Just like my weight my fashion has reached a plateau.
I consider myself to be very plain like vanilla when it comes to my personal style. Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of starting my own Lookbook.nu in the effort to expand my readership despite, not being as fashionable as majority of the cool kids on the site.
Someone asked me what is my fashion uniform? At the time I couldn’t answer because I never been a fan of the “fashion uniform” I feel such a uniform is limited, unimaginative and quite frankly not stylish.
However, with this record breaking heat here in Kansas and my ability to never be on time to anything I have to be able to get dress quick, appropriate and weather efficient. What I’ve noticed that for the past two summers’ I have worn the same pair of cut-off cargos almost every day to everyplace.
I bought these shorts from Old Navy (don’t ask me why I was there I just like a bargain) last summer for three bucks and change. They were actually pants that I specifically bought so I could cut them into shorts. I also replace the original belt with a shoulder strap from an old military weekend bag.
I personally think cargo shorts are the quintessential summer fashion staple.
Say what you will about cargo shorts but these things are amazing. They have multiple pockets so no man bag, they’re baggy so they conceal all body types and did I mention they absolutely go with everything.
AND WELL VENTALATED!
Green is a versatile color being that it’s the foundation color of camouflage and by far the largest contributing color in nature. So much so that many animals and creatures have adapted to their environments by taking on a green hue so in other words GREEN MATCHES ANYTHING.
Last week I took note of how many times I had worn these shorts. From trips to the gym, grocery run, work meetings, movies, dinner dates and clubs, even the lake and not to count how many airports these flavorsome dungarees seen they have been my number one go to item of the season. I know this is an overused cliché but you can dress them up or down.
Oh and let’s not forget these are a size 30 waist. Eat that!
By the way what is your favorite fashion summer piece?
