STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stand Tall and Stand Out

December 18th, 2015 at 2:00am

Dresses have always been a go-to in fashion because they can come in all different styles, colors, patterns and lengths. We all know the popular dress types like maxi dresses, sun dresses, etc. Most dresses are built to fit the season. Maxi dresses are perfect for fall or winter because they cover your legs. Sun dresses are, of course, the summer pick. But what if you want to show off those legs but keep warm, too? This Fashionista knows how to do it with her neon long sleeve mini dress.

What makes this type of dress so appealing is the way it fits the body and shows just the right amount of skin. You can cover your arms with just the wrist showing for a sassy, #bosslady look that leaves room for accessories like bracelets or watches. It also allows you to show off your legs with enough room to experiment with different shoe options. With a dress like this, any shoe is possible. Taylor Swift can be seen wearing this length of dress around the streets of New York City. She wears any type of shoe from Converse to booties to flats to heels. This Fashionista went with a heeled boot to make her legs appear longer and give the dress more room to hang.

The addition of the scarf and colorful cross-body bag make the colors pop out. This Fashionista makes use of a lot of color with the neon blue dress next to the striped red, orange and yellow bag. The wide range of colors makes her stand out in a crowd. The black lace-up boots and black scarf tie the outfit together by creating a balance between the upper and lower portions of the outfit.
