STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Style With A Sense Of Humor

Style Advice of the Week

Like the best people, the best looks are the ones that don’t take themselves too seriously. I think most of us can agree that a sense of humor is the most attractive trait for any person. That’s precisely why I was drawn to today’s Fashionista. Her ensemble has that “just thrown together” vibe that reads equal parts stylish and approachable.

Take note of how this Fashionista’s outfit balances of-the-moment trends with classic pieces. She is rocking the tights with shorts trend on bottom while sporting a basic sweater and traditional, plaid scarf on top. This pairing allows the outfit to extend beyond today’s fashion bubble and work well into the future.

I also appreciate how this Fashionista adds a pop of neon with her computer bag for a pleasing shock of color. This unexpected touch brightens the rest of her look but doesn’t overwhelm. Neon is a tricky trend to pull off but in small doses it can add a much-needed dose of whimsy. She finishes her ensemble with a great pair of black oxford boots. These not only add weight to her outfit but also complement the slim line of her legs.

The slouchy silhouette of this Fashionista’s look reminds me that sometimes we can take our comfy clothes to a new level of chic. We don’t always need to scream pulled together in order to appear stylish. The vibe of today’s example brings to mind the “boho-chic” ensembles of Kate Moss and Mary-Kate Olsen.  Use these muses for inspiration to create your own version of this carefree style philosophy.

First things first, find a great sweater and a bold scarf to hide behind during these chilly days. Add eye-catching accessories like this neon satchel or this bold headband to keep things interesting. Don’t worry too much about how the pieces are matching. Instead, focus on keeping the hues in the same color palate. Today’s Fashionista is wearing mostly muted tones, for example. But above all, remember to have fun with it because, in the end, that’s what really makes this style work.
