STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Tomboy Meets Girl

One of the greatest things about fashion is that it allows you to express your mood on a day-to-day basis. You can stick to your personal style preferences without being afraid to dress a little differently every day. I have found that some days require feminine dresses, while other days may call for jeans and a muscle shirt. There are also those busy days that demand stealing your boyfriend’s button-down and tying your hair back to get things done, which is exactly what this Fashionista did. And she looks RAD doing it!

I spotted this Fashionista studying outside the student center and was immediately drawn to her patterned headscarf paired with a brightly striped shirt. When I learned that she had casually stolen her boyfriend’s shirt for the day, it made the look even cooler. Laid back, menswear-inspired clothes have been seen a lot lately, resulting in loose, casual and sexy styles (and let’s face it, we all love finding a great oversized shirt or sweater in the men’s section)! This Fashionista sums up the masculine-meets-feminine trend by pairing her shirt with a cute headscarf, big sunglasses and earrings. Neutral shorts and sneakers finish the look.

This look could easily be interpreted to include different style choices. A loose dress with lace panels is comfortable and feminine. A pair of soft pants paired with a relaxed shirt is cool and easy to wear.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Just be comfortable. Bigger clothes are most comfortable than form-fitting ones, especially in this hot weather, so wear something loose, but don’t be afraid to show a little skin.”
