This ensemble was inspired by a casual look I saw on Pinterest that combines olive bottoms with a white top, denim jacket and a pair of striking espadrilles. Of course, you can use any style of casual Summer shoe to complete the look, but the espadrilles make the combination trendy and a little more special.
Here are the components of the ensemble:
Olive Bottoms: Choose a pair of casual olive cargo pocket pants, boyfriend chinos, shorts or a skirt. Cropped pants are a great match for lace-up and high-vamped espadrilles. Harem pants are particularly breezy, and so is a high-low skirt.
White Top: Choose a white top that works with the style of the bottoms. It could be a fluid or slouchy T-shirt, a crop top, a silk blouse, or a casual button-down shirt. A black and white geometric pattern like a stripe is a nice alternative to the white top if that’s more your cup of tea. Wear the top tucked, partially tucked or untucked depending on what works best with the bottoms.
Denim Topper: Choose a denim jacket that’s either fitted or fashionably oversized in any wash. A denim vest is a breezier option. The topper is optional, so leave it off if it’s too hot for layers.
Espadrilles: Choose a pair of neutral flat or heeled espadrilles, with or without lace-up ties. A patterned pair creates a fun pattern mixed effect with the striped T-shirt.
Accessories: Finish off the outfit with a casual tote or crossbody bag in dove grey, white, metallic, tan or black. Add jewellery, watch, eyewear and headgear as desired.
