Hey, Fashionistas/os! Ah, it’s finally officially summer, and the Fashionistas/os are out and about, shopping and enjoying the warm weather. The weather here in Connecticut has been on and off, with rain one day and sunshine the next, so when the day is hot and beautiful, we Fashionistas/os must take full advantage and whip out the hot outfits!
Yesterday, grabbing lunch in New Haven with a fellow Sacred Heart Style Guru, we ran into a set of two very trendy twins. They were both dressed to impress while visiting a sibling at Yale University, but I was mostly drawn to this Fashionista’s outfit for its simplicity but also its stylish and unique details. Her outfit is very simple and casual, but her accessories and details of the look are what make it trendy and fashion-forward.
The Fashionista wears a loose, bohemian white peasant top that looks casual and comfy. What makes it cool is the black tassel that ties at the top, making a unique sort of peephole with the tassel hanging as an accessory. Looking more at the top’s details, it’s designed with a simple but interesting black Aztec pattern. She also adds a couple of necklaces, which are dangling with different charms and shapes, to add a little gleam that correlates with the bohemian style.
Moving downward, let’s get to her wrist! This Fashionista is right on point with her new Apple Watch, which is a new and fascinating gadget that we’re all curious about, on top of merely admiring its beauty! She can easily show off her new wrist candy by clutching on to her simply awesome vintage green purse. Her whole outfit is plain and neutral, and the cool vintage bag, with a long strap and big gold buckle, give the outfit a great pop of color.
Moving past her perfectly skinny, classic blue jeans from Zara, we finally put our focus on her shoes! This year, when I think of trends to die for, I think: fringe, fringe, fringe! Her pair of black fringed sandals with buckles and short wooden block heels perfectly tie the whole look together. The fringe perfectly correlates with today’s trends and the bohemian trend and style that she has going on. The sandals are heeled, which dresses the outfit up a bit, while still staying casual and comfortable because of the shortness and thickness of the heel.
How To: Want to switch up your style a bit, or know how to create the same look for casual summer shopping days or lunch dates? Throw on your favorite pair of blue skinny jeans, pair them with a loose, bohemian peasant top, solid or with a pattern like this Fashionista’s and add some long but simple necklaces. Complete the look with a cute pair of fringed heeled sandals, along with a long-strapped bag that adds color.
