Style Advice of the Week

Fashion has always played a large role in my life. Growing up, I always had one piece of clothing that I never wanted to take off. When I was three years old, it was my red ruby slipper shoes. Soon after that, I had a light pink leather jacket that I wore everyday. When I was in the third grade, I had a black and white printed halter top that gave me a confidence I never wanted to relinquish.

Recently, as I was shopping for a new summer wardrobe, I realized I hadn’t worn a halter top since that third grade staple item. This summer, as the temperatures rise, so are necklines. Halter tops are essential additions to every Fashionista’s closet this year. High necklines are flattering to every girl. They retract focus from the rest of the body and highlight the beauty of your face. Clearly, my third grade self isn’t the only one to realize this—this Fashionista has also made use of the flattering magic that is created by a high neckline.

With this pale pink halter top, this Fashionista’s face is sure to be the center of attention. By choosing to pair this trendy blouse with a pair of dark denim cuffed jeans, she is ready for almost any occasion. She dresses up the look with a pair of light brown, strappy Steve Madden wedges, which are the perfect pair for a beautiful summer day. By adding a trendy turquoise bubble necklace to her ensemble, she brightens her look and shows the world that she is ready for summer!

In summer, you often don’t know where the day may take you. With her oversized black handbag she can come prepared for wherever her day may go. As she sports a collection of oversized accessories, she continues this theme with a pair of large gold knot earrings. This Fashionista proves that there is no such thing as “too big” in the world of fashion.

As we all know, fashion is a cyclical movement. Everything that was once in style is bound to come back in the future. This summer, it is the halter top’s turn to come back into the spotlight. As you’re searching for a way to enhance your summer wardrobe, try to steer clear of the low-cut tops and dare to try out a high neckline instead. Who knows, it may become the item you never want to take off this summer!
