Welcome back to a new year, another era in fashion to swoon over and bold trends to embrace as well as one-hit wonders! In the last year we came to expect the unexpected, let’s hope 2021 brings some joy as well as epic fashion moments & uplifting designer collections.
In this first blog post for 2020, I’m kicking the year off in an effortless yet edgy street inspired look to inject some style into your Summer wardrobe! If you’re like me and seem to hit a road block in the inspiration category in Summer, then you’re not alone!
Usually we grab our dresses, playsuits and denim shorts to live in, just simply to conquer the hot days! Try something different this year and opt to include a denim jacket in your look.
Maybe a bit hot for the moment but when the cool summer nights come or you find yourself somewhere in freezing air con then the denim jacket great companion to keep you company.
To recreate this look start by selecting a pair of shorts that compliment to the minimal cool shades in the outfit. Turn to existing wardrobe pieces when choosing shorts or if you are keen to purchase a new pair then my tip would be opt for white!
White can be extremely versatile and opting for a fabric that is chic can take your outfits a long way! The style of short that I am wearing is paper bag, which allows for flow and features a high waist. (available from dotti).
Next team a basic tee or singlet top underneath that works with your look, so when it is too hot for the jacket you can wear it on its own. I am wearing an off the shoulder style top from Kookai that is fitted and easily works with the white shirt.
Team a statement denim jacket with your look to complete the outfit. The jacket that I am wearing is from Decjuba and features studded detail on the shoulders. The jacket is constructed in a comfy but cool way and fits slightly over-sized.
Complete your look with statement accessories, introduce a pair of statement fashion sneakers with your outfit for an extra touch of casual glam. Next team a cross body bag underneath the jacket and opt for a thick strap for extra edge.
The next time your looking for an alternative to the usual summer wardrobe then try recreating this easy effortless look! Happy New Year x
