Style Advice of the Week

Have you ever looked really awesome but then had a really lame night? No one likes wasting outfits. Never fear, I’ve got the solution! Instead of waiting until next month to debut your cool look again, why not rock that weekend look to class? Nothing says, “that girl has style” than looking put together for school on Monday morning. Take this Czech Fashionista for example; her school of rock inspired look could go to class or a concert!

For all you girls out there with an edge but no idea how to show it, this look is perfect for you. Tartan and plaid have been a huge trend the last few seasons and it is here to stay. Your plaid skirt doesn’t have to be designated for Christmas parties or schoolgirl costumes; it can be a totally fun and versatile addition to your cool weather wardrobe. A good pleated skirt can be super girly or awesomely punk depending on how you wear it. In my opinion, this Fashionista has found the perfect balance between edgy and girly.

The first thing I noticed about her was her killer bag. She’s rocking a black leather purse with gold stud accents. You can find tons of great purses like this at Charlotte Russe. I loved the “blingy” bag against the red plaid, with her black tights and black boots it pulled together her look effortlessly. Bonus points — the gold studs totally matched her quirky jewelry. She was rocking a gold cuff and gold watch with a mustache on the face. Too cute!

Another trendy choice of hers was to wear a cotton graphic tee. Graphic tees and band tees are edgy and comfortable at the same time. Paired with a skirt they rock, quite literally. The design peeking out from under her big scarf and fur-lined leather jacket gave just enough character to this chic outfit. Also who doesn’t love a wool scarf and some hipster glasses? I know I do.

So next time you want to spice up your school week ensemble take a lesson from this Fashionista. Plaid skirts and band tees do go together, grunge ’90s can look super girly, add a few unique accessories and you will be rockin’ it, satisfaction guaranteed.
