In the summer it's all about the details. Less clothing is worn, so the fashion-conscious should keep up to trend on the small things like sunglasses, dainty jewelry and an "it" bag.
A style tip that women have used for years that's good for any season has been to incorporate a belt with a high-waisted bottom. Giving you a dramatic small waist affect seen by both Iryna Karabinovych.
She's sporting high waisted cutoff shorts and this summer's popular trend -- a crop top. She was handing out gift certificates around the city, stopping in at Starbucks for a quick coffee break. About to head out again, Karabinovych posed quickly and sweetly down Lanark Street holding her melting frappuccino in hand.
What she wore...
Crop top and belt -- American Apparel
Shorts -- "Shorts are from Value Village, the one on Regent. They were pants, I just got them up. I've done it with a couple pairs."
Purse -- "Michael Kors, I got it at Danali."
Necklace and shoes -- Aldo
Rings -- "Rings are from BCBG."
Sunglasses -- "Ray-Bans are from the Sunglass Hut."
"Definitely cropped tops and shorts, I always go to American Apparel for them and I always have a watch on. It spices up an outfit and ads a little bling. I usually wear a lot of black and white, and for sure white in the summer it makes you look tanned. High-waisted cutoff shorts are definitely my favourite thing to wear in the summer right now. I think high-waisted anything is very flattering. Any body shape can wear them, as long as they're covering the right parts it will work."
"I do a lot of shopping, I shop on nastygal.com boutique at least two to three times a month and I really try and see what's in, and go from there. I follow them on Instagram and on the website. I love their clothing. Saboskirt.com is another good one. It's owned by two girls who make their own clothing."
