Three looks that have emerged this season in Boston that have helped to set the tone of the streets are, fun and fashionable interview outfits for all of our local recent college grads, the classic peplum detail for those ladies wanting to sport a vintage inspired look, and of course the carefree punk style that defines our neighborhood year round.
The key to picking a fashion forward interview outfit is to keep your audience in mind. It is best to wear something that is definitively you, but that will also leave a lasting impression. Be it a pair of fresh pair of Michael Kohrs sandals or the pop of a bright red accent piece, choose something that will leave them wanting. Always be true to yourself and wear what makes you feel good, but remember, you’ve got one shot so make it count!
Although a full vintage look isn’t for everyone, there are certain classic trend details that all ladies can enjoy. Peplum detailing on a dress or a top allows the wearer to show off and highlight their hips without looking too wide in the process, it’s the perfect detail for those looking for a little bit of sass and priss at the same time. By pairing a polka dot peplum blouse with a pair of bright shorts, you can rock the present and the past all in one look and feel great while doing so.
This summer’s incarnation of Allston’s punk look is heavily influenced by the grittiness and creativity of 90’s grunge. High waisted shorts as well as low slung pleated maxis are seen most frequently paired with just the right amount of worn, or DIY modified classic band tee. Men’s tanks are printed in bright bold patterns and graphics revealing a quirkier side of stylized punk and can be seen accompanying a plaid button down and accessorized with a skateboard. These, along with many other styles are all over the streets of Boston! The key is to wear all looks with confidence!
