STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: To the Max

One of my favorite quotes by the legendary Coco Chanel is: “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” When it comes to my style, I like to look cute and pulled together while maintaining simplicity. That is also what I look for when I walk around my campus searching for Fashionistas/os. I like outfits that express who a person is without trying too hard. On my quest, I came across a Fashionista who embraced the same simplicity mantra that I have grown to love and appreciate over the years.

An easy way to look effortlessly cute and stylish is by throwing on a dress. One type of dress that is on-trend right now is the maxi dress. They come in all kinds of colors, styles and patterns that fit a range of preferences and personalities. This Fashionista’s maxi dress is dark yellow with a tie at the waist. This detailing at the waist is great because it helps flatter any body shape. Keep in mind, it is easy to get lost in long dresses, so this Fashionista played it smart and paired her dress with a cute jean vest. By doing this, it creates a focal point to the outfit rather than looking like a yellow block.

Accessories wise, she wore brown leather sandals that are perfect for summer, a pair of dangling earrings and circular glasses. That is the great thing about these kinds of dresses—you can have fun and make it your own! No matter where this Fashionista is off to, she is ready to conquer the day!
