For my weekend going out look, I chose this 7 For All Mankind braided skirt in vivid medium indigo because I love how the braid trim on the pockets and waistband add a nice touch of detail and interest. I chose this off the shoulder cropped white blouse from Tibi because it is a great updated version of a crisp white button down. Then I added these Alexandre Birman snake print platforms as I love the 70s style vibe they give the outfit. Lastly, I finished with these Oliver Peoples sunglasses and added a touch of color with this wine colored bucket bag from Sophie Hulme.
Shorts season is here and one brand that makes some awesome washes that scream the new season, is AG Jeans. I chose their Bonnie shorts in three different washes to style in looks that breathe the easy vibe that the shorts give off. Whether you choose to raid the flea markets in the coming months or just head to the many parties, these are looks that are perfect for any of those occasions.
An all black look is something that most people tend to avoid this time of the year as wearing all black can lead to being overheated. But when wearing lightweight pieces, it is something that can work. I went for The Bonnie in 8 Years Midnight Drift to pair with a linen button front shirt from Equipment. The faded and whiskered details add a bit more to the classic pairing. I then wanted to keep that ease to the outfit by adding a pair of slides from Loeffler Randall and bag from Sensi Studios to carry all the new buys for when you hit the boardwalk in this look.
A post about denim shorts is not complete without the classic lightwashed blues. For this one, I went with The Bonnie in 14 Years Sundrenched to pair with a striped Equipment shirt. I wanted to go for something that had an Alexa Chung sense with this look here. She is definitely a fan of the pairing of the combination as she has been seen in it numerous times. I didn’t want to go with Alexa’s typical accessories choice though. For the shoes, I went for some high-top Chucks, and for the bag, a simple tote by Monserat De Lucca.
Now for something slightly dressier, in an Isabel Marant sense. I paired The Bonnie in White Restored with a slouchy sweater by Tibi. Then to keep that Marant vibe going, a chose a pair of the Minnetonka boots and as her looks are not done without some key accessories, I went for a belt by Bottega Veneta and classic Ray-ban aviators to finish it all off.
-How many of you are excited to be pulling out your shorts?
For my going out look this week, I wanted to do something inspired by Olivia Palermo and some preppy, yet fashionable looks that I have seen lately. I chose the Black Orchid Noah Jeans in Groovy Baby as I adore these jeans so much with the fun patchwork detailing and then paired them with this Topshop metallic cami to add some fun and layered a Topshop white blazer over the top to smarten it up. To give it some edge, I went with these Oscar de la Renta brogues as I think they are so smart and chic, then finished it off with a Balenciaga Papier tote and some subtle statement making blue pearl earrings. I definitely love this look and would wear it myself if I had the pieces!
Though it is 4th of July weekend, I didn’t want to do a look for say a pool party, but one for a nighttime bbq. The High Rise in Black Rebel is one of my favorite styles that Rag & Bone has come out with recently. They have just the right amount of distressing for a casual look for men and they will look better as you wear them out more and more, which is why I chose them to style this week.
For the overall look, this is something that I would wear and have worn. I paired the jeans with a longline t shirt from TOPMAN because there is this edge that it adds to looks that I find very unique at the moment. To layer over and add more casualness, a sweater by AMI. I chose green just to add subtle contrast to the overall monochrome look. Then to finish the outfit off, a hat by Stussy and a pair of the new Yeezy 350 Boosts. The updated moccasin vibe mixed with the concept of a running shoe gives this this look a vibe that they can only do.
