I've always looked to boxy clothes when I feel like integrating some movement into my wardrobe. So when I read "Find Your Fashion Formula" in the June issue, I wasn't surprised to discover that that the boxy top and culottes equation was a winning combination for me. Not only are culottes extremely comfortable, they give you the added benefit of a high-waist cut, which is great for accentuating the waistline and really highlights an hourglass figure. This cropped sleeveless vest by Mario Schwab draws attention to my midriff, so my torso isn't lost in heaps of fabric. I decided to finish off the look with neon pumps for an unexpected jolt of color. I plan to usher this super wearable pairing right into fall.
