STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Fall Into Style

September 25th, 2015 at 2:10am

“Summer’s out, school’s in” right? Not so much! Although collegiate duties have already made their way back into our daily schedules, the summer is a long way from being gone here in the Caribbean. Keeping the sunny weather around almost all year means we can enjoy our favorite trends from last season just a little while longer. Most of you style lovers are probably already switching out your sunscreen and bikinis for scarves and booties. As for us, the reign of the “crop top and high-waisted skirt” trend is still going strong and today’s Fashionista is a great example of it.

This lovely gal is sporting a white patterned crop top and a denim circle skirt. She then added multiple silver rings, a pair of white flat sandals and a charming smile into the mix. One good thing to know about high-waisted A-line skirts such as the one you see above, is that it accentuates your waist (which is the smallest part of your figure) and then comes away from the body. For girls with a lot of “what your mama gave you” who don’t want to overly accentuate this asset, this is the perfect option. Also, if you tend to have broader shoulders, a skirt like this is a smart choice since it balances out your shape so the eye sees a nicely proportionate figure. Finally, if your days are not as warm as ours, don’t be afraid to transform those favorite summer looks into warmer versions of the same outfits.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Having a nice fitting denim skirt is a must-have during every season. There’s nothing like a feminine look which makes you look good and feel even better.”
