STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Winds of Whimsical

Style Advice of the Week

Looking whimsical is one of my favorite looks prevailed by stylish ladies. Something about this style is so soft and feminine. Inspired by nature and imagination, whimsical fashion never fails from achieving not only amazing style, but also includes fun, fantasy elements into every day reality.

This gorgeous Fashionista said her wardrobe choice was inspired by the sunny weather and white clouds in the sky that morning. Having a beautiful day to get dressed up for, she picked a watercolor-designed T-shirt, teal cardigan, lace skirt and ballet flats. Her color scheme was light and fresh, choosing mostly light greens, purples and neutrals. The dreamy pattern on her T-shirt and girly lace skirt corresponds with the array of sea foam green necklaces and other accessories. Three quaint necklaces with hearts hang right above another necklace with a rock held by twisted metal that looked fabulously earthy. The statement ring she wore gives off a tribal feel and looked classy with a neutral nail polish that proved less is more. Her shoes maintained her silver accessory trend with spikes, adding a dose of edge to her overall dainty outfit.

To achieve this look, you should choose pieces with feminine designs, textures and silhouettes. Check out Free People for skirts and dresses that have beautiful detailing and shape that will be the foundation to your whimsical outfit. Jewelry with earth tones, such as the rock necklace can be found at Urban Outfitters. My advice for picking bohemian and earthy jewelry, though, would be to seek unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. An amazing website, Etsy, sells items that do not sell duplicates—ensuring that you will be unique.

After you dress yourself in your dreamy ensemble, sit back with a cup of tea, enjoy the simple beauty of your normally overlooked day and forget reality for a moment. When that moment’s over, carry that feeling of serenity throughout your long days of work, studying and classes with your stylish wardrobe.
