STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Summer Time Is Suede Time

Can this Fashionista possibly be any more put together? I spotted her walking to class on a sizzling summer day, but she breezed by other sweaty students effortlessly and comfortably. How could she wear suede so perfectly on this blazing hot day? Why are her lips so matte? Where can I buy everything she is wearing?

As it turns out, the suede is not so bad since it is both sleeveless and cropped. Plus, she chose to wear a maxi skirt on the bottom so that she could get a breeze going but still make the crop top look stylish. Personally, I am not a fan of low-rise bottoms and crop tops and this Fashionista agreed wth me. The long skirt also makes her 5’6″ figure look lengthened!

My favorite part of her outfit was how she paired the suede top with the suede hat. Sometimes wearing two similar textures and colors in one outfit can look too matchy-matchy, but this Fashionista made it work. Her suede items flowing well with golden tones in her maxi skirt.

This Fashionista kept accessories to a minimum, but each piece maintained the overall casual tone of the outfit. I am in love with the sunglasses she is sporting, and I have seen a lot of people wearing similar ones lately. Unfortunately, they are not right for my face shape, but otherwise I would be sold on my own pair! Our Fashionista wore several different rings and a necklace, keeping the jewelry simple. She is also sporting Kylie Cosmetics on her lips, completely rocking the Koko K shade.
