This outfit is fun and playful not only with the pattern play, but also with the loose and free feel.  Summer is all about being comfortable, but being stylish obviously is important.  I wanted to create an outfit that was flirty yet comfy and this outfit just fell into place.  Of course, to prove a point, we tested it lounging on the studio chair.  Results showed that yes, this outfit is perfect.

Wearing nothing more than a men’s shirt and draped in gold jewelry, this could possible be the most glamorous combination ever.  The careful carelessness is a seductive juxtaposition in itself, taking a shapeless shirt and making it womanly.  The fun tribal prints of the necklaces give it a relaxed look while the sunglasses add solemn glamour.  The look begs to be worn whilst lounging in the utmost prima donna way.  It requires no shoes.  Hair must be undone.  Soft wrinkles worn into the shirt preferred.  Absolute perfection.

What is a rebel these days in the fashion world?  There are too many risks being taken in fashion to tell who is bolder than the next. 

Sometimes all you have to do is break out the old Chucks and replace the ankle boots.  Chucks are the original cool kid shoe.  They are those shoes that will be timeless.  So an outfit built around Chucks?  Definition of cool.

This outfit is rebellious in the sense that it isn’t the polished outfit you will normally see.  It’s relaxed with the big sweater, but the short shorts and tall socks add length and leanness to balance it out.  The sunnies top it off to give it a don’t-bother-me edge.

Now to decide what rebellious things to do in this outfit.

There’s a point between summer and spring in which you are just tired.  Tired of the chilly wind.  Tired of the rain.  Tired of the lack of sunshine.  Tired of not being able to wear your favorite shorts.  Just tired.

In New York, it is May and we are still wearing sweaters.  A picture taken on this very day last year shows a crowd of people standing just down the street in tanks and shorts.  Not one face without sunglasses. 

I can’t take it anymore.  I want to run away to somewhere warm. 

And it was precisely this statement that made me consider this particular outfit.  With the loudness of a teen and the free-spiritedness of tribal print, this outfit embodies the suppressed desire to find warm weather.  Whether it is a music festival (sorry, a little late on that one) or just a stroll out in the sunshine, this outfit is the perfect transitional look for spring to summer.  Even though the look incorporates a skirt, the boyish fit of the top makes it rebellious.  It is as if you could take the look and walk straight to the beach with it or add a snapback and penny board and take it to the streets.

There is nothing worse than a closet coma, the moment in which you are frozen in front of your closet and all you can say is “I have nothing to wear.” 

I think we have all been there.  It is easy to mix versatile pieces like shirts and pants, but it is quite different when it comes to dresses.  Some dresses seem like a statement piece, they must be worn on their own or with minimal clothing and accessories.  However, with the right things to mix, that dress can be worn in so many ways. 

It is the same dress, but with two different looks.  The tailored blazer adds a prim-and-proper feel to the clean lines of the dress and the cutout oxfords add a fun touch to complete the girly look.  For night, perhaps, replace the blazer with a cropped leather jacket and the oxfords with a pair of cutout ankle booties for a cool look.  Never again shall you encounter a closet coma.

No girl wants to be the one trying too hard, but it is hard to do that when you are dressing to impress.  This outfit encapsulates the word effortless, but the few pieces that it consists of keep it chic.  You couldn’t call it minimalist because of the gorgeous floral shoe, but the simplicity of the outfit provides for a little leeway in the footwear.  The cropped sweater adds a bit of femininity to an otherwise boyish piece, giving an edge to the outfit.  The leather pencil skirt adds an unexpected balance of high fashion and lady-like silhouette.
