STYLE GURU STYLE: Clashing with Confidence

STYLE GURU STYLE: Clashing with Confidence

As you may have seen from my Style Guru Bio, I’m the first girl to put on a plain tank top, denim shorts and sneakers. Thanks to CollegeFashionista, I’ve started to branch out into the world of color and patterns.

Speaking of color and patterns, Miu Miu is prime. The Miu Miu resort 2017 Collection features many bold patterns mixed with different patterns. While browsing through the runway photos, it became apparent I will never be as cool as Miuccia Prada, as if that was even a question. I took my own take on the collection by mixing a few subtler and classic patterns.

Summer in Iowa is hot and humid, so you will hardly ever see me in anything but a tank top or crop top. This one comes in a simple pattern in maroon and navy. All by itself it looks like a classic top, but when paired with my cheetah print bralette it makes the top half stand out and look more put together.

The denim skirt has also been a part of my staple summer apparel because again, the heat is a killer. I love the buttons down the middle along with the buttons on the pockets, because it adds a little more dimension in a subtle way. Also, the high-waist goes perfectly with the breezy crop top.

As always, my feet do not see the light of day. My legs are as long as the Eiffel Tower, so I like to add the long socks underneath my black Converse.

Get My Look: 1. A patterned bralette. 2. A contrasting pattern crop top. 3. High-waisted skirt.
