STYLING: HOODIES

I must admit that I have lately been embracing a more Normcore style. Choosing casual and plain looking jeans, hoodies and tops over flamboyant pieces. Now some shriek when they hear the word “Normcore” fearing that it would become an unfortunate fad, which it did. However, when you are a young individual on a budget and constantly on the go there is really no time to deliberate on ritzy getups. HOODIES

Styling: A Plaid Shirt

Styling a plaid shirt can sometimes be tricky if you don’t want to look like you just put on the first things you saw in your closet. In this set I was able to style a gorgeous Thom Browne plaid top with a Marc Jacobs A-Line skirt and Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots to give the outfit a preppy look. I also added a chic Balenciaga bag and some Tom Ford sunglasses to finalize the look. Using black, grey and white gave the outfit a cleaner, sleeker look. And if you don’t like black remember the color has a slimming effect so why not take a chance.Plaid Shirt - Greys

Styling Gladiator Sandals

It looks like this summer you’ll be seeing many fashion conscious individuals wearing the “Gladiator Sandal.” This ancient sandal, which dates back to 246 B.C., is popular among music festival goers, but was once the go to shoe of gods and goddesses according to Greek mythology. Today we’ll be styling the Thebes Knee-High Gladiator Sandals by Ancient Greek Sandals.

This summer you’ll definitely want to wear something that will help you cope with this unbearable heat so a slip dresses will become your best friends. If the Calypso St.Barths dress down below is not in your price range check out Free People or Urban Outfitters; both offer great quality dresses at lower prices.

To accessorize you should match the color of your sandals to your accessories. In this case the the sunglasses, watch and tote are all black, while the silver necklace nicely complements the black and white found in this outfit.Weekend Style
