Rips On Rips + Tips

Rips On Rips + Tips

It looks like I’m pretty giddy about something here, huh? I was actually just excited to be shooting in comfy casual clothes for a change! If you typically gravitate towards glamorous, dressed up styles {like me}, then you may be left feeling a little awkward and maybe even out of place when you attempt to switch your look up and dress down. But jeans, sneaks, and a sweatshirt may be most practical for a day of running errands in the city or even posting up in a coffee shop to study/work.

I want to share a few tried & true tips that always help me ‘own’ my sporty-casj {my short for casual} looks even though it’s not my typical style. So here goes…

  1. Accessorize with an awesome pair of glasses or sunnies. With a casual street style outfit you don’t need a lot of accessories, but (sun)glasses will always step up your look a few notches!
  2. Still do your makeup! It doesn’t have to be full-out glam, but a subtle natural beat will do the trick. Think about Rihanna when she goes ‘tomboy’ with her style…she ALWAYS has a natural glam face at a minimum! Even though we may feel like dressing kidlike at times, we still want to be taken seriously, right?!
  3. Carry your confidence. You may not be carrying a chic purse on dress down days, but you better not leave your confidence at home! No matter what you’re wearing, people will read you based on how you carry yourself. So chin up, chest up, and own the room babe!! *inserts fist pump*

I think it says a lot about a woman that can rock any style from chic & classic, to flamboyant & sexy, and then a little rocker/tomboy/punk! If you identify even a little bit with all of these fashion genres by all means explore them! Don’t ever feel like you have to pick one style aesthetic and stick to it…fashion is a mode of expression and most of us don’t feel the same way every day!img_20170227_200703atlantaphotographer-43-zf-0721-87858-1-043img_20170228_154151atlantaphotographer-48-zf-0721-87858-1-048atlantaphotographer-41-zf-0721-87858-1-041img_20170228_155026img_20170227_200116          Denim: F21 // Converse Sneakers: Plato’s Closet (thrifted) // Glasses: AliExpress

This distressed sweatshirt by Fly Fit Rich is my new fav, and I paired it with ripped jeans because one can never have enough rips! 😉 Fly Fit Rich is a super chic, on-trend local boutique, so if you’re in the Atlanta area definitely check them out!

Fashionably Yours,

Aliya
