Combining some of this summer’s biggest trends in this week’s #OOTD.
I love classic style, but at the end of the day, I am a sucker for trends. I think it’s so much fun to try out new styles each season, and in this week’s #OOTD, I couldn’t help but combine some of this summer’s most popular trends. Gingham print (hence the “check yourself” pun… get it?), statement sleeves, denim skirts and espadrilles are must-haves for SS2017, and they pair well all together.
This denim skirt is actually a super versatile piece; you can dress it up a bit with a blouse and cute sandals or espadrilles as I have, or you can wear it more casually with sneakers and a t-shirt. I see it transitioning nicely into the fall with booties and a sweater, too.
Puffy sleeves were a bit of a risk for me, but I feel that they elevated my jean skirt and gave my outfit a more fashion-forward look. Statement sleeves are definitely a trend to try out this season, whether puffy, off-the-shoulder, or flared!
To give my outfit a pop of color, I carried a bright red crossbody bag I scored at the Zara sale last month. It has a gold ring detail which gives it a similar look to the popular Chloé ring bags that I wish I could afford! This bag was a surprising purchase for me, since I usually only invest in handbags which are by name brands and made of real leather (sounds obnoxious, I know, but it’s a quirk of mine). However, the structured shape and bold color of this bag caught my eye and I knew it would make for a fun accessory.
It’s important to me to keep all metals in my look cohesive, so to match the bag’s gold ring and the gold studs on my espadrilles, I completed my ensemble with my Luv AJ x SaboSkirt gold layered necklace and round Ray-Ban sunglasses with gold frames.
