This Fashionista rocked a seemingly effortless look that’s perfect for fun summer days. A flowy tank, denim cut-offs and flip flops are the perfect recipe for carefree living and a no-fuss ensemble during the sweltering wave of heat and humidity that’s been taking over New England the past few weeks. This Fashionista keeps it boho chic with cross ladened accessories and beaded bracelets that keep the laid back vibe and keep it far from plain.
Name: Victoria Blalock
Major: Human Development
CollegeFashionista: The frayed bottoms and tears on your cut-offs are so unique. Where did you find them?
Victoria Blalock: I actually got them at a thrift shop in California when I visited last summer. I had never gone thrift shopping before, but I was very pleased with my finds.
CF: The simplicity of a solid tank top and jean shorts gives you ample room to accessorize. How did you accessorize today?
VB: Well, I always wear these two bracelets, so I automatically threw those on. And then I just picked out one pair of the five different dangly gold earrings that I rotate around every few days.
CF: Other than the classic color choice of navy, your style seems to be very different from the stereotypical New England coastal style. Has living in New England shaped or influenced your style in any way?
VB: Honestly, it hasn’t really shaped my current style at all, except for the fact that it’s always disgustingly cold so I’ve come to own a lot of big, warm sweaters and scarves. However, I DID have my big pearl necklace, double popped collar, side ponytail with a bow — typical New England preppiness style — phase in 7th grade. Thankfully for everyone, that’s come to an end!
CF: I’m sure you rocked it! What’s your favorite piece in your closet currently?
VB: I just bought a high-low strapless dress, which I have wanted for the past year, so I’d have to say that.
How To: High-waisted cut-offs are huge right now. Go for a clean-cut pair or a tattered pair like this Fashionista. Dangly gold cross earrings and an ever trendy evil-eye beaded bracelet bring it all together.
