We all get dressed in the morning but there is a difference between dressing up and being a stylish fashionista. A fashionista is like a hunter always on the lookout for what's hot and new to ensure that she is always stylish and fashionable.
Here is a few of my favourite bits to ensure that we all stay stylish and fashionable
The floor length jacket or fine knit is a great way to update your short shorts and crop t-shirt and layering always adds a bit of interest to any look, "I am loving" this knitted dress in rose gold from Missguided

Culottes' keeps on making a comeback year after year and this Spring/Summer season they are back in store. This no fuss trend is great for day or night and works for either short or tall girls. It adds shape to tomboy figures and creates the illusion of a small waist.
Culottes are the same shape as an A-line skirt so proportions are important when wearing them.
If you doing a casual look with flat sandals or pumps then go for a slightly longer style.

Prints are always fun to wear and if you bold enough match the print of your culottes with the same print top and wear it like a one-piece jumpsuit.
Short girls opt for pointed flats which will elongate your leg. Pairing them with stiletto, then choose a pair that is just below your knee creating the illusion of longer legs.
For the Apple shape figure wear your culottes with a crop top, to define and highlight your waist and if you are wearing it to the office go for a longer top or blouse that you can tuck in.

A monochromatic look can give the appearance of length, the right pair of culottes can help you to maximize this elongating effect. With black being a popular choice for a monochromatic look because it makes you look taller as well as slimmer. Pair a top and culottes in matching colours for a monochromatic look and wear heels with it to give your extra length.

Culottes comes in different lengths so make sure that you choose the best length for your legs , its needs to stops mid-calf, giving the appearance that you are wearing a swingy skirt.
If you do not have a pair yet, do not be afraid to get a pair as with the right layering and styling, they can bring out the best in all figure shapes and heights.
Denim on denim for breakfast, this is simple enough look but be aware or you might get it wrong so;
1) Never wear denim accessories, like handbags or denim shoes, with your look, because you do not want to look like a denim tree.
2) Use shades and shapes that flatters your skin tone and body shape, lighter shades draws the eye to the body parts they cover and darker shades has a slimming effect. So it is best to wear the lighter shade on top and the darker shade on the bottom.
3) Dress up your look with a pair of statement heels or flaming red lips
The Gingham trend is one of my favourites this season, made popular by style icons like Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn during the 50's and 60's. This preppy print is easy to wear with a ladylike feel. Pair it, for lunch with the girls, with a figure hugging pencil skirt and a flirty off the shoulder Bardot top for a Cute and sexy look.
This floral Cami dress is perfect for a Diner date, outlines your curves and defines your waist while showing of just a bit of leg with the slight slit on the one side. Remember if you are wearing Tropical print, tone it down with neutral accessories like a belt, sandals or shoulder bag.
