style advice summary #1

  I had Monday off of school to celebrate "Family Day" weekend, and whilst scrolling through Tumblr, I was given a suggestion I couldn't refuse - style advice!  I quickly spread the word via Twitter and Tumblr, that I would take style related questions all day, answer them, and try my best to lend a helping hand to anyone interested.  Strangely, all of the questions asked were on Tumblr this time.  Anyways, I've collected all of the questions submitted, as well as the answers that I gave, and am summarizing them here for you.  Though I did begin this on a Monday, I've translated the idea to become "Style Advice Sundays" as it rolls off the tongue a bit nicer, and Sunday tends to hold a bit more spare time for me, so this Sunday, I will be open to questions again!  Leave comments below for next Sunday, or tweet me and ask on Tumblr. xo

What shoes should I wear with boyfriend jeans?

MY ANSWER:  I would recommend:
-chunky black ankle boots
-low top converse
-strappy heels
-chunky sandals/flatforms
-oxfords, loafers
-not combat boots, tall boots, or anything too strictly feminine.  Keep it minimalistic or grunge.

I recently bought some hoop earrings but don't quite know how to style them.  How should I go about doing this?

MY ANSWER:  As someone who no longer has pierced ears (it was a nightmare of a story), I can't give you any ideas from experience, but I will note that I have been seeing large hoops paired with off the shoulder tops, like this one.  They look really nice with turtlenecks also, and big hair, or sleek ponytails.  x

How would you style skater skirts??

MY ANSWER:  Thanks for your question! Skater skirts are super flattering and go with a lot, so there are many options, but for winter, here are a few of my favourites.
-turtleneck sweater, tights, and oversized denim jacket
-leotard tops, tights, cardigans
-collared shirts layered under sweaters
-high neck crop tops
Just whatever you do, keep the bottom line of the top even to or slightly higher than the top line of the skirt, otherwise it takes away from the extremely flattering shape of the skater skirt, and makes it a little less nice.  You can also check out the ‘skater skirt’ tag on my blog, where any post where I have worn one has been filtered to - here.  Hope that helped. x
