STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Lending An Olive Branch

This year in many resort wear collections, cool olive green clothing was ever-present. The army inspired trend is one that is easy to rock. It makes any fashionista appear very laidback and instantly put together. One line that included this interesting and surprisingly versatile color in many of their items was Alexander McQueen. The shade flatters virtually every skin tone, which makes it a must have in every girl’s closet. The chic look of slim cargo pants is one that can easily replace a pair an over worn pair of skinny jeans. A pair of fitted cargos can be found at any price. I found this super cute pair from Target!

A pair of cargos can be worn with simple sandals and a white tank for an easy afternoon. The look can be easily transformed into a cute evening style with a fun turquoise statement necklace and a pair of wedges. There are also many other ways to have fun with army inspired looks this summer. One idea is a pair of boyfriend style shorts that are not only fashion-forward but also very comfortable. Also a cute military inspired vest can be easily paired with a simple dress either black or printed and a fedora for a summer music festival. The style can be easily mixed into a simple wardrobe and can make an outfit standout.

I spotted this fashionista sporting some slim olive green trouser pants, a classic V-neck tee, and sandals. The style is very light and airy, which is perfect for the summer weather and looks very relaxed. Her look is topped off with a shoulder bag, classic Ray Ban aviators and a simple Dogeared necklace. While her look is one that is built on basics what makes her style standout is that it is appears very effortless. To me, an effortless look is one that I always hope to emulate in my own styles. There is nothing more impressive than those girls who are able to throw together super chic looks in a few minutes.  Yet there is no reason we all cannot be that type of girl with a few updates to our closets!
