Due to the fact that I live on the beach, my year round dressing is based on beach wear. And I guess I have been pushing my creative concepts on different ways to dress for the beach. As a gemini, one reference is never enough. For this Get Dressed With Me, I combined two of my all time fave dressing concepts, “tomboy” and “preppy”. And I like to keep my shorts short to add just a little bit of sensuality to the whole combo.
When embracing “tomboy” for the beach, go for a button-down from the mens department in an extra small and a summer appropriate baseball hat in cotton or straw. To add preppy to this look, play with your color combinations. I love mixing weirdo preppy pastels with bright colors, and classic preppy fabrics in masculine silhouettes. Here I combine a mens linen button-down from Brooks Brothers, and terry cloth tennis shorts from Target a hundred years ago (American Apparel Options). Add a straw baseball cap, Longchamp Love Mag Collab Bag and New Balances and it’s done!
