Championing the floral patterns and thawing out from the cold weather in Austin, Fashionistas are gearing up for the hot months ahead. As many of us are already creating epic music festival playlists (Lollapalooza this year, anyone?), another important thing to prioritize is a summer look book (because nothing screams “summer” like crop tops, sandals and crochet tanks). This Fashionista is clearly prepared, donning a whimsical and breezy pair of pom pom shorts with an oversized top and sandals. So, whether you’re festival hopping around the country or soaking up the sun at the beach, this versatile ensemble is perfect for the whatever the occasion! To learn more about how to get this look, check out what this Fashionista had to say about her savvy street style.
Name: Olivia Hutto
CF: What are you wearing today?
Olivia Hutto: I’m wearing a top from Forever 21, pom pom shorts from Langford Market, sandals from Blue Elephant, Kendra Scott earrings, J.Crew bracelets and carrying a Rebecca Minkoff satchel!
CF: If you were given a shopping spree, where would you go first and why?
OH: A shopping spree? Yes, please! I can’t say where I’d spend it, but I do have a weakness for all that sparkles!
CF: Who or what influences your style the most?
OH: My style is mostly influenced by the mood I wake up in, which isn’t always a good thing. I honestly had a sub-par sense of style until I met my best friend, Audrey, who opened my eyes to so many new and exciting things. It took many days of her telling me to go change until I developed my own eye for fashion. Now, I look to the polished and edgy Victoria Beckham and the free spirited Olsen twins for style inspiration.
CF: What do you think the most important part of an outfit is?
OH: This is a hard one, but I’m going to say shoes. Nothing can ruin an outfit more than wearing the wrong shoes.
CF: What is your favorite event to dress up for and why?
OH: Any event that requires dressing up is my favorite event! It is important that I have ample time to plan an outfit though. It sometimes takes many long hours of shopping or searching online before I find a dress or outfit that I am confident with.
How To: To create a similar outfit, seek out a pair of colorful, pattern shorts and pair them with a solid color knit or crochet top. For some added flare, look for boho chic accessories and you’re ready to go!
