Movie Character Monday – Skye/Daisy
SO… technically this is a Tv character but today the LA times, reviled the new look fo Daisy Johnson aka Quake, formally Skye. This costume, puts her more on par with her comic book character and has her in the S.H.E.I.L.D jumpsuit that fellow badass characters Bobbi aka Mockingbird and Agent May rock. While I am loving the new look (and the hair #shorthairdontcare), I have always loved the easy street style of the hacker turned secret superhero wears. Therefore, for this movie character Monday let us take some inspiration from her days as Skye.
Signature to the character are her preferences for cooler colors, leather detailing, boots and tomboy leaning. Throughout the first two seasons, she is often seen wearing some sort of dark wash jean, leather jacket or vest, and black leather booties.

The first season establishes black and grays as her signature colors, occasionally other colors (such as the purple in the image above) pop up. This was generally seen throughout the use of plaid and stuck to the same dark jewel tone hues.

While the She generally rocked pants, to keep her tomboy edge, Skye/Daisy showed that the look wasn’t limited to pants nor the color rules listed above, occasionally breaking out and wearing an awesome dress with her signature pieces.
For the example piece, we are playing off the shirt dress and her love of plaid since it’s highly in season.
