All About Beauty

Today’s Fashionista dons a hairstyle we all loved back in the day; I used to rock two braided pigtails with a funky zigzag part going all the way down the middle of my head. Nowadays, I’ve convinced myself that I can no longer pull off the look, but this Fashionista sports the youthful ‘do with style.

Wearing black knee-high socks, combat boots, a lacey cream dress and denim vest, her hairstyle plus the black fedora makes for a fun look with a cowgirl vibe. The hat definitely pulls the outfit together and complements her braids. If you’re looking for a fedora, check out this super affordable one from Forever 21or this spikey one from Urban Outfitters.

Also, when rocking your twisted pigtails, be sure to use matching elastics. Mini clear elastics are also ideal for creating a polished, sleek look at the end of your braids.

Like this Fashionista, you can rock your braided hairstyle with an outfit that contrasts dainty with rugged. Pick out a sweet little dress and pair it with a chunky pair of boots. If the weather allows, layer on a denim vest, otherwise go with a leather jacket or thick knit cardigan. The good news is that braids take only seconds to do, so you have more time to play dress up with your ensemble, mixing and matching pieces until you find what works. The little girl in you will be happy the braids are back, while the big girl Fashionista in you will be grateful for a quick, easy hairdo.
