STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Not So Basic Basics

No matter what, basics are a necessity when it comes to fashion because with basics not being comfy is never an issue! It is always nice to be able to dress an outfit up when you’re feeling fun and dress it down when you’re feeling casual. Summer has so much potential when it comes to experimenting with what you have in your closet or what you find on a rack to add to your collection.

This Fashionista is rocking the not so basic look wearing a black skater skirt perfect for numerous different occasions. She pairs it with a dark gray tank crop top and vibrant blue pointy flats with ankle straps. Best of all, around her waist, she sports a floral chiffon button-down around the band of the skater skirt. The floral is very colorful and bright. With a simple addition of this top, the basics of her outfit become not so basic.

At first when her style caught my eye, I thought that she was wearing a super cute floral skirt but when I looked at the front of the skirt I realized it was a long sleeve floral chiffon top and she was rocking it just right! That is exactly how basics should be dressed up. In the simplest way a basic black skater skirt can turn into a vibrant floral skirt.
