STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: DIY Before It Takes Off

Florida is pushing its luck these days. The temperature just keeps rising with each passing day of summer. It makes me not want to leave my apartment. I’m so thankful for the air conditioner, and without it, I don’t think I would last. But regardless, I am forced to leave my fortress every now and then, and dressing to prepare for the scorching heat is a top priority.

Headwraps are such a simple yet cute accessory that is making a return to the fashion world. Whether it be a flower crown, a simple lace band or a bandana styled wrap, they have returned, and it seems they are here to stay. Many people are sporting them because they cute and also get the hair off your neck. This week’s Fashionista is wearing a one-of-a-kind patterned headwrap with a matching pocket T-shirt. Her mother actually made these pieces for her. While I was taking her photos, I got to speaking with her and found out that is a trend in Dubai, where she grew up. Is that not the coolest thing? She also paired her duo headwrap/pocket T-shirt with simple denim shorts and black combat boots. This Fashionista is starting a new trend here, and that’s what fashion is all about. Even if your style isn’t common, rock it anyway because you like it. Who knows, maybe you’ll start a new trend like Taylor Swift did with her wire cat ears headband (notice the similarity).

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I personally like to wear unique styles because I don’t see a lot of people wearing it, especially a matching headband and shirt. It sets me apart, and I like that.”
