Today’s Fashionista brings us a taste of the easy going chic mingled well with an effortlessly cool image. And, she achieves it by simply adding a few tweaks to an otherwise normal outfit. The details of an outfit always make or break the look, so take a leaf out of this Fashionista’s fashion book for advice on how to look amazing on the run. But firstly, going top down, I have to remark on her hairstyle, which is combed and quiffed perfectly. This is a style that is far more effective than it is difficult to do, so try it out.
The iconic T-shirt has long been heralded as a symbol of effortless chic and men’s clothing is the way to go on this one. I have mentioned a few times that on occasion, men’s clothing can be far more interesting than women’s, and it applies to the iconic T-shirt, as well. The sloppy cut flatters most shapes and they tend to have better images on the front. A vaguely similar one can be found at Urban Outfitters. This Fashionista has done well to tuck the T-shirt into those lovely high-waisted shorts. Be careful because otherwise men’s T-shirts can swamp if worn loose.
Speaking of those shorts, aren’t they brilliantly high-waisted? High-waisted shorts are very good for slimming the waist and creating one from a baggy top, which is handy when one is wearing, for instance, an iconic T-shirt. What makes this look so interesting, however, is the simple matter of cinching the shorts in with the belt she has on. This adds to the idea of giving the outfit more of a waist and gives an indication that this Fashionista has tried harder with her outfit than meets the eye. For our Fashionistos who want a similar style, tucking a T-shirt into a pair of colourful jeans can be just as effective. Try to stick to faded and interesting colours like the shorts or even find coloured denim shorts for men, as summer is fast approaching. A very summery men’s version can be found on River Island.
Finally, this week’s Fashionista keeps warm and makes the look even more sloppy and chic by pulling on an interestingly patterned cardigan over the top of her hoody, for double the warmth. Charity shops will no doubt boast an entire wall of these, oversized and bedraggled, but comfortable and stylish all the same.
