Here’s How I Slay Flashy and Stay Classy

5 looks that get looks.

Fashion means a lot more than more skin. I’m sure a lot of other shopaholics would echo that sentiment along with me. Of course, I totally understand and embrace the power behind being confident and loving your own body through clothes. But I think that social media and the Instagram influencer craze of recent years has perpetuated an untrue, and arguably unhealthy, fashion myth: in order to be “truly fashionable,” you have to wear less.

The thing is, I know so many people out there that absolutely kill the style game in midi skirts or blazer jackets. I don’t think that wearing less revealing clothes means you are any less confident in your body. I, for sure, am not! As a Christian who takes her faith seriously, I often tend to cover up a little more skin. (Although, I definitely wear the occasional crop top here and there.) Whatever the reason, I’m sure there are others out there who echo the desire for a killer style without completely showing off their killer bod. 😉

Spiel aside, I’ve collected a different array of looks and tips to help you on that journey.


I mean is layering ever going to go out? All the big fashion girls are on it. Anyone who layers well instantly looks like they know what they’re doing.

Try pairing a crop top with a solid long sleeve or turtleneck. Bonus points if its mesh, which adds an edgy texture to any outfit. Then, tuck both layers into high-waisted bottoms to accentuate the waistline.

You can also layer dresses, but pay attention to necklines. Anything with a high neck—such as a crew, mock, or turtleneck top—works best when layering with a dress like this.

Mono-chrome or Duo-chrome Fits

Matching two bright colors in one outfit creates a really bold statement, while keeping an outfit one consistent, neutral shade makes for a subtler, crispness.

If you’re going for brighter colors, I recommend an analogous palette to keep the look together (such as pairing pink and purple together). This maintains an ‘everyday’ vibe.

Streetwear is literally one of my favorites. You can feel like the coolest kid around in basically sweats and chunky sneakers.

Pair some comfy joggers with a high-rise or chunky shoe, and then throw on an oversized hoodie or crewneck. Here’s some more inspiration because I truly love this trend.

Suit Up

Wearing a longline or boyfriend blazer instantly makes any outfit chicer. Invest in a black or neutral blazer to start, then experiment around with gingham or brighter prints. A casual blazer outfit? A graphic tee and jeans. To step it up, match the color of your underlying top with your pants.

Chunky Additions

The more chains, the edgier! Wear over a solid colored top or a graphic tee to take an outfit to the Instagram level.
