STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Learn to Mix-and-Match

There’s something so satisfying about discovering a look that never fails to flatter your figure (and wearing it on those days when absolutely everything seems to be going wrong). When you find that shirt, skirt or perfect pair of pants, make a point to buy it in a few colors or patterns, because you never know when you’ll successfully find it again.

That’s the advice I would give this Fashionista, who nailed this trendy, oversized look with a tight-fitting, cotton dress from American Apparel, (tied just below the bra line), and an airy white t-shirt resulting in the perfect combination of style and comfort for any outside get-together.

The exciting part is, this look can be mixed and matched extremely easily. Investing in two or three different dresses and some oversized basic tees will provide options for dozens of fun combinations that can transition from, say, an outdoor BBQ to a late-night party. It’s all in the accessories! Removing the headband and sunglasses, adding some wedges, and changing into a black tee creates an entirely new look without breaking the bank.

Hint: Shop here for the American Apparel Cotton Spandex Jersey Pencil dress (available in over 15 different colors) and match them with great basic tees from Alexander Wang.
