STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: You Never Go Out of Style

I have a theory. This theory is that nothing goes out of style. Of course, we are not wearing shoulder pads the size of the Eiffel Tower anymore, but the trend still exists. Remember when Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears walked the red carpet wearing all denim? We are all thankful that phase is over, but it is certainly not extinct. The jean hats are gone but with a cute pair of flair jeans with a light denim top can look incredibly chic (Madewell is the queen of this style). I even own a pair of jean overalls and they just might be my favorite piece of clothing. My point is that style never goes out of style. We are constantly evolving, editing and bettering our styles from inspiration of the past. It may be cliché but you don’t know where you are going unless you know where you have been. Sometimes your low cut mini dress needs some shoulder pads to help it sit right.

This is what I love the most about this week’s Fashionista. You look at her outfit and automatically think modern and chic. However, these Michael Kors long, flowing pants are not new to fashion. The 1960s were the age of the hippies and these flared pants were a necessity to say the least. Our Fashionista’s pattern may be more modern, but the idea originated from the time of peace and love. This Fashionista especially throws it back with her adorable matching wedges. I am a huge fan of the flare pants with wedges; there is no style that screams “legs for days” more than this one. Paired with her floral white embroidered top, our Fashionista managed to make a hippie-inspired look as modern as it gets. She then accessorized with the most timeless pieces, such as her Marc Jacobs watch and Michael Kors tote. I’m diggin’ it.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Summer is a strange season because both the weather and my plans always seem to be constantly changing and very flexible. Whenever I wear wedges or heels I keep a pair of flats or sandals in my bag so I’m prepared for anything. Light, loose fabrics on a hot day are the way to go because they keep you cool but I definitely always try to have a blazer or sweater on hand in case it gets nippy in the evening.”
