COUNTRYSIDE

by Aileen Belmonte

Dress c/o 6KS
PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE Ankle-strap Heels
VINTAGE Bag

Sometimes I feel like I have one too many floral dresses. Still, each dress is different and unique. For this certain piece, doesn't it give off a certain countryside vibe? Maybe it's the play of blue and yellow hues, maybe it's its ladylike silhouette. I can't quite place my finger on it, but this dainty little dress from 6KS will definitely fit in any southern sweetheart's wardrobe.

I felt like I wanted to maintain the overall simplicity of this dress, so I chose to keep my accessories subtle and neutral. My favorite add-on is this vintage, basket-weave handbag. Isn't it absolutely lovely? With a pair of nude pumps, this look was ready to go!

HIS AND HERS

by Aileen Belmonte

Plaid Shirt
Lace Skirt c/o STYLEMOI
ZARA Boots
VINTAGE Bag

Today's look is a mashup of staples from both menswear and womenswear. I'm almost sure that every guy out there has at least one plaid shirt in his closet. Likewise, every woman appreciates the femininity of lace. Opposites they may be apart, together they give you one cool, streetstyle-worthy outfit. I also love how this casual plaid top balances this dressier skirt from STYLEMOI. So girls, time to borrow stuff from the boys (...and probably wear it better than they do haha)!

WHITE OUT

 by Aileen Belmonte

Textured Sweater c/o BLACKFIVE FASHION
BAYO Trousers
ZARA Heels
VINTAGE Bag

This isn't the first, and it definitely won't be the last time I'll be wearing white. Despite the fact that I wear white EACH AND EVERY SINGLE DAY OF MY LIFE as a med student, this trend still tops my list. If it's chic and crisp casual that you're going for, this is a great option. I love how white is young, fresh, and bright, but also more mature and sophisticated. 

Some of you may argue that the lack of color in this look is too boring for your taste. Well, how about we take a cue from this BLACKFIVE FASHION Sweater? If you're missing out on colors, you can try making up for that through textures. It's definitely fun to experiment with different fabrics. You'd be surprised how even the subtlest texture can make all the difference! Would you agree?
