STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Black And Blue And Red All Over

Style Advice of the Week

All north Texans are currently rejoicing; we’ve hit “the month.” It’s almost April, and that means that for the next few weeks, the weather is going to be somewhat stable. No dramatic temperature changes? No shorts one day and then parkas the next? No torrential downpours or dust storms or freak balls of sleet falling from the sky? Count me in!

There’s no better way to celebrate the arrival of a warm spring season than a cheery sun dress. This Fashionista starts off by throwing on the perfect one—denim and florals will always be the epitome of southern springtime. On top she layers a wine colored cardigan to keep her warm when it gets breezy. Cardigans are the perfect transitional piece from winter to spring. They can provide some extra heat in case it’s a bit chilly, but are usually lightweight enough to keep you from getting too toasty. Make sure not to have too much pattern going on on your cardigan if the clothes you’re wearing underneath have a definite pattern like this Fashionista’s. She pulls off the color, pattern and basic balance just right.

Forget the little black dress; the little black purse is a piece that should be in every Fashionista’s closet! Black goes with nearly everything since it is a neutral, so a simple piece in a simple color like this can take you a long way in the fashion world. When looking for your LBP, simple and understated is always chic. If a fancy new name brand purse isn’t in the ramen-noodles-every-night, struggling college student budget, thrift stores and good ol’ Target can be some of your best friends.

She finishes her look off with a pair of vintage, black suede ankle boots. Once again, black is one of the best neutrals for pairing with any outfit. You can copy this Fashionista’s kicks with a pair of super luxurious suede or velvet ankle boots that give her outfit just the tiniest punk-y edge.

Throw on some statement earrings, a statement necklace and a pair of sunglasses for a complete and accessorized spring look. Your outfit will surely pack a punch!
