As I have said before, I am all about making a statement. When a girl sports a statement piece, a subtle element of personal style is magnified. Whether it’s wearing a neon blouse, a chunky statement necklace or outrageous shoes, statements are just flat out fabulous. With pieces like these, you can wear the simplest of outfits without the fear of coming off as bland or boring. Though these are probably the most common means of spicing up your outfit, I have discovered an easy and fun new way to make the same lasting impression – a fun pattern! I spotted this crisp Fashionista on a rainy morning at GW. Her pattern made an instantaneous impression on me. I naturally approached her immediately with intrigue.
This polished Fashionista is sporting a beige, short trench coat, a chain-linked scoop-neck dress and jelly flats. A short trench in my opinion is a more versatile and casual raincoat. It is a garment that doesn’t entirely cover an outfit, like a full trench. Rather, it completes or adds to a look in rainy weather. The chain-linked dress is, by far, the focal point of this Fashionista’s look. The bright coral color within the pattern appeals to the eye and works extremely well with the beige trench. And, because the pattern of the dress is a statement by itself, the Fashionista has wisely opted for simple shoes and accessories. The jelly flats add a fun, yet simple element to the outfit while still remaining understated. This Fashionista got it spot on!
Though this chain pattern is undoubtedly chic, such patterns are sometimes hard to stumble across. However, if you can’t seem to find a pattern like this one, I would suggest simply going with a bright and bold colored dress. When a girl is wearing a color that is ideal for skin tone and hair color, there is a very good chance that they look amazing. Just because something is simple, doesn’t mean that it’s not fabulous. Anyone can make a fashion statement. I know for me, seeing this Fashionista made me want to go venture out for some outrageous patterns for the upcoming fall season.
