STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Expect the Unexpected

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Expect the Unexpected

I’m not going to lie, sometimes I look into my closet and I feel like I am staring into a vortex of clothes. I cannot find anything to wear. What once was my favorite dress seems like a distant friend. I ponder why I decided to buy that single shirt… in five different colors. Sorting through shoes is a whole different story. Although, these are all trivial problems, struggling to find an outfit can seem like the end of a lifetime. No matter what I do, my closet just seems to be working against me and not for me. Low and behold, I’ve entered the all too familiar outfit drought.

Thats why, when I saw this Fashionista strutting by, I had to find out about her look. What appears to be a delicate and complicated crop top is actually a simple mens button-down shirt. Yes, you heard right, she folded down the top collar, tied the bottom together and quickly rolled up the men’s shirt sleeves. This is an easy DIY that takes no sewing, involves absolutely no scissors and above all, looks amazing. Paired with breezy patterned pants and quaint accessories, this outfit screams flawless and personalized. This Fashionista threw in statement accessories that go along with a more neutral theme. The wallet, sunglasses and keychain serve more as a frame that displays this killer look. Whether walking to class or having a date night, this Fashionista’s style will surely stand out.

This Fashionista knows how to take boring and make it exciting. For a simple day look, she took something totally mundane and made it her own.
