STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Matching is So Last Season

As girls, we are forever looking into our closets and claiming we have nothing to wear. Day after day, night after night we stare aimlessly into our closets full of clothes only to come to the conclusion that nothing is good enough to wear. It’s easy to say you have nothing to wear when what you have has always been worn the same way. It’s time to re-think the way you wear certain pieces of clothing in order to create whole new outfits.

Remember when black and brown couldn’t be worn together? And remember when wearing all denim wasn’t cool? Sometimes you have to break the rules in order to start trends. I mean, this is fashion, not rocket science; there’s more than one way to do things. This Fashionista has got the right mindset when it comes to creating new outfits by putting pieces together that you normally wouldn’t see in the same outfit. Let’s face it, matching is so last season. It’s time to start thinking outside of the box.

Purple, orange, peach, blue, who cares? Have fun and experiment. Mix and match; borrow and trade pieces. What I like best about this Fashionista’s outfit is that she wasn’t afraid to try different trends all at the same time—a maxi skirt with head jewelry and statement earrings with goddess braids. Remember when I said to re-think the way you wear certain pieces? Well this Fashionista did just that. She took a regular tank top and transformed it into a halter top. She also took a regular maxi skirt to the next level by cutting slits in it on both sides for a little edge.

So next time instead of thinking you have nothing to wear, revamp what you already have in your closet and don’t be afraid to break the rules and stand out.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “My style advice to anybody who wants to be creative and do your own thing is don’t be afraid to break rules. You don’t have to match; not everything has to match. Playing around with colors is fun. Always make sure you dress to fit your body type, whatever makes you comfortable and just be great at what you do.”
