There is beauty in simplicity. This is a beautiful motto all of us often forget to embrace. Fashion is a whirlwind of excitement all the time, with new patterns, cuts and trends emerging at every moment. At times, the desire to experiment with too many trends at once does not result in a stylish outfit but rather in a flurry of madness and furthermore tackiness. The key to avoiding this style mistake is by not being afraid to stick to some closet staples while still incorporating something that is trending. One of my favorite closet staples is the V-neck shirt, as it is a style that is flattering on every body type. Recently, this cut of shirt has manifested itself into one of the hottest styles for dresses. If you haven’t had a chance to see this dress style that mimics the V-neck shirt, look no further than this Fashionista for a beautiful example.
This Fashionista proves just how it is not always the complexity of the garment you are wearing, but rather sometimes it is the way the piece is cut that makes it stand out. At first glance, the Fashionista’s dress is nothing more than a typical white summer dress, but upon further examination this initial observation could not be more wrong. The cut of the dress was what instantly caught my eye as it has a soft and delicate V-neck shape in the front, but the back greatly contrasts the innocent nature of the front with a deep and bold V-neck plunge. Its revealing back shows the perfect amount of skin beckoning the attention of others, while still remaining classy. In addition to the clean lines the dress offers, both the front and back of the dress showcase some sweet and feminine detail in green. The cutout details of the piece are subtle yet set the dress apart form any other I have seen this summer season making it a noteworthy piece. Sticking with the theme of effortlessness in her outfit, the Fashionista adorns the rest of her ensemble with wedges and minimal jewelry with a basic Michael Kors watch.
So, for all you Fashionistas exhausted with putting together elaborate attire for your next summer outing, take note of this Fashionista’s use of minimalism to create a universally flattering, classy and chic look. Trends are great ways to be up to date on all your fashion must haves, but just because studs are trending doesn’t mean you have to hot glue gun all your shorts, bags and bikinis with them. Taking any trend to the extreme will only lead to serious fashion disasters. Keep it simple with classic cuts such as this V-neck dress and you’ll have the attention you want in a classy Kate Middleton way, not in an overload of studs and tie-dye kind of way.
