STYLE GURU STYLE: Summer Staples

July 26th, 2016 at 2:00am

When you think of summer style there is always a go-to formula involved. This usually includes a T-shirt, shorts or printed dress. My go-to summer outfit is mixing casual with dressy. The look of layering athletic pieces over more sophisticated ones creates an easy Kate Moss approved outfit.

Inspired by the easy-going nature of the Yeezy fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection, I combined a basic, block lettered sweatshirt with a striped pencil skirt for a simple but cute look. Most of the Yeezy collection included athletic-inspired pieces, making my re-creation very wearable for everyday.

The best style advice I always tell people is to wear what makes you feel confident. Rocking a graphic sweatshirt and a bodycon skirt always makes me feel great.

My favorite part of this outfit is how comfortable it is. Using a cropped sweatshirt as a base immediately dresses up the look, giving it a more laid-back-vibe. The striped pencil skirt brings a bit of femininity to the outfit and helps to balance out the sporty sweatshirt. To complete the look I topped it off with a pair of simple gold aviators and embellished sandals to keep it casual.

Sweats, stripes and gold accessories will always be trendy because of how simple they are. The most important thing to remember is learning how to effectively layer these pieces. If I’ve learned anything from reading magazines and following runway shows it’s that fashion is all about making the simplistic things look influential. Less is definitely more and excess will never be in.
