Street Style: The Suit Trend

melodiestewart.com, Top Atlanta blogger, Street style, Suit Trend

I’d just like to send out a big thanks to the person who donated this houndstooth plaid skirt suit to Goodwill. You’re the real MVP, whomever you are.

Guys, the number one item on my thrift wish list is a pant suit. I’ve been desiring a pant suit for the longest time, but coming up on this vintage green suit is the next best thing. This skirt suit is giving me “Clueless” vibes. And after more than 20 years since the movie dropped, this fashion moment is still poppin.

What’s cool about this blazer set is that I can wear it so many different ways. In today post I'm wearing it with a screen-tee and two-tone booties. However, switching out the blazer or the skirt allows me to create different looks allowing me to get the biggest bang for my buckets.

What are your thoughts on the suit trend? I'm not giving up on finding the perfect pant suit, yet this skirt suit now has a special place in my heart.

A Stylish Outfit For Christmas Dinner

Holiday Dinner Outfit, Top Atlanta Blogger, Atlanta Stylist

The days are running away from me. I literally thought I had another week before Christmas. Are you ready for Christmas? I’m looking forward to spending time with my family.

Speaking of family, I can see it now, me walking into my parents’ house with this outfit on. Funny part about it is that nobody would even be surprised. More than likely one (or both) of my sister’s would shake her had at my extra-ness and my dad would probably have  tight smile on this face, then say that’s my Melli-Ann ( btw, I have no idea why he calls me that).

Dressing up for dinner at your parents may not warrant such a “doing the most” outfit like this, but putting a little effort into your look ain’t never hurt nobody.  However, if you’re visiting your new bae’s family for the first time this holiday season, a cute look is probably a good idea.  After all first impressions are lasting and often times before you even speak, you’ve already been judged. 

Now going all out for dinner at home with your folks may get you crowned queen doing the most, yet opting for a super dope look would be awesome for Holiday parties outside the home. Whether you decide to go for a more festive look or a street chic vibe, the point is do you!

While most people would probably go with some type of Christmas garment, sequins or jeans, a comfy sweater and boots. I’m showing up in today’s look. It’s vibrant, bold and makes a statement. For some this look is too much, but for those who are up for making a statement I hope this outfit inspires you to step outside the style box and try new things.  Until next time!
