Ladies, I have groundbreaking news for you all! Headbands are not, I repeat not, only perfect for bad hair days, but also stylish for any hair day. Just take a took at this week’s Fashionista; her blond hair looks just as amazing as her striped headband. My fellow Fashionistas adding a headband doesn’t mean it’s a bad hair day, but it does mean you know how to look good this summer.
Name: Lauren Slavin
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?
Lauren Slavin: I’m wearing a navy blue Theory top, white jean shorts by Klique B and a patterned headband from Forever 21. My bag is by Balenciaga, the watch is Michael Kors and my bracelets are from a local boutique.
CF: How do you describe your style?
LS: I would describe my style as edgy, but casual. I love feeling comfortable and confident in what I am wearing. I normally will dress up a casual outfit by throwing on lots of jewelry or a cool pair of shoes.
CF: I can’t help but notice your fabulous blue Balenciaga bag! What does a Fashionista like you always carry in her handbag?
LS: In my balenciaga bag I always carry my Tory Burch wallet, car keys and a small cosmetic bag with lipstick, mascara and a small mirror. Every girl needs a little lipstick to smear on through out the day. I also carry my aviator sunglasses and my cell phone, of course.
CF: Sometimes it’s easiest to wear solid colors, but how can you add prints and patterns to your look?
LS: It’s so easy to throw on solids and call it a day, but a great way to add some pattern or prints is with a headband, a bag, funky jewelry or an interesting pair of shoes. I love to layer a couple of necklaces, throw on a headband or grab my favorite blue handbag before I walk out the door.
How To: White shorts are even more important than jean shorts for the summer. Therefore, a pair like these are essential for your day to day wardrobe. Tie-front shirts are a cute and fun way to show a little skin and rock your inner Daisy Duke. Personally, I love navy, coral, hot pink and mint with anything white. Next, find a headband thats full of bright colors or designs. Top it all off with a bag that draws attention like this season’s Rebecca Minkoff baby bag or a Proenza Schouler mailbag.
