STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hello, High

A few years ago, “high” articles of clothing made a comeback to the fashion scene. Now it looks like the trend is here to stay, and it’s not just apparent in jeans anymore. Sneakers, jackets, and shirts have their own affiliation with the word that had definitely made an advancement from the Gap brand, roll over, turtlenecks some moms forced us to wear in elementary.

This Fashionista has managed to take her outfit to a new level. She sports a pair of high-waisted, distressed denim jean shorts that help bring some detail to the outfit. While the classic crisp white high-neck top adds an element of simplicity, The Superstars are another clean contrast to the outfit. The white is represented in both the shirt and the shoes; it’s a nice white on white combination that no one should be afraid to explore! However, the black stripes help add more dimension to the look, and are complemented by the oversized dark aviators she is sporting.

It is so easy to get wrapped up with the little things that make an outfit pop. However,  it’s good to remember that sometimes they can shine on their own! The lack of accessories in this outfit is truly for her benefit. This Fashionista’s look screams “effortlessly stylish.” As if a friend last minute called to meet for brunch on a nice summer day.

This Fashionista looks crisp, classic and stylish while also experimenting with a new fashion trend. This summer you may find yourself picking up a healthy amount of high clothing off the rack, especially in the shorts department. Don’t be afraid to try it in other areas, too. Here’s to a stylish summer, and taking your wardrobe to new heights!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I think sometimes it’s just about trying new things. Usually I wouldn’t just wear this outfit around campus, but I’m glad I did! Now I have a cute, go-to, on the go look. And if I ever want to change it up, I just change my shirt!”
