ALL IN THE DETAILS: Rock 'n' Roll Out the Door

No matter how quickly Fashionistas/os have to get dressed, they’ve earned the term ‘Fashionista/o’ by their ability to always look fabulous and put together. This Fashionista was no different; I interrupted her quick movement to class, but she was willing to pose for some photos anyway! Even when rushing, the best advice is to pick a statement piece and base your outfit around it. Statement pieces, like in this Fashionista’s outfit, don’t have to be crazy colors or patterns. A standard, classic silhouette can look great too!

The main piece of this Fashionista’s outfit is her ‘70s-inspired, button-up denim skirt. These popular A-line skirts have been seen on every blogger, down runways and more ever since last spring and summer. The great thing is this classic piece shows no sign of slowing down in trend. It’s a great piece to throw on because it matches everything. Work an effortless Parisian vibe with lace-up flats and a striped T-shirt, a preppy Cher Horowitz-esque look with a pastel sweater and kitten heels. You can take your skirt straight into fall with darker elements and use a band tee to make it more casual.

Though the main point of this Fashionista’s outfit was her cute skirt, her outfit was more edgy than girly. Normally, these skirts usually play up girliness but this Fashionista used the perfect mix of dark elements to contrast it. Her skirt was paired with a distressed band T-shirt, a comfy cardigan for warmth, knee socks and patent oxfords. In addition, her curly hair and plum-colored makeup helped pull the outfit together overall.

If you’ve woken up late or just have not had enough coffee yet, you can still look cute and adorable with use of a denim skirt or other statement piece. Basing your outfit on one piece helps take away a bit of the guess work!
