STYLE GURU STYLE: A Classic Twist

STYLE GURU STYLE: A Classic Twist

Nothing can go wrong with wearing simple staple pieces. The ability to pair clothing pieces and always get different looks is my favorite part of fashion. A mix of classic pieces can take an outfit from day to night or from preppy to edgy. I gained outfit inspiration from Burberry’s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection.

Burberry is known for its classic style and timeless clothing pieces and accessories. As a clothing line, Burberry has evolved beyond the classic plaid patterns and trench coats. In Burberry’s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection, classic pieces, such as trench coats, were worn with vintage night dresses. The collection also featured pieces to support the athleisure trend, such as sporty rubber sandals and backpacks. There is a mix of classic and non-traditional pieces worn together in this collection, but the color palette stays consistent. The collection consists of pieces in mostly neutral colors from black and white to nude with metallic accents. The small details, such as leather and lace, are key to this collection.

In my outfit, I am wearing a black and white striped T-shirt dress from Forever 21. I absolutely adore this dress because of its versatility. It is perfect for many occasions and all seasons. To make the dress more suitable for winter, I paired it with a faux leather jacket and knee-high black boots. I was inspired by the Burberry collection to pair my simple and classic T-shirt dress with statement pieces that are edgy. In the spring, I will be able to wear this dress with Converse or sandals. I wore a red lipstick and top knot hairstyle to add a pop of color and contribute to the classic look.
