Can you believe it’s already August? Soon we’ll all be trading in our tank tops and shorts for jeans and sweaters. A trend that I’ve seen all around town this summer is black and white. I’ve seen everything from black maxi dresses to white scarves to black and white shoes. And this Fashionista is no different wearing her black maxi skirt and Aztec printed shirt. There have been a lot of Fashionistas wearing this trend. Earlier this summer I wrote about a Fashionista who mixed the two together in my article, Aztec Around the Neck.
What I loved about this Fashionista’s outfit is the shirt that she paired with her skirt. One thing I love about her shirt is that it’s a crop top and creates a clear distinction between the top and bottom half of her look. Another thing I love is that it’s patterned. A solid colored shirt would have worked just as well but the pattern helps add a little fun to the outfit. She could have even gone a little bolder and chosen a colored patterned shirt, which would have been fun and brightened up her look a little.
Since this Fashionista kept her outfit relatively simple, her accessories helped her stand out a lot more. She mixed gold and silver accessories together which was nice because she kept everything consistent but still had a variety that worked. She wore a bunch of silver and gold bangles on her right arm and a cute and functional gold watch on her left arm. The best kinds of accessories are the ones that serve a purpose but are also adorable and her silver sequence flower tied the whole look together. In my opinion, the way to create the perfect look is to wear eye catching pieces that draw attention but don’t overwhelm you and let your outfit shine!
Spotted: Maxi skirts are also a popular trend on the runway. Christian Dior used maxi skirts in his resort 2014 collection and I’m sure we’ll see them again!
