I generally like experimenting with new trends, but we can all agree that some are harder to pull off than others. Thanks to "Do Try This at Home" in the March issue, I feel newly empowered to conquer all of the street style looks on my Instagram feed. The idea of layering a shirt under a dress initially seemed daunting, but something simple, like this crisp white button-down, was easy to pull off without totally overwhelming the outfit. Plus, it made this patterned mini really pop.
