What does a fierce girl boss wear on Casual Fridays? Preppy classics, that’s what! Our Spring Fashion Girl Boss Fierce Look 8 has you covered. The destination shirt (and destination shirts are always in because who wants to forget their trip to the capital of fashion?) paired with a high-waisted skirt is off-duty, casual style girl boss. It’s still professional, but the focus is approachable and friendly. The trend from high-end designers is toward what some are calling modest fashion, which is reflected by longer hemlines and covered arms. This skirt is a bit on the shorter side of the modest trend, but fits comfortably into the preppy and classic category. On a side note, we were so tempted to cut the shoes out of the picture. In hindsight, the shoes just don’t work with this look. It’s not that the shoes are a mismatch with the style, the problem is, instead, with the houndstooth pattern. An outfit like this works best when you keep the footwear simple. A neutral black or brown Oxford with a pair of black lace socks would finish this look off better than the heels.
In all actuality, this photo had already been axed from the Always Uttori 2017 Fashion Trends lineup. It was on the chopping block because of the shoe issue, and because it was taken with our old camera. It was resurrected because we miscalculated how many photos we needed for this month. When we realized that we were a look short, we frantically looked through our unpublished store and decided on this one.
This look is more classic than trend-driven. A slightly longer hem-length puts this in the “modest” trend category, as far as new trends go, but classic prep is a better classification.
OH, FOR FASHION’S SAKE!
