If fashion has taught us one thing, it is that while no trend lasts forever, some remain timeless, suspended within a perpetual cloak of that ever-elusive “cool” that many try so hard to attain. Lucky for this week’s Fashionista, snagging what might just be the three most stylish colors of fashion appears to be second nature. Like the coveted cherry atop a black and white sundae, she stuns like a screen siren above, yet stays classic and cool beneath.
A delicate feather-patterned skirt floats luxuriously at this Fashionista’s hips while a pair of black knit tights and solid black booties work to toughen up her lower half. Tucked in is a girlish, lace-laden white top — the perfect way to accentuate the dreamy feel of the feather print puff skirt. For a final dash of Hollywood glamour and schoolgirl appeal, this Fashionista bundles up in a candy apple red coat, complete with exaggerated Peter Pan collar and round buttons down the front. Paired with an of-the-moment cognac bag, she keeps her look understated and durable enough for a day of classes.
If you want to give the red, black, and white trio a try but live in mortal fear of looking like a human ace of hearts, why not slip on a houndstooth skirt, like this one from ASOS for that instant sophisticate look.The black and white bottom will provide you with the perfect palette to choose a bright, cherry red top, like this adorable blouse from Express.
