This week’s Goldsmiths Fashionista grabbed my attention because of her casual look. Some denim shorts, a loose tee and a pair of flats.
The diversity of the denim short is astounding and has never been quite so clear as this summer. London is awash with salvaged Levi’s worn a million different ways. Ripped, bleached, studded or simply rolled up (as seen with this Fashionista), the denim short is impossibly versatile.
The simple striped tee is a fashion staple that is seeing a surge in popularity lately. A nautical navy and white combo is classic, elegant and super chic. Wearing a size up will take the worry out of the minefield that is the great horizontal stripe debate. A looser tee will allow for a flowing fit with the natural lines of a subtle drape. This Fashionista’s tee has a cute little gold zip at the back that gives an elegant touch to the top.
A gold heart charm bracelet is a simple addition to the whole look. The brown manicure is perfectly matched with the brown belt for some subtle continuity. It is simple details like this that make the look flow. Beige flats are in harmony with the rest of the look. This Fashionista is a perfect example of a ‘less is more’ fashion mentality!
I noticed a beautiful ladybird tattoo on Fashionista’s neck. While this is more of a permanent feature than a fashion accessory, I thought it was in sync with the look and so deserved a photo! The detailed elegance of this hidden tattoo is perfectly balanced with the simplicity of this look.
If you want to emulate the look try this ASOS tee.
