BEAUTY BAR: Top Knotch

To me, summer is about keeping it simple. Life is meant to be easier and more fun. As the temperature goes up, your stress level should go down. Shouldn’t your style reflect that?

This Fashionista kept it simple and easy with a classic black maxi dress. She let the rest of her look take her outfit from super simple to super cute.  Her sandals are gray, brown and gold, adding a bit of variety in color to her outfit. Her bracelets are simple yet elegant, and make her outfit classy. Her wishbone earrings are simple yet on-trend, and her wayfarers allow her to beat the glaring sun in style.

This Fashionista’s look is taken up a notch by her topknot. While topknots have been in style for a while, they are still having a moment. And why not? They’re perfect for summer! They’re an easy way to beat the heat while still looking stylish.

Since summer’s all about keeping it simple, messy topknots are where it’s at. They’re cute while being low maintenance.  While topknots are simply an elevated bun, they are very versatile. They can be casual, professional or dressy, and work with just about any outfit. This Fashionista went with a messier topknot to keep her look casual.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To recreate this topknot, you won’t need much. While you may want a spritz of hairspray, a hairbrush and a hair tie should be all you need to do the trick. This Fashionista simply flipped her hair upside down and tied it up in a messy bun on top of her head.
