STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Pointed, Pumped and Proper

We often like to separate the downtown edgy style from classic prep school chic, but during this transition season, you should try to mix the two! I found this Fashionista bright and early right outside the school coffee shop enjoying trying to wake up for class. Despite the early hour, this Fashionista put together an eclectic mixture of items that makes other students on campus stop and stare. I think this Fashionista was inspired by Gossip Girl and the '90s grungy Kurt Cobain because she was able to make ripped stockings work with a timeless red plaid skirt. These two completely opposite features complement one another and make for the best street style outfit. Don’t be afraid to invest in timeless pieces! You can never go wrong with a nice plaid skirt. Check out Annie Cream Cheese in Georgetown if you are interested in a vintage feel, or be a bit daring and buy this American Apparel maxi plaid skirt you can pair with combat boots, so you will be set for this spring season and even next fall. But the key features of this Fashionsta’s outfit are her pointy toe pumps. Instead of pairing this outfit with combat boots or over the knee boots, this Fashionista decided to take a trendier route and wore the newly popular '90s pointy pump. This trend is brand new and just fresh off the runway!

Celebrity Fashionistas like Mary-Kate Olsen and Elle MacPherson have been spotted wearing pointy toe pumps with floor length maxi skirts and slim fitted Capri pants. These pumps are versatile and oh so trendy! They can pull a grungy outfit together to make it class appropriate or make the most mundane outfit classic and chic. Pointy toe pumps are already sold out at many stores so buy a pair now! I predict these shoes will be your go-to shoe for spring and chances are they too will be a timeless piece.

Check out these Nine West red pumps at Nordstrom or these nude suede pumps By Kate Spade. If you don’t feel like dropping cash on another trend, just check out your mother’s closet. I am sure she had a pair in the '90s. You cannot go wrong with this shoe. Pair them with just about any outfit and you are guaranteed success.
