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.

(Note these are not the exact same as she wears on the show just preferences all under $150)

For the example piece, we are playing off the shirt dress and her love of plaid since it’s highly in season.
