26-year old Alexa from Fabes Fashion hails from Germany and currently lives in Los Angeles. Her style is casual and relaxed. She combines girly with boho, and enjoys a tomboy and rocker look too. She loves to wear ripped white jeans with fun tops, and sports hats regularly. Her long locks, big smile and beautiful green eyes are her trademarks.
This Summer-y look is the perfect embodiment of Alexa’s casual, relaxed style. Our blogger loves to wear ripped white jeans that give her outfits a RATE (rough around the edges) vibe. This is partly tempered by the fact that they are white, which adds back a level of polish. An on trend off-the-shoulder peasant top with pastel geometric print creates a pretty ‘70s boho effect. The billowy bell sleeves and drapey volume provide flattering proportions with the skinny jeans. A dressy tan tote and fab flat sandals with eye-catching pearl embellishments are the polished finishing touches.
A fun take on a column of colour. Our blogger has paired her favourite distressed jeans with a V-neck cover-up worn as a blouse. The lace trim detailing and Alexa’s long sleek hair are the feminine touches. The oversized denim jacket with embroidered patches and low-top Converse create a playful tomboy vibe. The olive sneakers, blue denim, colourful souvenir patches and Alexa’s bright lipstick make a vibrant impact. Sporting white on the top and bottom creates a long lean line and is useful for making the harder-to-style oversized jacket instantly wearable. Rolling the sleeves adds structure to the outfit.
Alexa’s stunning floral print dress undoubtedly steals the show. The simple above-the-knee A-line style accentuates her shapely legs. I especially love how the bold floral pattern is only partly coloured-in, giving it the air of an unfinished aquarel painting. Beautiful! Light taupe stacked heel cage sandals and Alexa’s body art peeking through add soft edge. The nude-for-her colour further elongates the leg line. Alexa’s neon pink lipstick emphasizes her gorgeous green eyes even more. A colour blocked envelope clutch in soft neutrals complements the look. Our blogger’s pinned back wavy hair is the romantic finishing touch.
A jumpsuit in a striking colour doesn’t need extra bells and whistles. The rusty red is flattering against Alexa’s skintone. The combination with the cool-toned pink lipstick is a little unexpected. Opting for a fluid fit helps to not overwhelm the wearer. The V-neckline, rolled hems and sleeves, and the belt with metal buckle also provide structure. Pairing the jumpsuit with heavier footwear like these black cut-out block-heeled booties creates a playful utilitarian vibe. The black felt fedora bookends the shoes, and Alexa’s long locks add girly charm.
I call this one Pretty Boho Rocker. The ripped skinny jeans, black booties, long cardigan, fedora, and chain strap bag make up the Boho Rocker part of the outfit. The white and pink striped boat neck tee, in combination with white jeans and pastel pink lippy, soften the look. Pairing the tee and jeans with a maxi cardigan creates drama, but the fine gauge knit and structured fit on the shoulders and arms prevent it from becoming overwhelming. The light with dark grey ombré effect subtly echoes the striped tee. Together with the suede booties, felt hat and quilted bag it provides subtle textural interest. The high-contrast black footwear creates an extra horizontal line which is offset by high heels and the vertical integrity of the long cardigan.
A simple tee and jeans look is elevated by incorporating colour, pattern and texture. Alexa is wearing her trademark distressed skinnies with an Aztec print crew neck T-shirt. The mix of colours and patterns creates outfit depth. The tasseled hemline, the knot detailing on her tote bag, and braided sandals add lots of texture. A banded fedora adds flair and is a great way to shield yourself from the Californian sun. Bright red lipstick and rosy cheeks finish off this casual Summertime look.
