Style Advice of the Week

I don’t know if it’s just me, but once the temperature drops below 65 degrees you can find me snuggled in my bed under a pile of blankets watching Netflix. So if you’re assuming I spend too much time watching movies and TV shows, you’re correct. My latest obsession, you ask? Cult classics. This week in particular? Heathers. And this week’s featured Fashionista wears an ensemble that, in my opinion, puts a chic modern twist on that lovable, preppy '80s fashion.

She begins her ensemble with an oversized, sheer cream button-down that is loosely tied at her waist. Over her shoulders drapes a heather gray, chunky knit cardigan. She wears a purple plaid mini skirt and thigh-high gray socks. She completes the look with a pair of brown booties and accessorizes with some eclectic rings, earrings and a cool blue choker.

Not only can this little lady dress, but she also has a beauty routine that is to die for. Her hair is colored black (a la Winona Ryder) and she sports the undercut (a la Rihanna). Not many girls are bold enough to give that ‘do a go. Her makeup is flawless. She wears a bold cat eye and pretty, pink lip.

If this Fashionista has inspired you to put an edgy twist on a preppy look, start with an oversized button-down shirt. When you wear a classic piece like that a few sizes too large, it comes off much more grunge than country club. Pair that top with a cute mini skirt or a pair of high-waisted shorts. Finish the look by throwing on a pair of thigh-high socks and a pair of oxfords.
