I am usually not a white denim person. It is such a bold material, and if it’s not used correctly it can ruin an entire look. Here are a few ways to wear those white skinny jeans or old white denim jacket that has been collecting dust in your closet.
Umber & Ochre: The full circle
100% cotton and the beach seem like a blissful combination. The light and soft plant is happiness, breezy, easy, and serene. Umber & Ochre has managed to morph a brand image from their material’s connotation all while being environmentally conscious.
Wearing the Blues
I love seeing all of the color popping up on my Pinterest street style feed. People are finding new, eclectic ways of combining color and pattern. Even shoes are taking on bright hues and odd shapes. Here is a way to make the love of bright colors suitable for the office.
Another combination of contemporary and vintage that’s perfect for the beach. This stretch-runch top and vintage shorts are the perfect pieces to layer with a swimsuit.
Patterns big and small
Contrasting patterns are like eye-candy when it comes to outfits. It adds and eclectic and curious element to a look, and it leaves people staring (in a good way). There are some rules to follow when putting the ensemble together.
Capturing the extreme sun of August in a comfortable way is done by wearing earth tones. Black certainly does the trick, but that can be too intense. Tan and brown tones are just dark enough the keep you at a comfortable temperature and create an upscale day to night look.
Shoulder Pad Wonders
Working in the fashion industry calls for you to have a staple. Grace Coddington has her gorgeous red hair, Anna Wintour’s black sunglasses will never be forgotten, and Danielle Bernstein’s minimalist yet intricate vibe is copied world wide. When I realized mine is a shoulder-padded blazer paired with sunnies, I couldn’t have been happier.
Bridges and Beaches Supply Co.
I spent the day at the beach with Derrick Russell to work on a special project. Connecting over Instagram, we learned that we were signed with the same modeling agency. The conversation carried on to our personal businesses; mine being the blog and his being his California apparel brand. When I learned the story behind Bridges and Beaches Supply Co. (BBSC), I would be doing an injustice to my fellow NorCal dwellers if I did not feature it on the blog.
A Current Affair: Fashion History in the Bay
Burning incense sticks woke up your senses as soon as you climbed the metal industrial steps of the warehouse. Stringed fabric laced with flowers swung in the breeze from the gaping window. “A Current Affair” was scratched in chalk on a black board welcoming in each customer.
Boy Tees with Rainbows
I’ve been drawn to vintage/worn-in tie-dye tees lately. The best ones in Goodwill or in vintage shops are always the kid sizes. They have profound graphics and color. When I found this one, I was shopping for a styling job. I couldn’t say no.
