Today’s Fashionista is the perfect example of how a rainy Sunday afternoon can be fierce and casual at the same time. I spent the weekend in Fort Lauderdale, and it was pouring rain 24/7. What I love about today’s look, is how she managed to be comfortable and still look sexy! She is wearing her favorite pair of shorts with TOMS, perfect for Sunday afternoons. Her twist was adding a leopard button-down shirt. The leopard print is her take on feminine and sassy Sundays. Her hair was wavy and her metallic accessories were on point, which made me wonder why do we have to ever be on a “lazy Sunday” mood when you could look this good?
The greatest thing about this outfit is the versatility of wearing separates. This basically means that you can wear each piece in this look over and over, while creating completely different looks just by mixing things up a bit! The shorts are a must-have for our wardrobes, mostly because they can be dressed up or down. You can simply add heels to this look and be ready for a night out with your friends in a matter of seconds. The button-down shirt is excellent for these first months of the fall season because it is not as “summery” as a sleeveless top, and not as “wintery” as a sweater.
You can also dress it up or down, switching the shorts for a maxi skirt or skinny black jeans. Button-down shirts can be worn with the first couple of buttons unbuttoned, or buttoned to the top for an edgier look. I love this trend of buttoning a shirt completely and adding a bib necklace to really stand out from the crowd. The trend of shorts and button-down shirts has become very popular among celebrities and fashion socialites such as Olivia Palermo, Kourtney Kardashian and Miranda Kerr.
