I don’t think I can talk enough about my love for acid wash. It can look good on anyone and can be worn in tons of ways. As mentioned at the beginning of the summer from my STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK post, acid wash is an essential for summer 2013. Another summer trend that has popped up just about everywhere from Balenciaga to Bottega Veneta is the pencil skirt. They have been styled for anyone from business professionals to teenage girls. This Fashionista pairs the best of the best from this summer in a chic look that made me a proud Style Guru. I lusted over this Fashionista’s entire outfit to the point of asking her where she got every piece that she wore.
This Fashionista took her acid-washed crop top and velvet Dr. Martens boots and gave it a more refined finish by adding a black pencil skirt and cardigan to complete her look. And I must say, as far as stylized pairings of trends go, the cropped tank and pencil skirt combination is one of my favorite trending pairs for this summer.
Crop tops, like this one, can often be hard to style; high-waisted skirts are a classic completion to finish off a look that involves a crop top. To get this Fashionista’s acid-washed crop top, snag this Love Me Madly one from Swaychic. For a pencil skirt, invest in a classic black one. They can be worn all year round and styled in many different ways for any kind of weather. This Alexander Wang one is the perfect addition to a Fashionista’s staple pieces.

To get a look like this Fashionista’s, you have to be brave. Showing a little skin can be daunting, but adding a classy piece, like a pencil skirt, to an outfit can make all the difference.
