Even without the neon bib necklace, this Fashionista would have been sporting one of my favorite looks. With the chain, she’s basically wearing my summer uniform; she might as well be wearing pieces from my own closet, but I love the way she’s brought them all together. Her chartreuse and turquoise beads contrast with the warm hues of her printed maxi while her gray tee complements it. And while she could have tucked the shirt in — making for a cleaner, prettier look — she chose the bohemian route and knotted it up instead. For a finishing touch, she piled on some bracelets (one of which is the exact same blue as the shade in her choker). So while she doesn’t match perfectly, she achieves a funky sort of vibe that looks effortlessly cool. Plus, she’s got killer confidence (and did I mention a pair of really awesome shades?).

How To: If you’ve never tried on a look like Jordan’s, it’s easy to learn how. The key is to remember that each component of your outfit depends on the others. In other words, this might require a little bit of shopping. First, start with the skirt. Here’s an Ikat style from Calypso St. Barth that would go with this leopard tee from YesStyle (especially since the cat's ears are baby pink). Add a few crystals, strung through some eye-catching ribbon from Endless, and you’ve got a very similar ensemble. Option two starts with this number from Phase Eight. Tie up one of my favorite StyleMint crew necks, and complete with this statement bauble from Stephan & Co. (if you like Jordan’s necklace, you’ll definitely love this one). For further inspiration, check out these Fashionistas from California Polytechnic State and University of Toronto. They look just as cute, but while Jordan prefers boho, it’s clear that these two are crazy for vintage.
