When I think of summer, the words carefree and colorful come to mind. When I spotted this Fashionista, I was mesmerized by how well she resembled both of these traits. I spent the day exploring Willamsburg Brooklyn, where I found Smorgasburg. Smorgasburg is a market over looking the East River and the Manhattan skyline. It allows people to sample some of the best foods and drinks around. I came to Brooklyn in the hopes of tasting an array of enticing food but along the way found myself surrounded by some of the most intriguing fashion. Out of the hundreds of awesome outfits I encountered, many of which were maxi dresses, this Fashionista stood out.
When I initially saw this Fashionista, I was captivated by how well her coral tank top complements her sea foam green skirt. I’ve seen a lot of colored shorts, but colored denim skirts aren’t something I see everyday. Denim skirts are a ubiquitous item for summer, but by adding a color, the denim is given a fresh twist. The denim skirt is so versatile; this Fashionista paired her ensemble with Converse, adding a casual and comfortable vibe. Although, if she had a more formal event to attend, she could easily transform her outfit by adding a light sweater and metallic embellished sandals.
When I complimented this Fashionista on her unique necklace, she told me that she made it herself! She crafted it through Kollabara.com, a website that gives you step by step directions on how to create jewelry along with various embroidery, sewing and more. This can be a great way to create one of kind pieces that add that finishing touch to an ensemble.
The key to this Fashionista’s outfit is the way she chose two colors that contrast yet still complement each other. Color-blocking can be tricky; you want two colors that will stand out enough to make a statement without looking like you are color blind. One of the reasons I find her outfit so appealing is because it comes across as effortless yet still manages to shine through its bright colors. Her outfit truly is the epitome of summer.
