STYLE ADVICE: Stay True to You

April 7th, 2017 at 2:10am

Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and pastels are in full swing; it is officially spring time! Fashionistas everywhere are shedding their heavy knits and boots and are opting for tanks and midi skirts. Colors like peach, cream, lavender, and blush will breathe new life into your wardrobe. Spring is all about renewal, so by investing in some new trends your look will feel totally refreshing. However, the key to looking the best is remaining true to you and adding your unique touch in each look.

Body suits, ruffles galore, modernized corsets, and funky stripes are among the many trends for spring 2017. This Fashionista incorporated her favorites into her look. Body suits are still thriving this season, which means it is time to reinvent the basic bodysuit uniform. A bodysuit that seamlessly fuses together other trends, like the one this Fashionista is wearing, looks best paired with a more simple and neutral colored pant or skirt. This Fashionista styled her off-the-shoulder and ruffled bodysuit with a pair of palazzo pants. Flowy trousers, like palazzos, are great in warmer weather because the airiness allows one to stay cool and collected. Since the off-the-shoulder top attracts the eyes upward, it is essential to deck out in dainty jewels. Gold jewelry blends best with pastels that have warm undertones, like peach. This Fashionista layered several gold necklaces and added a few vintage rings to tie together her look’s color palette. Another accessory that is not only practical but also chic are small leather handbags. To show off her one-of-a-kind personal style, this Fashionista showcased her love for travel in her map-printed bag and finished off her look with ’70s inspired sunglasses.

While trends are always fun to experiment with, the best piece of advice I can give you as a fellow Fashionista is to always be unique. Trends come and go, but personal style is what sets you apart from the other fashion lovers in the crowd. Now that spring has finally sprung, it is time to revive your inner Fashionista and show the world your extraordinary sense of style.
