I use the term “uniform” pretty often. What I mean by “uniform” is this is what I’m currently always wearing. You know how there are “Everyday makeup tutorials”? If there was such thing as an “Everyday outfit tutorial” this would be my featured look. I literally wear a variation of this outfit any chance I get.
For me, I keep what I wear in the Summer pretty simple– it’s too damn hot to wear anything but. In general I love shopping for basics that I can wear over and over again without getting sick of. Right now, my go to basic is denim cutoffs. I was on the hunt for the perfect shorts that show just enough leg, and not too much booty. I finally discovered a few brands that I can truly count on.
I’ve found the most success in finding the perfect shorts at the perfect price, surprisingly, at local boutiques. This pair of white cutoffs is from Homecoming Honolulu. A couple other of my favorite boutiques to shop for shorts, are Cookies Clothing Co, and Mahina. Their shorts are reasonably priced between $30-$50.
My love for basics goes hand in hand with my love for statement pieces. I style basic pieces that I can wear over and over again with whatever is trending. Stripes are the in pattern right now and I can’t get enough of it. What I love about them is that they can be worn up or down. I can easily dress this outfit up by changing my shoes from booties to heels, and throwing on white jeans instead of shorts. Although stripes are a pattern, I consider it a must have in my closet now.
Everyone’s greatest fear is to be caught wearing the same outfit again (guilty). However, I don’t believe you have to get rid of an item just because you’ve worn it already. I try to stay away from outfit repeats, but I’m all about piece repeats. Once I find a look I love, I make a few tweaks here and there and it’s a whole different outfit. My Summer uniform is stripes and cutoffs. Leave a comment below & tell me about your “uniform”. xx
