STYLE GURU STYLE: When Posh Met Sporty

Being comfortable is always a priority to me when getting ready. Minimal pieces always create a clean look that is stylish, modern and ultimately super comfy for any occasion. Who wouldn’t want to hit up class looking sleek and feeling relaxed?

It’s always a good idea to turn to Calvin Klein for the ultimate comfort style guide. This season, the cotton conglomerate has debuted their 2016 resort collection that combines all our inner jocks with ‘20s-inspired dress silhouettes. The monochromatic collection combines trendy normcore pieces, like platform sandals and shift midi dresses, with rich leathers and silk fabrics.

While I would love to wear elaborate (yet minimal) Calvin Klein culottes and layered dresses, compromises have to be made on a student budget. A calf-length, heather gray, tank top dress is my base for this look; the simplicity allows my accessories to stand out and it is beyond easy to wear any day—no matter what the weather is like! This jersey dress calls on inspiration from tennis fashion and draws on the sporty trends as seen in the Calvin Klein show.

To turn this dress into streetwear material, monochromatic accessories with matching textures are introduced to the outfit for a feeling of effortless chic. I have chosen to wear my color-block platforms with a matching leather bag, while a white Swatch has gold hands that match my monogrammed necklace. The right accessories can allow any black, white and grey outfit seem like it walked right off a runway in 2015. Go ahead, Fashionistas, put on your comfiest dress and you’re sure to still look fab.

Get My Look: 1. A midi tank top dress. 2. Chunky platforms. 3. Any large leather tote. 4. Monochromatic timepiece.
