Frills and Stripes

Frills and Stripes

Summer is a prime opportunity. It’s a solid three months of time for relaxation, tanning, and more importantly, reinvention. Almost all of my past articles have been centered around the hustle and bustle of college life, so this semester I am beyond ready to reinvent my articles in a direction geared more toward chill, summer vibes and of course, street style.

This outfit features some of my favorite pieces for this upcoming season as well as some of the only tones I’ve been rocking for the past couple of weeks. Some may call it boring, but I call it simple. So… let’s get to it!

I paired this classic, frilly off-the-shoulder white crop top with these blue-and-white striped high-waisted pants. To top it all off, I dug up this vintage oversize denim jacket (that was actually my mom’s in the ’90s)! and threw on my classic Stan Smith’s to put together the whole outfit. To accessorize, I layered a thin pearl choker with a longer chain featuring an inverted rose charm. The blue and white tones together are one of my personal favorite color combinations and a personal touch I really wanted to add to the outfit.

The colors aren’t the only things that I love about this outfit, though. I am obsessed with the different layers that each piece adds to the look—the crop top is fitted and feminine, the pants are flowy and fun, and the denim jacket gives the whole outfit that “boyfriend” feel while also adding structure to the look. Overall, this is perfect for those girly girls that don’t want to overdo it, something clean and simple.

I have a strong feeling this outfit will become a signature look of mine this summer and I can’t wait to share my reinvention with all of you! Are you trying out a new signature look? Comment below or tag @CFashionista in your photos!
