What is black and white with glints of gold? This week’s fashionable Fashionista, of course! By contrasting black and white in her chic ensemble, this Fashionista shows that opposites definitely attract. Styled to perfection in a sweet polka-dot tank, simple black trouser shorts and bold accessories, there is no gray area about this Fashionista’s commendable style.
Polka-dots were beginning to seem like a thing of the past, but in recent seasons the trend has made a major comeback. From polka-dot patterned denim, to silk and chiffon tops, a pattern that some considered “stuffy” has now become stylish. To recreate this Fashionista’s look, start by purchasing a loose-fitting black and white, polka-dot tank, such as this “Silky Loose Polka-Dot Crop Tank” by American Apparel. For another fun option by American Apparel, check out this “Polka-Dot Chiffon Oversized Button-Up” available in several different colors and polka-dot patterns. Finally, for the perfect holiday dress, visit ModCloth and invest in this “Dot a Hold on Me Dress.”
Topping off the look with gold statement pieces, this Fashionista accessorized her outfit flawlessly. There is something about gold jewelry that adds a luxurious feel to an outfit and this Fashionista’s accessories are no exception. Her golden chain-link necklace is wrapped in a black mesh fabric and adds a dramatic detail to her look, while coordinating perfectly with her golden wristwatch. For a similar style of necklace, visit Forever 21 to shop their “Geo Link Chain Necklace.” Finally, oversized chain-link watches are becoming increasingly popular as big-name designers, such as Michael Kors, recreate the look for their own lines. Visit the Michael Kors site to view his version of the trend.
