As Ritu Kumar once said, “Denim has always been an everyday symbol for style.” Denim is always a piece of your wardrobe to invest in because it has been in fashion since 1873, and, let’s be real, it’s not going anywhere. I’m huge on having pieces in my wardrobe that will carry me through a myriad of different looks. I’m also a huge proponent of color for the summer. When this Fashionista came to visit me at my styling job at the New York location of Scout and Molly’s, I introduced her to new, quality brands that deserve a peep.
One of my fashion icons is WeWoreWhat’s Danielle Bernstein, who is an avid supporter ofAGOLDE denim. When I first began working this summer, I was so excited to find that we carry the brand. These denim shorts fromAGOLDE are high-rise and are long enough that you won’t be afraid of showing too much skin. AGOLDE is a brand to invest in, and when you get your hands on the product you can feel the quality that will take you in for years to come. We college kids are on a budget, and it’s nice to have something that will last you beyond your years in college and remain stylish. This Fashionista felt super comfortable in the pair of shorts we styled, and loved how they had a baggy fit.
It’s really important to not sacrifice animals for style. Society can all agree that the look of animal products are beautiful, but the means of getting the product is gruesome. Matt and Nat is a luxury vegan leather brand from Canada. You may have seen this brand before on popular websites like ASOS. This light pink bag is the perfect summer bag that adds a pop of a color to any look. It is big enough to fit all the essentials, but doesn’t overwhelm the outfit.
Bohemian brand Bishop and Young is known for loose-fitting garments. This loose patterned crop top has a laced-up top. Lace-up tops have been super in this summer, and the colors of this top can carry into the fall season.
A perfect accessory to this outfit was a belt. This particular fringe taupe belt is from ADA collection. There are several ways to wrap this belt, but this Fashionista and I styled it so that the fringe ends wrap in the front. The taupe color perfectly accents the pinks in this outfit and also the deep blue denim wash.
