We are officially entering the heat wave of summer. The weather has gone to extreme heat in Richmond. The swelltering heat of summer can be both good and bad, often depending on what you are wearing. This Fashionista picked the perfect look for the extreme summer heat. This look has a vibe of an updated or even contemporary take on boho style. The woven lightweight ivory top is exquisite. It truly exudes an at-ease-summertime vibe. The long fringe accentuates movement and makes the outfit so fun. The long fringe style has been trending in swimwear as well, seen from Beyonce’s advertisement for H&M. Many associate this look with the “hippie” styles of ’60s and ’70s. I love that era in fashion, and love it when you can spot trends that correlate to that time period. There is something so beautiful and natural about the styles of those times.
The Fashionista pairs the lovely top with jean shorts, and an interesting footwear choice. I love the shoe and sock combination this Fashionista wore because it brought a completely new dynamic to the look. I believe this is where the contemporary twist comes into place. The look is a thick cuban heel black shoe. The understated elegance is lovely, and very unique to summer footwear styles. I love that the Fashinista wore black socks with the shoe as it is often the small details that elevate a look.
One Small Change: Swap the shoes for some combat boots and you have a fun, interesting look for a concert. Fashionistas and Fashionistos, stay cool this summer by wearing beautiful, breathable clothing that moves with you!
