Style Advice of the Week

Nothing feels better than getting complimented on your outfit. Whether it is from a stranger or one of your peers, it is assuring and exciting to know that someone looks to you as a stylish Fashionista. There is no better way to fish these compliments, then by adding that extra edge to your attire.

Whether you are dressing preppy, punk or just casual adding some edge to your outfit will make everyone turn their heads. Just the other day I was walking around campus when I spotted this Fashionista dazzled in her preppy yet edgy outfit. Not being an extrovert myself, this outfit caught my attention for I was so intruiged to learn about her fun style.

She is wearing a pair of black denim jeans from Citizens of Humanity. Not only are they a pair of fashionable well-known jeans that go perfect with her outfit, but they are an essential to have in your wardobe. Black jeans go with just about everything, so along with your typical denim washes, black will help add that extra edge to your style.

Along with the denim jeans, this Fashionista is wearing a light-wash denim shirt underneath her sweater that she purchased at American Eagle. Although you can not see much of it, it adds that extra edge to the outfit, which makes it so preppy. Just like denim jeans, a denim shirt is also a benefitial piece of clothing to have in your closet. It can be worn all times of year and you are able to combine it with any type of ensemble to create any look you desire.

What I liked most about this Fashionista's outfit was her sweater. This green cashmere sweater was purchased at Macy's, and can be found at any men's clothing store. What I liked most about the sweater was that it was her brothers! Sometimes it is fun and edgy to dress in clothes that may not be directed for you. The baggy look makes the outfit more casual for her day full of classes, which was just the look she was going for. Her addition of gold statement jewlery adds the final touch on this perfect outfit.

Sometimes, it is fun to think outside the box and come up with fun and creative ways to add some edge to your style!
