Crop on Crop
STYLIST TIP: When creating new fashion rules for yourself, always make sure that whatever you’re wearing is flattering to your body type. When it comes to “Crop on Crop” keep your pants high-waisted. This way you might see a little skin in the middle but not too much. AVOID low waisted cropped pants with crop tops. This can make one look short.
Shirt Dress Over Pants
STYLIST TIP: When wearing your shirt dress over your jeans DO open up buttons from the top of your pants down.
Shirt Dress: Faithfull the Brand// High-waisted Skinnies: Rollas via The Shop Laguna// Shoes: Steve Madden
Black Pants + White Shoes
STYLIST TIP: When you’re trying a new trend, regardless of the trend, pair the trend item with a piece in your closet you already love. For example if you love your black skinnies try a white shoe-we’re obsessed with white shoes for fall.

STYLIST TIP: There are no rules about color! Wear whatever color you want, anytime of year.

Socks + Sandals
STYLIST TIP: If you’re trying the socks and sandals trend for the first time, go tonal. (FYI… Tonal means the same color of both the socks and shoes.) This look will replicate the silhouette of a bootie and we all like booties!
Dress: Honey Punch//Button-up: MINK PINK//Hat: all via Style Society// Socks: H&M// Shoes: Target
Give your plain white tee a rest….
STYLIST TIP: Invest in a turtleneck. I know it’s hot and the idea of a turtleneck is too much to bear. But I promise when it cools down and you’re still loving your tank jumper or slip dress, you’ll love that you have a warm laying piece to keep you cozy while looking amazing.
