Lauren Conrad is my style icon and role model in life – I am inspired by everything she does, whether that’s starting her own clothing line or taking a beautiful Instagram photo. When it comes to fashion, she always looks chic and stylish. I recently saw this look in Darling Magazine and love how simple it is while also incorporating trendy elements, such as the asymmetrical skirt. It’s a great business casual outfit for summer. To get the look, start with a basic black tank top layered under a beige blazer. Pair with a white asymmetrical skirt or skort (yes, skorts are back!). I never would have thought about pairing the white and light beige hues, but it looks crisp and classy. Finish the look with some strappy black heels. When it comes to beauty, a berry-colored lip gloss will pop against the neutral tones of the ensemble. To complete the polished, yet casual look, pull hair back into a sleek ponytail.
I love the chambray style that has been popular this past year. Chambray shirts are so versatile because you can dress them up, dress them down and make them look girly or edgy. I’m so glad that sleeveless versions are easy to find this summer… and affordable! Target and H&M have some great options. Here are some of my favorite ways to style these trendy tops.

Make a statement. Spice up these simple, neutral tops with a statement necklace! It adds instant color and style. Another way to stand out is to pair it with bold bottoms, such as a patterned skirt, colorful jeans or floral shorts.
Howdy, y’all. I’m a country girl at heart, so my cowboy boots are a staple in my wardrobe. For a complete cowgirl look, I like to wear them with a chambray top, flowy skirt and girly accessories. Keeping it casual and feminine is the key to getting this style.
Girly girl. Paired with pastels or florals, chambray tops look soft and feminine. Add dainty accessories, but don’t overdo it. Top it off with soft waves and natural-looking makeup.
Edgy. Pile on the studs and layer a button-up chambray top over a graphic tank to get this look. Finish this fashionable ensemble with black skinny jeans and heeled booties.
Wrap it up. Even though it’s summer, a light, breezy scarf is a cute way to accessorize. A fedora and cross-body bag are the perfect addition for a day of strolling in the sun.
Fancy pants. Just because it looks like denim, doesn’t mean it has to be casual. Pair with a dressy skirt, heels and some classy accessories. Just the right attire for a night out on the town!
