Wearing: Topshop Boutique silk shirt (similar) / Zara skort (similar) / Ray-Ban sunglasses (high street alternative) / Proenza Schouler bag (high street alternative) / Topshop Unique heels (similar)

Ah, the ubiquitous Zara skort. Unlike dungarees/overalls and Birkenstock sandals, skorts and heeled sandals are the only trends that I'm into this Summer. I like the concept of skorts because they're practical in that you have the same comfort and ease of movement which you would have if you were to wear shorts, but they smarten up your outfit as they look like skirts from the front. I practically live in shorts in the Summer and skorts add some much-needed variety to my Summer looks. They allow me to not look like I'm wearing shorts all the time even though I am technically wearing shorts (all the time). That's a win-win in my case. Anyway, I really like this Zara skort: the asymmetric design looks striking and the geometric structure is oddly flattering. As for the silk shirt, I consider it as much of a wardrobe staple as the basic t-shirt. I prefer loose or oversized ones because they're comfortable and effortless. Both the skort and silk shirt look formal and dressy but are actually easy and comfortable pieces to wear. In my opinion, an all-black outfit creates the illusion of a polished and put-together outfit when, in fact, you put in minimum thought and effort. There's just something about all-black outfits that instantly make you look more chic. This is perfect for lazy days when you're not in the mood to dress up but still want to look good.

  19. Simple outfits are the best. You can fool people into thinking you're dressed up simply by wearing black. You look great!
