Maybe not my best photo skills, but definitely by far the best look. Today’s report represents the epitome of my inspiration. This is why I love CollegeFashionista. I love meeting girls with exceptional fashion sense that are absolutely ecstatic to be recognized for their street style. Her smile brightens up the shot more than her bright vest, but either way, she rocked it.
This Fashionista accessorized her plain gray shirt and dark wash jeans with a cool, loud vintage vest.
The color grabs your attention as it matches the bright sunny day. Her hat then tones it down, giving her such a cool, trendy look. The morning I took this photo, I had on a pair of awesome heeled boots but I took them off because I felt too “dressed up” in a sea of drowsy college kids. If only I saw her before for a little inspiration. She proudly reflected her sweet personality with a bright vest and even more daringly, framed her pretty face with a bold, black hat.
Hats are taking over. Fedoras, sun hats, beanies you name it, they’re everywhere. But why is it that wearing one seems so bold? It’s easy to throw on a baseball cap and blend in almost going unnoticed. But when placing a trendy hat upon your head you automatically command attention. Positive attention, of course. Last time these so structured and serious hats were in was back in the decades of entertainment, the ’30s up to the ’60s when hip-hop and blues was all around and ever-changing. I have a feeling that’s why when we see people wearing hats they seem exceptionally trendy or cool. Because the last time these hats were in they were often associated with stage life, entertainers and the elite.
Nonetheless, hats are in. No more tan lines from your sunglasses this summer, you’ll have a cool cap to block the sun from your face. Pick your favorite style, big and floppy or slim and sleek. Either way, it’s an accessory that’s basically a necessity for this summer, so be sure to get one before you head off on vacation!
