A week of skateboarding, art openings, wall painting and overall summer fun and projects.
Ok so the beautiful Nikki Reed stepped out wearing this monstrosity the other day and it needs to be dissected and put back together the Style Hub way.
I would say the biggest mistake she made was with the shoes and the hat… oh and the top. Yeah ok the entire outfit is a nightmare.
When you wear a pair of ripped up, baggy, boyfriend jeans, you don’t pair them with clunky BROWN!! ankle booties. This makes the whole lower part of her outfit heavy and frankly hurts my eyes. If you are going to wear the baggy boyfriend jean trend, please do it with a pair of sandals. Either high heel or flat. The openness of the shoes help to lighten the outfit.
Next, the hat.. I give her props for trying out a new hat trend but not only is the styling wrong, but so is the colour. If you are going to wear a wide brimmed hat like this, you must wear your hair down, not pulled back, otherwise the hat starts to take over. The colour must coincide with the outfit too. Why she chose a forest green pseudo cowboy hat is beyond me.
Moving on to the top(s). My suggestion would be to ease up on this type of layering in the summer and keep it simple. An airy camisole also helps keep the outfit light and easy.

Is anyone pumped about this? I kinda am. I want to see what Jay Z’s taste in art is like or if this is just to “try” and do something different. Good on him for giving it a try.
Until then here is my new favourite Jay Z song “Oceans” with the incomparable Frank Ocean. Best lyric… “I hope my black skin don’t dirt this white tuxedo before the Basquiat show…”
