouse, $31 / Shorts: River Island - High Waisted Shorts, $30 / Belt: H&M - Elastic Belt, $7
