The summer is everyone's time to take a break from the demands of the school year, catch up on reading, pick up a few hobbies and just relax. It also means open summer nights to go out with the girls or the guys and spend some time together you wouldn't otherwise have during the other busier seasons. These nights are great outlets to express yourselves like a true Fashionista or Fashionisto. And what better way to truly express yourself than by sporting a do-it-yourself look?
I get it. The term “do-it-yourself” triggers flashes of images of awful fashion disasters in my head too. But, it’s really not that hard! This Fashionista told me her outfit was less than $15 all together, shoes and everything. Instead of wearing jeans, she keeps cool with denim colored leggings. She is wearing a simple camisole and accessorizes with a belt and scarf. Her “cardigan” is actually an old shirt she decided to cut in half. This Fashionista’s look is the ultimate do-it-yourself look. It is perfect for a variety of occasions including a night out with the girls or a relaxing evening in. The best part about this look is that it is inexpensive and it’s easy to change out a few accessories for a completely different look.
Hint: Want a simple, do it yourself look? It’s all about the accessories. Ragstock is a great, inexpensive location for some great jewelry, scarves or shades. Pair accessories with simple clothes from stores like Target and you’re ready to go!
