STYLE GURU STYLE: Longer Lengths

I am finally done with my junior year of college and it is so fun to see how much my style has changed over the years. I never had one set style, but I have been more comfortable with trying new things and being more out there.

One style of clothing that I have been drifting towards a lot these days are longline silhouettes. I used to be intimidated by longer lengths because I am pretty petite (5’3 to be exact), but that’s easily fixed with the right pair of heels! Here I am wearing a striped Vince Camuto longline button-up. If you’ve read any of my other articles, you know I love stripes! The shirt is a semi-sheer gauzy material, so it’s very light and breathable.

I have also been a huge fan of trench coats and duster jackets. The trench coat I am wearing today is from American Apparel. It is in my favorite color, mauve, which is also the color of my nails! I have also noticed that pink tones like blush and mauve are very popular this season. This trench is my most favorite spring clothing item because it makes all my outfits look chic. I can also wear it dressed up or very casually, with sneakers. It is also fun to feel it flow with the wind when I walk.

I don’t typically wear heels unless there’s a special occasion, but these open-toe booties are very casual and the perfect height. The block heel design also helps out in the comfort and style department.

This outfit is something I would wear going out to brunch in the city with my friends or family. I definitely dress more casually on a day to day basis, but it’s always fun to dress up once in a while. The best part of this outfit is that I don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort.
