Not many Fashionistas can pull off the balance between looking edgy and looking girly at the same time. It’s a look that this Fashionista encompassed perfectly. The lacy top adds a girly sense to the outfit while the combat boots and black skirt add an edgy energy. I think that this combination of two polar opposite vibes creates a great blend to any ensemble.
Lace is lovely for all girls to own. Lace is a material that encompasses a girl’s feminine attributes and allows girls to feel graceful. I know that I love my lace wardrobe pieces I own! My favorite lace piece I own is my Free People dress. You can check out these delicate pieces here. Not only does lace project a girlish look, but it also adds texture to any outfit. You can notice the design the lace adds on the sleeves of this Fashionista’s crop top. The little flowers in the shirt match the flowers on the skirt, again tying in the summer floral scheme I addressed in my last article.
I love the skirt this Fashionista sports as well. I think skirts are great because you truly can dress them up or wear them in a very casual fashion. Although the design of this skirt is simple, the floral pattern adds the perfect pops of color to this ensemble. You can find these types of high-rise skirts at retail stores such as PacSun and Aeropostale. They’re a great summer bottom to have because they’re airy and flowy, giving you some fun movements on those summer days.
I like how this Fashionista dressed her outfit down and gave a real edge to her look by adding combat boots. Sandals would have complemented this outfit as well, but the combat boots give the look a whole new feel. Boots are perfect for a chilly summer day, giving your summer outfit a little warmth.
How To: Snag a cute skirt and pair a crop top with your bottoms. By adding a lacy shirt, you’re adding texture to the look which gives movement to your outfit. Dress it down and give the look some edge by pairing Vans or combat boots. Add a girly vibe by wearing sandals or wedges. Remember to love your lace!
