STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Let's Get Nautical

Graphic T-shirts are often tossed aside as being too gaudy or tacky. However, this Fashionista created the perfect ensemble by making the shirt the centerpiece of her outfit. Graphic T-shirts are underrated because people often see them as too childish, but this Fashionista shows how to bring a chic and fluid sense of style using this top. Also, graphic T-shirts enable the Fashionista to express herself due to the imagery, which is what I love the most about this look.

The sheen from the gold anchor is what first attracted me to this Fashionista’s outfit and the way she kept the rest of the outfit neutral outside of some red accents is what really made it flow. I love the trend of striped shirts with different figures or symbols on them and seeing how people pull off the look. I am a lover of anything that has anchors or bows and both are often used in summer styles and patterns so this shirt was a major hit for me. Not only is this graphic T-shirt trendy but it is also very comfortable due its lightweight and soft material, making it perfect for going out for coffee with friends or a loose top to throw over a bathing suit. I also like how this Fashionista has her shirt tucked in because it looks more clean and sophisticated.

The red bow on the anchor inspired this Fashionista to push back her hair with a red bandanna, an accessory that is very common in the summer time. She also paired this look with a smear of bright red lipstick to bring out the color. I also love how this Fashionista paired her graphic T-shirt with high-waisted brass button shorts because it helps dress up the outfit while also giving it a more nautical look which is one of my favorite summer trends, especially when going to the beach. Her seashell necklace also adds to the nautical look without being too much and taking away from the outfit. Lastly, her black bow flats matched both the neutrality of her shorts and the bow from her shirt. The entirety of this Fashionista’s outfit flowed really nicely and she made something so simple look unique and well thought out.
