Nothing says summer quite like some fresh and messy cut-offs. What better to beat the heat, stay stylish and be comfortable?
One of the most on-trend items for summer 2017 is embroidered prints, especially vintage style flowers. Which is why I am loving these cut-off shorts from Tobi. They are extremely light-weight, soft, versatile and super trendy. I'm a fan of high waistlines, so I always love a good high-waisted cut-off short. For me, high waisted bottoms always make tucking in shirts look so effortless and trendy - plus, they are super comfortable.
Style your cut-offs with a flowy top to give a nice contrast to your short shorts. Sometimes, styling a tight or cropped top with cut-offs or short shorts can be uncomfortable for some, especially me, which is why I like to contrast the tight shorts with something a little roomy on top. Not to mention the comfortable factor - you know what I mean, we all have those days. Plus, the flowy top helps make the outfit look a little more effortless while still looking cute.
Shoes are just as important as anything else you're wearing and can make or break your look. On this specific day, I wanted a more effortless, casual and comfortable look. The sort of thing you'd wear to go sight-seeing or exploring a new city. Flat or platform espadrilles are perfect for summer and are my go-to shoes. Neutral espadrilles can match pretty much any outfit or occasion if worn correctly. Here, I'm wearing flat two-toned neutral espadrilles for a classy, comfortable look. They don't compete with my outfit, but compliment it.
Lastly, your bag is also an important factor when it comes to your outfit. I'm normally not a fan of having to strictly match your bag to your shoes, so it's ok if you aren't either. When it comes to the bag, make sure it at least compliments or matches what you're wearing. For example, the blue bag matches the blue cut-off shorts and the top, but doesn't compete with the shoes.
