While a blustery summer shower was to blame for its premature demise, the Grand Slam street fair in Williamsburg, Brooklyn this Sunday was certainly the place to be. Stylish students and supermodels alike (Erin Wasson and Sasha Pivovarova were both spotted amongst the crowd) converged to enjoy a bounty of local fare and fashion.
Head to Brooklyn if you're looking for some summer style inspiration —The Williamsburg crowd has the relaxed, earthy look down to a science, and loose-fitting garments are a key component. Everything from boyfriend jeans, denim cut-offs, slouchy shirt dresses, and blazers were pleasantly worn in, and were oftentimes accessorized with a simple pair of Ray-Bans and oxford flats. In addition to the oversized aspect, other trends noticed included the usage of bold solids, particularly electric blue and cherry red, in bags, dresses, and satin shirts. Polka dots were often a popular pattern as well.
Brooklyn Bold Pt. 1
A semi-sheer polka dot bouse with Ray-Bans tucked in, electric blue pants, matching bold red lipstick and nails, and a little boxy satchel combine for an incredibly upscale look.
Brooklyn Bold Pt. 2
An off-white blouse, along with some khaki shorts and loafers, are paired with a bold red bag to create an eye-catching yet effortless Sunday look. On the right, a simple band tee balances out some pink neon pants.
This street-crossing couple has mastered the art of casual dressing, layering lightweight shirts and sweaters, and throwing hair up in a loose bun or topping it with a vintage golf beret for a Sunday afternoon on the town.
Brooklyn's Take on Relaxed Jeans
Wide-legged? Boyfriend? Who cares! Opt for whatever fit feels right when you go out to purchase your next pair of jeans, especially thrifted ones. Jeans don't have to have a definitive shape or form to look effortlessly chic, as proven with the pair this girl is sporting.
