STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Top Knot and Mustard Accents

Style Advice of the Week

One of my favorite trends that isn’t going away anytime in the near future is the top knot or messy high bun. I don’t know about you, but once the first rounds of exams roll around, I don’t have the time or energy to get up and shower before those 8 or 9 a.m. classes.

Top knot hair is the perfect solution to days like this (or maybe it’s just a bad hair day). This look continues to work for the hot summer weather that hasn’t gone away, and will be perfect for fall weather as well. The top knot or messy high buns are both a great option for outfits with neck or shoulder accents, such as fall scarves. Check out this link for step-by-step top knot how-to instructions and pictures.

This Fashionista has the right idea. She pulls off a well-accented and flattering outfit with top knot hair. What is the one specific aspect of her outfit that stands out the most to me? The mustard yellow skirt.
Mustard yellow has been an outfit accent for a couple seasons now. Whether it’s a scarf, clutch, pea coat or skirt—mustard yellow accents can make or break your outfit. See more mustard yellow options here. The earthy tone of this color works great for fall, but still stands out as a vibrant summer season color in this hot weather.

Once the weather starts to agree with the season, it’ll be time to carry those cardigans, sweaters and jackets around again. This Fashionista is prepared with a jean jacket. No matter what your personal style is, jean jackets are a practical wardrobe classic that many people have had in their closets for years. There are some great tips on how to pair your jean jacket with an outfit without looking outdated here.

So remember Fashionistas: so or no shower, good or bad hair day, it’s never too late to show a little shoulder by throwing your hair up into the perfect top knot.
