Style Advice of the Week

In a time where fashion is becoming sleeker, bolder and minimalistic, there is no better way to stand out on the streets than with an eye-catching graphic black and white print. Modern and edgy, yet refined and innovative, black and white graphic prints are an exciting approach to renovate your look. By using simple silhouettes and accessories, this fashion trend is one that does not have to break your budget. You will find yourself wearing these essential pieces time and time again, season after season to come. Modern influences have entered fashion with power and sovereignty and are not leaving our lifestyles anytime soon.

Strong geometric shapes are a wonderful way to make a good first impression, and that is exactly what this Fashionista did with her contrasted chevron stripe scarf. By keeping a dark ensemble of layers, she allowed her infinity scarf to steal the scene becoming a true statement piece. Electric blue booties were the perfect way to liven up her modern ensemble and leave streetwalkers gazing at her getup.

When searching for your own graphic statement piece, don’t be afraid to be bold. Fashion is all about standing out, and you should never be afraid to wear something you’ve never seen before. A silk geometric scarf is a great accessory to throw on with a coat to add a modern edge in a flash. A Cubist inspired dress is a classic statement piece that will quickly make you the center of attention anywhere. A pair of houndstooth pants is another sophisticated approach to this modern aesthetic. Black and white can do no wrong together, and it will make you stand out paramountly.

We all love wearing comfortable and slouchy pants when we’re unwinding at home. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels the most relaxed when wearing baggy and loose sweat pants. Much as I adore them, I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing these unflattering pants outside of my home. The popular trend of printed pants lets us wear these roomy and comfortable articles of clothing stylishly. This Fashionista shows that loose-fitting pants with a cool and interesting graphic print are easy to wear and also super comfy.

She starts off with a pair of black and white printed pants with a slouchy cut, though they also have a tapered leg to add some shape. By pairing the pants with a bright sweater, she injects some color without overpowering the print. Then she finishes off the look with neutral, black oxford shoes and a cute side braid.

You could also reverse the pairing worn by this Fashionista by wearing colorful and bold printed pants with a neutral top. For example, this vibrant pair would look perfect with a simple white tee and a white envelope clutch. If colored leopard is a bit much for you, just choose a subtle print. You will still look chic without being too dramatic and over the top. While this print could easily be overwhelming, the color scheme of navy and black neutralizes the otherwise wild pattern. You always have the choice of wearing the pants with a silky black blouse or a bright solid sweater in whatever color you desire.

Slouchy, printed pants can be found in black and white, bright colors and prints or subtle patterns. Pick a pair, wear them out and feel super comfy and chic at the same time.

Upon hearing the words ‘graphic tee,’ one usually cringes at the thought of shrunken shirts with tacky slogans scribbled across the chest. However, this season’s spin-off of the once dying trend has revived the graphic tee into an art to be worn at any occasion.

This week’s Fashionista dons simplicity in style. Her minimalist approach combines earth tones and solid basics to create an ensemble that is not only effortless but also aesthetically pleasing. The graphic tee adds variety to even the simplest of ensembles without requiring the clutter of accessories. This week’s Fashionista pairs her oatmeal-colored tee with simple dark denim and hunter green TOMS shoes. The asymmetric hem and generous cut of her tee against the slim cut of cigarette leg denim creates a flattering combination that is both clean-cut and convenient.

Perfect for pairing with everything from jeans and sneakers to skirts and flats, the graphic tee paints an artistic picture for every assemblage. For an easy-going outfit, pair an oversized tee with skinny-fit denim or high-waisted shorts, or follow in the footsteps of style icon Alexa Chung and make the unlikely match of graphic and glam. Whatever the occasion, the graphic tee is a go-to this season. For graphic content as chic as this Fashionista's, check out Altru Apparel's collection.
