STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: All About Good Vibes!

From the African print ribbon tied around his straw hat to the light wash paint splatter Vans, my attempt to dodge New York’s summer sun went left when I turned right into this Fashionisto’s path. As I walked closer to this designer from Trinidad, his festive floral print vest with distressed hems really screamed summer time to me and drew me in more. Floral prints are a summer staple but this future icon’s outfit gave floral prints a whole new city meets island vibe. The unfinished hems on the placket and arm holes gave it a edgy look similar to the distressed trend that has been prominent in fashion for the past couple of seasons.
As we shared our ideas about fashion and design I realized that his sense of style was magnetic. I found by myself captivated by all the other pieces of his outfit. His look is super eclectic because he draws inspirations from so many places. Did I forget to mention that this fashion designer created this outfit himself! Urban silhouettes with a cool tropical touch is the best way to describe the clothing that this designer makes and wears.
So if your asking yourself how can you put a twist on the classic floral print top here is a couple of tips.Try to find a shirt with a contrasting placket like this Fashionisto’s; a shirt with vibrant prints or a unique pattern.
