Styling with N: The Ultimate Summer vacation guide part 2: City Break Daytime

As much as i adore the beach, i call myself a city girl. Recently street style fashion has been gaining loads of importance, conveying the fashionable vibe on the streets of big citites such as Paris, London, Milan,...etc We all love daytime strolls in the city, sipping lattes and eating pastries, shopping and discovering gems. Here is a styling session dedicated to daytime city style.

Sunglasses: Alexander Wang Zipper detail sunglasses
Silk Cardigan: Winter Kate available at Blush Boutique
White Tank: Kain Label available at SHopbop
Denim Shorts: Siwy available at Blush Boutique
Necklaces: Dannijo
Bag: PS1 available at LuisaViaRoma
Shoes: Christian Louboutin available at Barneys
Ring: Pamela Love available at Shopbop
Eyeliner: Bobby Brown cream gel

  • There is a sort of freedom in this look that resembles the city style vibe and trend going around now, This look is my style aesthetic in daily life, boho meets rocker chic. It's summer layering done in easy fabrics of silks and jerseys.

  • To start with, the main point is the demin shorts and a white tank, which is like a canvas that you can create so many looks with.

  • I threw on a long silk cardigan , which seems to be my uniform for this season! I adore Winter Kate and Kite & Butterfly, they have so many versatile and gorgeous pieces, and you should stock up on them this season and wear them forever, you can find the variety at Blush Boutique

  • To me any look is not complete without jewelry, I like piling mine and i love statement pieces. The necklaces shown above can be worn with anything and they give this tough chic look to any outfit. I also love statement bold rings. I actually collect them! This one shown above by Pamela Love is a gorgeous one and definately a hot buy.

  • For heels, I paired these purple Louboutins, which give a pop of unexpected yet contrasting colour with the look. They make the outfit more fashion forward and spot on!

  • Now for the handbag situation, I wanted something with a downtown cool vibe mixed with a vintage like appeal and of course the perfect fit was the PS1 which has taken the fahsion scene by storm! It pulls the outfit together in such a cool way.

  • Sunglasses go without saying when we say Daytime style, it adds allure and mystery. I think they can make a first impression of the outfit, giving it the final vibe you want to go for. This Alexander Wang zipper detailed one is what i was going for ; an edgy look on a classic shape. The zipper details give it a rock chic air.

  • Last but not least , my beauty note here would be smoky eyes or defined eyes with nude lips and a bit of bronzer. One of the best eyeliners around , this Bobby Brown cream gel is long lasting, and you apply it with a brush so its less messy for people who don't have steady hands. You can create gorgeous smoky strokes with it.
