TRIBAL.

I almost did not buy these shorts from a local store in Miami by the name of Blush Boutique until my mother convinced me not to walk out without them because they would be so versatile. Thank god for Mom’s because she was right. I love mixing trendy pieces with classic items. By doing this, it leaves room for more ways to wear one piece and keeps the outfit fun and fresh without ODing on trends. 
These tribal printed shorts are great for the transition from spring to summer and perfect for the upcoming festival season. I can totally see myself rocking these with a loose crop top and fringe boots at Coachella. For a casual day running around town though, I chose a light blue linen top to play off the neon detail of the shorts, pointy-toed flats and my ever present Alexander Wang ‘Rocco’ bag. Mirrored sunnies, neon tassel bracelets, and rad vintage lion earrings complete the look I was going for.

Classic.

I simply can not get enough of a classic white shirt. Whether it be a plain white tee or a button-up, the white shirt is a must in any closet. When I saw this white shirt at Zara I knew it was a must have because of the not so typical detailing. Slightly cropped and a paneled ‘V’ in the front, the classic white button-up was taken to a whole new and rad level. I am currently scouting for more button-up’s with different detailing to add to my closet. One can never have too many classic tops, a lesson I learned from my very fabulous and elegant mother. Every time we go shopping she always veers towards the same classic pieces because they just go with EVERYTHING. Paired with a light grey and hint of light pink leather skirt, the outfit stays modern and fresh.

Now Trending: NEOPRENE

Neoprene. Essentially the ‘IT’ fabric right now and many designers are flocking to use this magical piece of cloth. Neoprene isn’t exactly a fabric that you would consider for everyday wear. In fact, most just relate it with scuba diving and other water sports. But what is fashion without a little risk? Neoprene is actually perfect for all the seasons. It keeps you warm and insulated in the fall and winter and sucks you in in all the right places in Spring and Summer. The surprise star of the fashion season with top designers taking it out of the water and putting it on the runways. With it’s strong and defined lines, neoprene creates architectural shapes with a futuristic finish. To make it even better, designers are furthering it’s distance from water sports by fashioning and fusing it with finishes like wool, felt, and velvet; Like what I am wearing here: full neoprene skirt paired with a denim button-up and tan suede flats. Because neoprene is thick and form-fitting in nature, it is incredibly flattering when found in such styles as dresses and skirts and is ideal for capturing the luxe sporty chic vibe that is popular at the moment. Seen on the runways from Calvin Klein, Proenza Schouler, Nicole Miller, Clover Canyon and Noon by Noor, neoprene is having it’s moment and taking the fashion scene by storm. It’s not just for the ladies either; So far we’ve seen it down the runways of Robert Geller, Gucci, Calvin Klein Collection, and Neil Barrett… all for the men. My one tip is to make sure you get it dry cleaned if you sweat in it. TRUST.
