Style Advice of the Week

I’m not going to lie — I’ve considered succumbing to that faded hair fad that many a Fashionista covets. But the past few times I’ve visited the hair stylist, I’ve managed to resist screaming out for her to dye my ends. Yes, it’s pretty and bestows a do with just the perfect amount of spunk, but when it comes down to it, I’d rather wash out my button up than my locks.

I think this Fashionista would agree, since she styles her frock in a way that seems effortless, yet chic. Hers is from Zara, but whether the color wanes from light to dark or dark to light, the possibilities for this trend seem to be endless. And the great thing about that — No two pieces look the same.

Tommy Bahama’s Boyfriend shirt is light weight and ideal for layering, and 525 America makes a crewneck sweater in the same style. And if you like the look, but crave the unconventional, check out Rita Liefhebber’s earthy tones, ASOS’s denim vest or DIY your own garbs with this tutorial from Andy Torres’s Style Scrapbook.

It’s best to take note from this Fashionista and don your darks below, but adding some simple jewelry and a pair of glasses will play up your style and make for a more eye-catching ensemble.

Of course, your options are by no means above-the-waist limited. I’m loving BCBGeneration’s grey Jasper pants, and regardless of the season, it’s hard to turn down high-waisted shorts this cute. So no matter which threads you choose, when you’re flaunting the fade, you certainly won’t.
