Style Advice of the Week

Do you ever get a little bummed out when watching Pretty Little Liars or Gossip Girl and wish you could dress ultra chic to school? One thing that always seems to get me frustrated is when I see the characters wearing high-heels to class. Even though it is just a television show I can’t help but think, “Doesn’t she get tired wearing those heels around school?” High-heeled footwear is just not practical when walking from class to class every day. Yet, there are ways to wear stylish outfits sans the painful and blistering walk. Oxfords and pretty flats are a great option because not only are they comfortable, but they also dress down an outfit without losing the wow factor!

I absolutely love how this Fashionista paired her adorable royal blue dress with tights and a classic pair of black and white oxford shoes. Steve Madden has a similar pair of these versatile shoes, which were highly popular during the sock hop era. Patent leather flats in neutral colors are also a comfortable way to remain super stylish. I love the Nordstrom “Mindy flat” because it comes in four different colors and it is reasonaly priced. Loafers are also on trend this season and come studded, in animal print and in various colors. This glitter pair from Zara is sure to make you stand out and feel like the modern day Dorthy.

School doesn’t need to be a drab because you can’t wear your gorgeous stilettos every day. Take it from this Fashionista who looks like she would be a featured guest on Gossip Girl.
