STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Comfort Zone Blues

Although as fashion devotees we all love to keep up with the latest trends dictating the industry, sometimes concentrating our style energies on understanding our body shape and achieving a great fit is a bit more important when it comes to dressing up. As a young Fashionista, it took me a while to understand that just because something is trending doesn’t mean it’s an ideal fit for me. Not every trend is perfect for every body. It is for this same reason that many times in your fashionable life, you’ll find better results in going for what makes you feel the most comfortable instead of trying to pull off the latest style craze. When giving any type of fashion advice, I can never stress enough how important it is to feel great in what you’re wearing. Even if you’re the trendiest person at the party, if you feel uncomfortable in your overall outfit then what’s the point? Although you’ve probably heard this a million times, sayings do exist for a reason: confidence truly is the best accessory one can possess.

Fashionistas, we all have to admit that each of us has a go-to look or trend that we constantly turn to in times of need. So on the next occasion when you’re short on options or stuck with not knowing what to wear, try putting a new spin on your “comfort zone outfit”. The prevailing mix of denim and white serves exactly that purpose in the life of the fashionista above. If you really want to know how to flawlessly use this versatile fusion in your day to day life, check out the way she put together this look with a modern edge. I don’t think any of us can deny that her casual-cool street style game is pretty on point.

Today, this Fashionista is sporting a pair of high-waisted, cropped jeans and a white button-down shirt. She then built upon this classic look, with a cross-body bag worn on the side, inspired by the light blue hues in her pants. Her main accessory, a modern pair of sunnies, is a must-have on a day under the Caribbean sun and works perfectly well with her knot-locked belt. The finishing touch on her attire is a pair of Stan Smith Adidas sneakers. This vintage adidas shape has lately been a popular article amongst every style-lover’s closet. This Fashionista’s style is a perfect example of simplicity at its best. She pulls of crisp clean lines and gives us a lesson on how to successfully acquire a bit of style inspiration from the boys side of the closet. I admire how she manages to look so modern while wearing traditional pieces and still avoiding too much embellishment.
