STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Seeing Stripes

September 7th, 2015 at 2:00am

Sweater season may be quickly approaching, but this Fashionista is still sporting her summer look. I love everything about this look from her ferocious fro to her mini striped skater dress.

This type of dress can be found in many different patterns and solid colors. This simple skater style dress was perfectly matched with all-white Vans. I thought this really brought out the white stripes in the dress. This Fashionista didn’t wear much jewelry, but the simplicity of her outfit is what really caught my attention. I would classify this outfit as casual with a hint of vintage. Skater dresses are trending and are the perfect go-to dress for feeling comfortable and fashionable.

The stripe detail of the dress made the outfit. Patterns such as stripes, floral and polka-dots really stand out and can add a something more exciting to a look. The stripes on the dress gave me a vintage vibe. While looking at 1960s trends, I noticed a lot of dresses had patterns. Stripes and polka-dots were trending then, and are still a great addition to an outfit now.  Another thing about this outfit is the simplicity of the colors. I am a huge fan of darker colors, and I love the navy blue and white. It’s the perfect way to transition from summer to fall. I am so excited to see what our Fashionistas/os have in store this season!
