Oversize sweaters/jackets

Big things are popping and all season long. Layer on an oversize sweater on an oversize button down shirt or a bomber jacket on a crop top combo. While one gives off a masculine touch, the other reveals a sassier version of the individual sporting it. Whichever way works perfectly.

Sassy and bringing it

What’s the point of having it if it’s going to be muffled up underneath a pile of clothes? Then this is your category. Less they say is more and a barely-there sporty look is the sassy energy that keeps giving. Think biker shorts, crop tops and alluring pieces that accentuate the figure.

A pop of color and maybe more

Colors make the world go round whether on a moody day or even on days you feel vibrant and ready to take on the world. Choose a monochrome look on the brighter spectrum or dip your feet cautiously with bright colored accessories like hats and/or shoes to make a style statement.
