STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Subtle Approach To The Bad Girl Vibe

Style Advice of the Week

Finally, I got to enjoy a week off of school for Thanksgiving. I had the opportunity of traveling to Long Island, New York, which was surprisingly warmer than State College! Shopping around on Black Friday gave me the opportunity to scope out the newest trends of the season. I noticed that sequins, metallic colors and basically everything else that’s shiny have made a huge comeback—this further boosts my dream of traveling back in time to the Gatsby days to dress in that style. I always appreciate Fashionistas/os who go out of their way to dress eccentrically yet beautiful. This Fashionista is the perfect example.

I sought out this Fashionista wearing an unusual number at a park this weekend. She is wearing a whimsical yet urbanized black and white striped maxi dress with black studded statement heels. Obviously, this is not your average “stroll in the park” outfit, but that’s what I liked about it.

The dress this Fashionista is sporting accentuates her body and curves in a creative way. The side cutouts give a hint of sexiness and create the illusion of hourglass curves. The vertical stripes are slimming and elongate the body, allowing this Fashionista to appear taller and skinnier. This Fashionista wears her heels with confidence. The stud trend introduced itself last year along the whole “bad girl” look (think Rihanna!). This Fashionista interprets this trend in a feminine way, using the black and white “bad girl” tones with a flowy dress, vintage jewelry and subtly studded heels. This outfit is perfect for a formal or date night.

Since we’re now in December, light skirts or dresses are definitely not acceptable without a pair of thick tights underneath. To recreate a winter version of this Fashionista’s outfit, simply match a pair of vertically striped black and white pants with a black top. I would also suggest a bulky black sweater or a leather jacket!
