Last week, we held a challenge for all of our Facebook and Twitter fans. We asked, "How do you wear white after Labor Day?" With so many great replies, it was hard to chose just one winner! Ultimately, we chose our winner...dun da da daaa, drumroll please! ...TAMIKA from Alexandria, VA! We think Tamika did a fantastic job of showing us a simple way of bringing white into a fall wardrobe fashionably. Her crisp white blazer really stands out against a black blouse and trousers. Wearing a neutral-colored shoe (yes, black is a neutral color!) helps to make this look fall appropriate. We would also recommend throwing in some leopard accessories, like a sassy thin belt or small handbag, for an extra punch of trendy fall style. Congrats to Tamika and thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge! Here's a little more about our winner and her fashion style:
Fashion style: Tamika loves classic looks with an edge. Adding a twist to her looks with color, accessories and mixing unexpected pieces is her self-proclaimed specialty.
On breaking fashion faux pas: "Taking a fashion risk is exciting and tests a girl's confidence and courage," says Tamika, "and can often pay off - you can become a style icon!"
