Inside Out :: Styling IT Trend & Layering Must-Haves

Hello, my friends! While we’ve speculated what could be hot next season, the beauty of fashion week/month is about what is hot now. Designs we’ve seen from the runway are usually not available until six months later, the ways clothes and accessories come together, however, are the styling trends we can adapt right away. Street styles, without a doubt, is the compass of vogue. The styling trends I am about to list here, you might also read elsewhere, that there are two major styling trends that every fashionista could / should try this season: 1) graphic concert t-shirt with skirt; and 2) wear your slip out.

The first type of styling, is a model off-duty favorite, also rapidly adapted by fashion editors and bloggers. I guess it is because the graphic t gives an effortless and ultra cool vibes while the skirt provides glamour (short, leather, vinyl) or elegance (midi, pleated, metallic). The t-shirt needs to be a bit funky, oversized, dark, somewhat beat up, sleeves rolled, and pair with ankle boots (block heel or no heel) for that ultimate rocker glam. A rock concert t is what I don’t have, so instead I wore my sport chic ruffled top and went with something a little more glam, which I feel right at home in. 🙂5s6a2495

The second tip, inside out, the shirtdress from my last post is a typical example of it. You don’t need a dress like that to sport this trend though. All needs to be done is wearing your slip dress (long or short, preferably satin with lace trim or velvet) over a top (t-shirt, turtle neck, button down). My personal favorite is incorporating the minor trend of mesh tops like what I did here. A printed mesh turtleneck that looks also most like tattoo on the skin, layered with slip dress and kept on the playful side with flatform sneakers and a book box clutch.img_8743x1-2 img_8712x1 unnamed img_8775x1-2img_8762x1

A ruffled dress like this could be overwhelming for everyday, then I would go with a velvet slip over the same top, or a lace top for extra romance. Keep the heels low to continue that sense of carefree and comfort, possible a pair with a bit of edge if lace and velvet is too much softness for your aesthetics.img_8718x1-2

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you will be give these two style trends a try. Please feel free to ask questions and share your experiences with them in the comment section below. See you in my next post!
