STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Celebrate the Classics

Style Advice of the Week

Throughout life, one begins to realize the value of classics. Trends may come and go, but some things are meant to last. Whether it is red lipstick or pearls, classics remain near and dear to my heart. They never go out of style, and there is a reason they do not. There are few pieces in a Fashionista’s wardrobe that are more chic or versatile than the classic that is the little black dress. The LBD never disappoints, and incorporating an LBD into your summer wardrobe will be no exception.

Investing in a skater-style LBD is a smart and fashion-savvy decision. Think of an LBD as a blank canvas, waiting to become a masterpiece with the help of your own personal style. They can be dressed down with sneakers or glam them up with wedges and a statement necklace. LBDs do not always have to be simple though. Lace accents or bell sleeves add a unique spin to the classic. An off-the-shoulder one is so chic as well.

This Fashionista, who I happened to catch on her birthday, was sporting an adorable LBD with white piping details. She was planning on throwing on heels after class and wearing the same dress for her big night out. As if one needed another reason to love LBDs, they are also perfect day to night dresses. Just like this birthday girl, throw on a cardigan and flats or sandals for class. When it comes time to party, put on some heels and you’ll be ready to celebrate in style.
