Style Advice of the Week

One of my favorite things about summer fashion is how easy and laid back it is. You don’t need multiple layers of clothing to look put together. In fact, this Fashionista proves you only need one: a little black dress.

This week’s Fashionista wears a black skater dress with mesh detailing on the straps. Skater dresses are extremely flattering because they hug your waist, which enhances the smallest part of your torso. They also flare out, creating an hourglass effect on your figure. This Fashionista styles her little black dress with a gold triangle chain necklace, floral sunglasses and some black sandals. The accessories are simple yet they completely bring the outfit together.

To achieve this Fashionista’s look, try rocking a black dress of your own. Dresses are perfect for the summer because they are incredibly easy. Wearing a dress is extremely comfortable and makes you look like you are putting in more effort than you actually are. A dress is also just one piece, so you don’t need to try to match it with something else. This makes getting ready in the morning a very easy process. A black dress is a great staple piece to have in your wardrobe. Not only are dresses cute and easy, but black is a very versatile color which looks great on everybody’s skin tone.

Not sure how to style your little black dress? Try a loosely knit cardigan on cool summer mornings or a statement necklace on a night out. No matter what the occasion, a little black dress is a stylish way to be lazy this summer. I think that means it’s time to toss out the sweat shorts.
