This week in Maryland, I spotted a Fashionista near the UMD Circle sporting one of the season’s most popular street style trends, custom denim. Whether dressed up or down, distressed or embellished, all Fashionistas/os must have statement denim in their summer fashion arsenal.
Finding the perfect custom denims can be a struggle, but if you have a keen eye for finding treasures in the racks, try visiting a store that offers unique pieces, like these found at Hot Topic. If you are one who enjoys creating fashion magic with your own hands, try making your own custom denim by watching one of the thousands of DIY tutorials on Youtube. Both ways are great alternatives to get a personalized pair of jeans.
For hanging out and studying on campus, this Maryland Fashionista combined a pair of distressed denim jeans with a floral top from Garage (GRG) and a pair of flip flops. By coupling the distressed jeans with the more feminine top, she gave some edge to her outfit, allowing her personal style to stand out. For accessories, this Fashionista chose classic pieces to complement her look. Sunglasses, like these from Urban Outfitters, a matching black leather belt and a conch shell necklace serve as add-ons that pull her look together.
One Simple Change: To make this outfit great for attending a UMD sports event, keep on the University of Maryland flip flops that this Fashionista wore, and switch out her top for this Maryland T-shirt by adidas. The combination of the edginess of the distressed jeans and the vintage look of the T-shirt lets this outfit stand out in the sea of Terp gear at campus sporting events.
