I spotted this sophisticated Fashionista on her way to Starbucks. What instantly caught my attention were her sleeves. The boxy sweater with those contemporary sleeves—it was love at first sight for me. The sweater features a mock turtleneck which is infinitely better than your regular turtleneck because it gives off the impression of a longer neck. The gorgeous, warm mustard hue is an unusual color for spring, but this Fashionista makes it work and work so well, at that. The sleeves are nothing like I’ve ever seen before, somewhere between boxy and bell sleeves, very à la mode. While 2016 saw a ’90s revival in fashion, 2017 is going to witness a comeback of major ’70s trends. The S/S 17 collections by Gucci and Valentino are testimonies that dramatic sleeves are here to stay!
This sweater is a statement piece so this Fashionista sticks to the classics for the rest of her outfit. The black, midi pencil skirt hugs the body ever so slightly. It also makes for a killer transitional piece because of its versatility. The great thing about this outfit is that you could totally get away with layering under it because of its silhouette. This Fashionista wears a warm black turtleneck and fleece-lined tights underneath to stay warm on a chilly spring day. She keeps her makeup simple, showing off her flawless skin that all of us Fashionistas crave. She only uses a lip tint and some mascara, opting for a dewy, fresh-faced look.
This Fashionista effortlessly takes on the menswear trend, with her classic Chelsea boots, a wardrobe essential for every fashion lover. If Queen Victoria approved of them, you really can’t go wrong with them! There are many variants of the Chelsea boots out there today and embroidered boots are definitely going to be a big trend this year. Florals for spring might not be groundbreaking, but florals on unexpected pieces like your booties are definitely going to get you some major fashion points.
Channel your inner ’70s babe and make a statement this spring!
