I have been in love with fashion for as long as I can remember. My mom always dressed me in sundresses, rompers and jelly shoes. I wasn’t a tomboy, but I wasn’t a girly girl either. Through grade school and junior high, I was heavily influenced by the grunge of the ‘90’s and later the skater, laid-back look of a Miss Gwen Stefani.

Over time my style continues to evolve and be influenced by celebrities, musicians, and trendy fashionistas just walking down the street. I continue to add to my own style standards, but have some lessons learned along the way to share with you.

Wear something unexpected. I have a brown and yellow scarf that from far away just looks like an non-specific pattern, but up close the pattern is actually made up of small skulls. Skulls are often seen more on a punk edge flair, but with more muted colors and paired with shirts or dresses in feminine colors like baby blue or teal, then it is an accessory that serves as the surprise element of the outfit.

Chic and sleek. If you are wanting a low-key, chic look without a lot of fuss, I have two words for you: dark denim. Dark rinse denim looks very polished without being too done up. For shorter girls like me, a darker wash for my jeans helps to make my legs look longer and slimmer. I just bought a new pair of slightly flared jeans in an indigo wash that make me feel about five pounds skinnier. By pairing with a dark-hued shoes, it creates one long, lean line for my shorter legs.

Dresses + boots. This is an awesome look for anytime, any season, any body type. The trick is in choosing the right style of dress and boot. If it’s winter, have some fun pairing bright tights to break up a muted look. Example: if you have a dark gray dress and gray booties, than a pair of hot pink tights are what would really break up the look in a colorful, but not overdone way. Sometimes it’s just one item that changes a whole style.

The photos are from Pinterest that reflects one part of my style. What's one of your favorite fashion tips?

Quality of fabric bc a cheap fabric can really dampen any outfit. And when in doubt, pick the color black bc it will always look classy and be timeless (unless faded). Also, I prefer something tailored or fits my body rather than cinching. This comment has been removed.
