If anyone is going to be honest with you about your style, it’s your friends; which is why it’s important and valuable to find people who are going to embrace and encourage your style-related risks — even if they involve bubble shirts and inflatable backpacks (fourth grade was inspired solely by Lizzie McGuire and frankly, someone probably should have tried to stifle the creativity on my part).
Now that we’re older though, showing off personal style seems to be more important than ever, and there’s no better time to show it off than when you’re out with your friends. Whether it be a night out or a day shopping trip, this Fashionista is dressed to be out and about. She keeps it laid back and edgy by mixing personal pieces with trendy ones like a tie-dye T-shirt underneath an unbuttoned light wash, chambray top. Her distressed skinny jeans help to add texture and another touch of personal style to the look.
Since there’s enough going on through layers and texture in the outfit itself, she keeps the accessories simple with a few rings, a watch and a bracelet. And since you never know where a day with your best friends will take you, she appropriately wears black, pointed-toe flats.
One Simple Change: This Fashionista is technically ready to go if she were headed out to a concert, but since the weather is finally getting warmer, a cute way to switch up the look would be to swap the distressed jeans for a black or gray pleated leather skirt.
