Vamping up classic fashion duos is like pulling the center lever at the frozen yogurt shop—the classic flavors combine to complement one another, swirling to create something divinely new.
Fashion duos like denim, crop tops and high-waisted bottoms are timeless pieces. However, while the classics and the timeless have their respected occasions, this summer is about taking those duos and giving them a summer 2016 twist with just one word: texture.
You can beat the heat by pairing your favorite crop top with something high-waisted. This creates a classic duo, but remember: it’s texture that turns heads. This Fashionista layered her Forever 21 mustard suede crop top over her detailed lace Free People black bralette to create depth and dimension. Throw on your favorite sunnies and the heat is beat.
This Fashionista saw that the yellow in her top and the green tint in her Ray-Ban sunglasses inspired the daisies on her skirt to bloom. To ensure your outfit really pops, focus less on colors that match and more on colors that coordinate. Crop tops are perfect for highlighting specific colors in a floral skirt and leather cuffs and bracelets are perfect for making those leather boots feel included.
Whenever florals and boots are involved, you can almost always count on something denim to enhance your look further. As the sun sinks to the horizon, so does the temperature, so throw on your favorite jean jacket and this outfit goes from day to night.
Seeking any summer adventure that awaits her, this Fashionista also slipped on her favorite Frye boots that are the perfect addition to complete any daytime outfit. For the #RAD hot summer days or just to dress things up a bit, slip on a pair of flats whether they be brown or black leather sandals or flats that add a pop of color, you’ll have a prideful stride.
How to: While seeking out the pieces of today’s classic combos, keep a keen eye for unique texture and bright color. Sometimes the colors, patterns and textures of your ensemble clash—but don’t fret. Start with one patterned piece, and complete your outfit by coordinating solid but deliciously textured colors. Texas girls and texture girls will be turning heads this summer for sure!
