Summer Fashion Picks with Nicholas Brown

What fashion moments Nicholas and I are loving this summer.

The first time I met my friend Nicholas the first thing that struck me about him was his unique fashion sense. Nicholas has an effortless way of incorporating his personal style with up and coming trends. He also has a way of flawlessly navigating different styles. When he came over to my house for Christmas dinner he wore an impeccable houndstooth suit jacket with a black turtleneck underneath and gold jewelry. But, I’ve also seen Nicholas in ripped jean cutoffs, high tops, and a simple white t-shirt. He can wear and style virtually anything, somehow making it his own. Nicholas is currently a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and I cannot wait to see how he takes the fashion world by storm. To hold you over until that happens, Nicholas and I have collected some of our favorite summer fashion finds to share with you.

The New Cold Shoulder

Get the look: Rosie Assoulin Thousand-In-One-Ways Wool-Cotton Sweater

This summer is all about mixing, matching, and combining loungewear comfort with outerwear flare. This sweater is just the right balance of the two that you can wear all year long.

A Classic High Top with a Twist for Adventure

Get the look: Run Star Hike

In 2020, Chuck Taylor by Converse continues to rock the streets with its classic high top silhouette. I say that this is a must-have, but nowadays who would want a plain black pair? The options are endless.

A Statement Textured and Colored Arm Candy

Get the look: Jacquemus Le Riviera

This summer, I am loving a textured, colorful bag moment. This new arrival from Jacquemus is a must-have… but so is everything else in their L’ANNEE 97 collection.

Matching Sets

Get the look: Khaite Indira Pleated Cotton Bra Top

I have found matching sets to be such a fun way to easily look put together. Now, with jacket and pants, tank top and culottes, and crop top and skirt matching options, there is a set for everyone out there.

Everyday Dainty Bling

Get the look: Shami Beloved Angel Necklace

In a time where fast fashion rules the market, it is easy to forget the other aspects of our outfits that keep us fresh besides a new top or jeans. Timeless accessories can easily turn a boring look into something more polished.

Everyone’s Favorite Sunglasses, but Grown Up

Get the look: Tazi C1

Everyone loves a great acetate eye look, but some styles teeter on the edge of playing “dress up” and saying “I’m adulting”. These frames make it perfectly clear, we mean business.

Safe, Sassy, & Social Distanced

Get the look: Seamless Face Mask

Regardless of one’s stance on masks, I’d have to admit that finding one in a perfect nude is an easy way to correlate all your looks. No need to worry about that boring blue disposable mask when you can use this one for over 10 washes.

Not too Big, Not too Small, Just Right

Get the look: Mejuri Bold Hoops

Gold hoops are everywhere this season but finding a pair that isn’t too big, too gaudy, or too delicate can be tough. This pair should do the trick!

Shady Sleek Side-Eye

This summer’s eyewear took a shady turn as the glossy rimless gradient sunny is a must-have in my wardrobe. The sleek silver hardware paired with the reflective finish and square shape can make anyone feel like they’re in Miami!
