Winter Trend Alert !

That’s right folks! Long skirts with sweaters and booties ! Creating a silhouette fit for every body type with elongating the legs and keeping a high waist action line in the torso. Making the body to appear slender and taller. (who doesn’t want that ?)

I love recreating this look with summer dresses or maxi dresses I didn’t get a chance to wear ! Use the bottom half of the dress as a skirt and put a sweater on top and include a belt to create the same high waist look without having to worry about buying more skirts.

Whats fun about this trend is that you get the chance to experiment with funky colors, styles and shapes in the skirt of your choice. Jeans are great but skirts naturally had more room to creativity of layering and styling.

Try this trend out with:

  1. Turtlenecks
  2. Over sized Sweaters
  3. Fitted Sweaters
  4. Button Downs
  5. Cardigans (Add a belt)
  6. Leather Jackets and a sweater you hate
  7. Pleated Cotton or wool skirts
  8. Maxi Dress
  9. Summer Dress
  10. Long skirts

One can go in the direction of classy, chic, prep, or casual in this trend, so have fun with it and explore your hearts desires!

11 Back to School Styles

I made a video showing some of my very simple and quick styles for class! Especially when you’re a commuter like me and have no time to be fancy-shmancy.

These styles were based on the weather in my area which is in between summer and fall 65-75 degrees. Most of my clothes came from stores like fashionova, forever21, macys, and marshalls.

Please enjoy the video :3

Cotton Breeze – OOTD 8

Top: 5 & Below | Bottoms: Uniqlo | Bag: Dot Reeder

Transition outfits are definitely coming into effect whether we like it or not.. (sigh), BUT style doesn’t stop there !

Styling Tips:

  1. When wearing pants towards the end of summer, try to go for all linen or 100% cotton. You won’t be too hot, however covered up enough to enjoy a semi-cool breeze.
  2. Meditate, because fall and winter is coming so I know you’re going to be stressing a bit.
  3. Wide cotton or linen pants pairs best with a t-shirt, crop top or ripped jean cropped jackets to off balance the wide pants size and show off your waist. The pants forces the “hour glass” shape.
  4. For shoes, a platform sandal, flat sandal, wedge or heel works best. Bulky heavy boots will show an off balance of textures and sneakers that are not high tops is another alternative.

Until next time, Ashadah Austin

My Trip w/ Bae

Youtube Channel: thickglitter

In case you missed it on my Instagram feed, I posted a funny but intriguing video about traveling with my beloved to Virginia. I had a looooot of fun ! It was my first time traveling without my family so it was a bit nerve-wrecking at first, but once I was in the groove of things and remembered how to plan accordingly, it was perfectly fine.

It was bae’s first time traveling without the fam too so we definitely had to make the first time, the best time for us. Luckily we made it there and back safely without any complications..however there was sooo many train delays coming back it was ridiculous.

Until next time, Ashadah Austin
