After multiple sweltering days in a row, a beautiful sunny yet breezy day arrived and I knew it was the perfect time to go out Fashionisto/a spotting. These two friends were out laughing and walking down the street enjoying the Wednesday afternoon and they looked so cute together I had to get a shot of them both. I loved the compatibility of the two looks and also how comfortable in their outifits the two seemed. We see a theme of muted tones and faded denim, which is perfect for a breezy summer day.
The impacting aspects of these two looks were the simplistic aesthetic and calming nature of the two ensembles. The VCU Fashionisto has a muted blue top and salmon shorts, a go-to summer color combination for many Fashionistos. I especially loved the shoes and accessories this Fashionisto is wearing. The tan slip on canvas shoes reinforce the laid back, and serene essence of the look. I loved the Fashoinisto’s sunglasses. It is exciting to see more gentlemen taking risks with eyewear in Richmond.
The Fashionista featured this week is an image of a great look for a summer day. The faded denim dress is youthful and carefree while still pulling off a chic summer look. I especially like that the denim dress is structured with a collar and two pockets. The collar adds some structure to the dress and complements this Fashionista’s short summer haircut. Along with a great summer dress, this weeks Fashionista wore some awesome black crocheted flats. I love the strength of unique flats in footwear for women this summer.
One Small Change: Swap the Fashionistos top for a white button-up, and give our Fashionista some wedges, and these two would be ready for a casual day time date!
Fashionistos and Fashionistas, as the summer months continue to unfold, allow yourself to delve into simplistic chic summer looks, and enjoy the breeze!
