STYLE GURU BIO: Rachel Bimonte

Hey Fashionistas! Who is ready for some RAD fashion this summer? I know I am! Welcome back everyone, cheers to the end of school and the start of freedom…I mean summer!

However, for all you working Fashionistas who have jobs this summer, I know you are with me…this adult stuff is hard isn’t it? What can be easy about summer though is having great style without trying too hard.

Summer style is the best. You can look fabulous and you don’t have to add a scarf or gloves or even a hat! However, I do encourage hats as you can see from the pictures above.

Summer for me is all about being a minimalist—you can achieve this by having one focal point of an outfit such as my denim dress (which by the way, I see tons of Fashionistas rocking these days). With that being said, minimally dressing up a main focal point can be the best part. I chose to add a beach hat, a silver watch with some silver accent rings that I wear everyday and my new favorite summer essential—my Ray-Ban sunglasses!

The best part about this outfit is that there are so many options to pick from when it comes to shoes. I chose a strappy white sandal, but a pair of wedges would look great for a night on the town accompanied by a light sweater. What would also look great is a pair of white sneakers to downplay the outfit but still look super stylish.

The best part of the changing of the seasons is taking your old clothes out of the closet and reminding yourself of everything you own…who knew! It is almost like going shopping in your old closet.

Be on the lookout for some great fashion this summer and as always, keep in mind outfits that you can take from day to night (almost every outfit), along with outfits that you can take pieces from other seasons and make them relevant. Lastly, always rock a good neutral. Those are my three favorite fashion guidelines to live by and they will come up a lot in my posts so look out and even try them out.

Until next time, let’s cheers to a RAD summer and ’tis the season for white pants and shoes which is of course the best season!
