STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: More is More

There are many do’s and don’ts when it comes to pursuing great style. The saying less is more may be true for many things in life, but when it comes to fashion I rarely find this to be the case. The more accessories, texture, glitz, the better. This Fashionista does an inspiring job of mixing a variety of styles to create an outfit that is interesting and on trend. She incorporates a number of fun accents into her outfit including a chunky tasseled necklace and studded cross-body leather bag. This California girl stays true to her roots with her laidback west coast style. Her look is comfortable yet totally chic and fashion forward.

It’s hard to pick just one aspect of this outfit to focus on, but my favorite piece is this Fashionista's grey printed cropped tank. The fit is flattering in a way that is subtly sexy and it is simple enough that it creates a great canvas for layering accessories. It complements the relaxed look of the black zip-up hoodie and maxi skirt. This Fashionista makes this style her own and finishes the ensemble with a great pair of t-strap sandals.

For those of you bold enough to try the maxi skirt I love the Heather maxi tube skirt from Splendid. I would recommend purchasing one in a dark shade or neutral color like this Fashionista has done because it’s more versatile and can be used as a good transition piece for fall. It’s also a great alternative to pants. For the popular crop top, I found two great options including a loose fitting off the shoulder style from American Apparel and a lightweight v-neck top from Free People.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: More is Better

Now that summer is in full swing and Colorado's temperature is steadily getting warmer and warmer, the weather change must mean one thing… that the Fourth of July is just around the corner! The weather is finally hot enough for your everyday outfits to consist of nothing but sundresses, lightweight tanks, skirts, and plenty of other cool, comfortable summer clothes.
Previous years of fashion advice advise Fashionistas to maintain a simple look by looking in the mirror and taking one accessory or clothing layer off before you begin your day. The latest fashion trend is to look in the mirror, and put one more item on. That's right Fashionistas: layers, layers and more layers!

Today's Fashionista was spotted wearing a casual white tube top dress with studded leather sandals. She accessorized her basic dress with a wrap bracelet and a watch woven in. This year, wrap bracelets by designer Chan Luu have become extremely popular. If you’re looking for something simple, try Chan Luu's Stone Wrap bracelet from Bloomindales. For a trendier look, try Chan Luu’s Five Wrap Leather bracelet, also from Bloomingdales. Each wrap is long enough to wear as a bracelet, necklace, headband, and even looks really cute braided into your hair in a side braid. This Fashionista’s leather cross body bag was from Anthropologie. For a similar cross body bag, you should check out BCBG's Cross Body Satchel. She topped off her look with a studded headband and aviator sunglasses that made her look like she was ready to take on any Fourth of July party.
