Summer is the perfect season to experiment with your looks and expressing your individuality through the clothes you’re wearing. Born and raised in Rio but grew up in England, Lise Grendene is a fashion blogger known for her experimental and creative looks on her street style. Though she’s very gypsy at heart, she has a knack on mixing modern, retro, casual, and sexy style to her street looks. If you’re looking for style inspiration to get more creative on your summer looks, keep on reading to scoop some tricks from her.
- Print-on-Print Style
Print mixing is a trendy look you may incorporate to your summer style. But, to make things a bit extraordinary or simply stand out from the crowd, opt for eccentric prints that will give some hint of your personality. Stripes, polka dots, and checks are common prints usually worn with other patterns since they are considered neutral and versatile enough to create polished looks. So, be more creative by going for abstract prints, optical illusion patterns, patchwork prints, or even baroque-inspired patterns that can be more expressive and statement making over basic ones. Like Lise, try mixing your optical illusion inspired pieces with a pair of edgy boots to complete your outfit. Or, think of going for a patchwork print style of pants, instead of a denim one, that will go perfectly with your printed top like Lise did.
- Modern Classic Look
If you’re a fan of neutral colored pieces, add some modern twist to your classic style. Like Lise, think of wearing your classic chiffon blouse untucked on your skirt or shorts paired with color-blocked boots. Or, simply opt for pieces with a classic style and wear them modernly just like going for a chic romper with a cocktail-inspired neckline, or wearing a classic pencil skirt with a sexy crop top.
- Retro-Chic Style
Retro fashion is known for awning stripes, polka dots, and checks. So, make your summer looks creative by going for them. Like Lise, wear your checkered top with a checkered bottom paired with a retro chic sunglasses and boots. Or, opt for a striped matching set, preferably in jail stripes or awning stripes, and spice it up with brightly-colored earrings like Lise did. Also, think of having a pair of retro sunglasses that will add some bold statement to whatever outfit you’re wearing.
- Effortlessly Cool Look
Denim screams effortless so make your summer style creative by wearing your basic pieces in a more stylish way. Like Lise, wear the Canadian Tuxedo look by wearing a printed chambray shirt instead of a plain one with your favorite jeans. Or, simply add some futuristic feel to your crop top and jeans with a metallic bag and modern sunglasses like she did.
- Sexy-Chic Style
Showing some skin this summer is a great way to look sexy and breezy. For your formal affairs, think of a sheer lace dress that will keep your looks sultry and sexy, or an asymmetric skirt paired with a sexy top. Going for color blocked dresses with form-fitting or sexy silhouettes will make your summer style creative at the same time sexy. Indeed, summer is the perfect season to show off your artistic skills, so flaunt your creative looks flawlessly like Lise always does.
