Hey, everyone! These days, I’ve been making a conscious effort to dress in more conservative colors, but when I saw this metallic skirt at Forever 21, I couldn’t resist. I decided to play up the mermaid vibes with purple lipstick and added my cursor earrings as an homage to the cyber kawaii Tumblr-era of my personal style (if you knew both me and my Internet presence anytime between 2012-2014, you’ll know exactly what I’m referring to). This skirt is really vibrant and fun and I love the zipper detail in the front. I’d say pairing this skirt with neutrals like black or white would be the best way to style this statement piece. It seems like nowadays, mainstream stores are taking style cues from the cyber kawaii grunge side of Tumblr that I used to be so obsessed with- seriously, where was all this merch five years ago šŸ˜?!

Mesh is definitely having a moment- street style stars have been seen sporting fishnet tights, mesh dresses, and all kinds of see-through shirts. I scored a super affordable mesh shirt on Amazon to get in on this trend- and I was so excited to finally have a visible way to sport my Calvin Klein bralette. I tucked the shirt into my black skinny jeans, threw on my Nikes and my vintage Levi’s jacket for a look with that classic urban edge. A bold lip added further contrast to my otherwise colorless ensemble. I’m excited to experiment with layering this top by wearing different bralettes underneath and maybe even layering dresses on top. Have you styled a sheer top?
