STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Need For Structure

May 13th, 2015 at 2:00am

For as long as my love of fashion has existed, I always have the struggle of trying to look cute but not looking like I spent what seems like forever trying to pick out my outfit. I always try and go for that effortless look that we all strive for when dressing for the day but sometimes it’s just downright difficult picking out the perfect outfit.

This Fashionista looks like she knows exactly what she’s doing when it comes to picking out the perfect outfit. Everything from her head to her toes looks so well thought out and cohesive. It’s the perfect spring outfit for when you don’t know what the weather is going to throw at you.

I love uniquely structured pieces like this vest because it just gives the outfit a zing that you don’t usually see on an everyday basis. Incorporating things into an outfit like this vest that are well made and good quality always make any ensemble look like you put more thought into it than you actually did. This piece is really unique because it’s not just one piece of leather sewn together at the sides and shoulders, there’s so many parts of it sewn together in different places and there’s shape to it. Investing in something like this means you’ll be able to wear it again and again with so many different things it’s worth the money.

I love how this Fashionista paired her structured vest with a slouchy black T-shirt and kept everything to a minimal to let the vest do the talking. It’s the perfect amount of simplicity. To add a little color back into the outfit I love these tribal inspired sandals paired with the skinny jeans because it gives the whole look a bohemian feeling. Good quality pieces can make an outfit. This outfit definitely is the perfect pairing of cute and effortless.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Make your outfit stand out by pairing one statement piece with some basics. That always makes it easier for me to pick my outfits in the morning.”
