STYLE ADVICE: Whimsical in White

STYLE ADVICE: Whimsical in White

As the end of the semester draws closer upon us, it means that it’s finally time for sunshine and warm clothes. There has been an unreal amount of rain here in New York City for the past month. So, with each warm day that comes, the masses of students dressed for the sun outside on the Fordham campus gets larger and larger. I spotted this Fashionista on one of the first true spring days this month.

My main advice for anyone trying a different and bold trend this season is to own it. I can speak from experience in saying that black is the new black and considering that that is the color taking up more than half of my closet, I am always looking for new ways to spice things up. Whether it be through pairing black with a lighter color, a bag that pops, or a rockin’ pair of heels, there is always a guiding light helping to make the seasonal transition from winter to spring. Be daring in your choices of how to make your wardrobe for the day pop. Use a bag that has been hanging on your clothing rack awhile, or choose a pair of shoes that you normally wouldn’t wear during the day.

This Fashionista did an exquisite job of dressing for the season in a bold and inspiring way. She pairs unique elements of her wardrobe to make the ideal look for every day in New York. Her base for this outfit is a cropped, crochet top with a gorgeous white, high low skirt. Her base also includes a simple, black crossbody bag, which stands out against her white bottoms. The elements she added to make this look her own are a moon necklace and Chinese Laundry lace-up heels. Take note on the attention to detail in the creation of this ensemble. This Fashionista wears a simple base with colors of black and white which draws attention to her standout colorful heels and simple necklace. The color, as well as cut of her high low skirt, also draws an on-lookers eyes in a downwards direction toward her #RAD heels.

I hoped that this helps you fellow Fashionstas/os when you are trying to find ways to be bold and rock black in a new way during this seasonal transition. I hope that you all enjoy the last few weeks of the spring semester!
