French braids have become the go-to look of summer 2016. Double French braids are allowing us Fashionistas to put in minimal effort with our hair, which I’m especially grateful for in this summer heat. While the effort is little to none, the look still comes across as very put together yet effortless. French braids have been appearing constantly on social media, being rocked by many celebrities including Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and of course the Kardashians. With this look popping up everywhere, it’s hard to ignore let alone not try it out yourself.
This specific Fashionista utilized the French braid trend to pull off a boho festival ensemble. She rocked the double braids with a strappy crop top, distressed denim shorts and a slouched lightweight cardigan. She also threw in some round cat eyes to spice it up, and finally completed the look with slingback fabric sandals. The sandals pull the fun and free look together by giving it a sassy yet comfortable feel. This look could be worn for numerous occasions. This Fashionista may slay this ensemble during a day spent out and about with friends and family, or a nighttime event, such as a concert. Overall, this Fashionista’s personal style is very relaxed and free spirited. She aims for comfort, while still evoking a very fashion forward and liberating vibe.
How To: To make this Fashionista’s look your own, throw on your favorite crop top or graphic tank with a pair of cut-offs. Toss on a pair of your go-to sandals, or even your favorite pair of sneakers. Finally, watch a couple YouTube tutorials and get that hair braided back so you can slay that fierce look all day long.
