For every four season Fashionista out there, living in a place where each season means a new wardrobe, this Fashionista exhibits the perfect STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK for you. No need to break the bank to keep up to trend, simply revamp some of your other season styles and tweak for the summer!
This Fashionista rocks gray/blue corduroy overalls, a black slouchy T-shirt and distressed black combat boots all in eighty degree heat without breaking a sweat. The trick? A pair of killer sunglasses and short sleeve top to create a summer vibe with winter styles.
Combat boots have quickly become a must have for every Fashionista, but don’t let them lay lonely next to your winter coats, pair them with a cute floral sundress or boyfriend shorts to add some edge to your outfit! Swapping your favorite gladiator sandals for a pair of lightweight combat boots instantly adds an easy, effortless and fashion forward vibe to your outfit. I especially love to pair the edgier boot with super girly styles to add some interesting contrast. Think a chiffon floral high-low maxi or polka dot sundress with some studded boots.
While combat boots have become a fashion staple, overalls burst onto the scene this summer with a surprising popularity that can’t be ignored. So, if you don’t happen to already have a pair waiting to be styled in your closet I totally understand. This fashion savvy Fashionista rocks the pant version in a corduroy material, but there are countless styles and cuts of this piece to try out.
Go into any of your favorite stores and I guarantee there is an overall piece on a mannequin or a front of store rail being advertised as the new hot item. Try out a pair of short cut overalls, or “shortalls” as they’ve been dubbed, in a basic jean wash. For a more polished look you can try out an all black or all white pair to style with a patterned shirt or bright shoes. There are also adorable patterned versions of the overall trend in floral, striped or printed.
This summer, revamp your old styles with new trends. Take an old black T-shirt, like this Fashionista sports, and pair with your new overall find or recreate your favorite sundress look with combat boots. Your winter favorites like flannel shirts, leather jackets and boots all make for great additions to your more feminine summer looks.
This Fashionista proves summer style has more to offer than maxi dresses or floral sundresses if you know how to reinvent the pieces you’ve shoved to the back of your closet along with your winter blues!
