STYLE GURU STYLE: Give Me A Two-Piece

STYLE GURU STYLE: Give Me A Two-Piece

The one day I look forward to every single summer is none other than July 3rd. Yes, the day before America’s birthday is hands down one of my favorite days of the year. Each year, a local Long Island country radio station, My Country 96.1, presents The Fest. It is an all day celebration of all things country music that begins with something country music fans love, a parking lot party. The massive tailgate is then followed by several great country music acts.

Fashionistas from across the island travel to this concert each year sporting their best red, white, and beautiful looks to coincide with the patriotic theme of the concert. This year, I decided to center my look on one of summer’s biggest (and most comfortable) trends: a two-piece. The set I chose came from Mandee. I chose the embroidered red tube top and soft short set to stand out among the usual crowd of stars and stripes. I stumbled upon a cover-up from Forever 21 that just so happened to be the perfect match to the set. The white kimono with red tribal design is the exact inverse to the pattern embroidered on the top and shorts.

To complete the look, I added faux leather perforated booties in a cognac color. They were perfect for hanging out at the tailgate and for walking on the grass on the hill where the concert was held. Finally, I added cat-eye Prada sunglasses as a final touch. A pair of shades was incredibly necessary for this long day in the sun!

This look was inspired by the Bohemian styles represented in the Valentino spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection. The colors, patterns and silhouettes in this runway show inspired me to find a look that was reflective of these trends.
