STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Geometric Print Basics

It’s World Cup season and I have found that watching the women’s futbal tournament is like watching two lions fight in the grasslands. The players are aggressive, brutal and seem not to regard rules. The games are truly amazing because they are so different from other futbal matches I have seen. They really are more like rugby matches, and that is exciting. Just like the World Cup matches are riveting, this Fashionista decided to take a non-traditional approach to her summer style. She kept her outfit neutral and cool with the exception of a geometric sweater. And that deliberate defiance of classic summer colors and styles is what makes this Fashionista’s style so interesting.

This Fashionista chose distinct geometric patterns to make her look stand out. One of the popular summer styles is to pair vibrant colors with neutrals, but this Fashionista chose to take a more traditionally fall color scheme with a black horizontal geometric sweater and pair it with a neutral short. Geometric prints, tribal prints and animal prints are a great summer option because they give vibrancy to an outfit without the use of bright summer colors.

Just because summer temperatures are sweltering does not mean you have to sacrifice style and comfort. So wear your favorite print with super cool neutrals to rock an alternative summer look. Also add a pastel pink, blue or green tote to give your outfit a pop of color.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I love these shorts. The color is so pretty and light for the summer season and they pair really well with my print sweaters. I recommend summer sweaters because they are great when entering different climates like buildings and are super versatile.”
