I’ve mentally bookmarked this photo as a superb example of the loose, effortless look I want as my touchstone for summer style.
For style all around, really.
The simple lines, solid colors (more or less solid, perhaps I would like it still more if the pants were a true solid), minimal palette, clean demarcation of separates, contrast of bared skin on top and legs entirely obscured, slick, low ponytail…
This is Swedish blogger Kenza, with whom I wasn’t familiar before coming across this photo. On the radar now, though.
So difficult to find a tank top like this, that falls just so. I seem to try so many on (on the hunt for what we see here) only to be astonished at how unflattering the cut is.*
*When clothes do not look good on you, you should definitely blame the clothes. Or try a different size, potentially, but most clothes are cut horribly. It could be that it would suit a different body, there is some slight chance of that, but usually, in my experience, they are poorly made, and would not truly look good (I mean really good, I mean really FIT. I do not mean fine/OK/alright) on anyone. I hear too many people blaming their bodies. While a body can always be healthier in some way or another, it is the job of the clothing to look good on the body, not the job of the body to look good in the clothing.
