Body activist, model, co-founder of ALDA, Forbes Magazine’s 30under30, and #ImNoAngel campaign spokesperson, Ashley Graham is a huge role model of mine and she embodies the true meaning of sexy at any size.
Below I’ve put together a week’s worth of sexy yet comfy outfits to beat the summer heat, all of them inspired by Ashley Graham’s style.
Low-maintenance Mondays are the best. Just throw on some sneakers, grab your go-to purse, and rock your fave T-Shirt. I typically go for the black staple items from my closet, so I always make sure that I have a good mix of light and dark when it comes to my daily outfits. Also, wraparound chokers are trending and I LOVE them.
Goodbye Monday blues – rock a body-con dress and you’ll get through this day feeling fabulous! This is a super easy outfit to pull together. All you need is a fitting dress and a cute pair of wedges. Simple yet oh-so sexy.
#Humpday. A crop top, strappy sandals, and fitted jeans are all you need for this effortless look. You can go with just about any style of crop top: Off the shoulder, shoulder cut out, strapless, rib cage cutout..so many options! I’ve featured three different ones below to give you options.
Color blocking can sometimes be tricky to master, but it is a fun way to dress your look up or down depending on how your Thursday feels. While Ashley goes all dark in the look above, I love the idea of incorporating some bright, fun color into your summer look.
TGIF. The weekend, has finally arrived, so why not make like Ashley and celebrate with a strappy maxi dress. This is currently a huge trend that adds flair to any outfit. You can also re-create this look in a more casual manner with a fave dress, romper, or even a low-cut shirt by adding a strappy bra/bralette underneath.
Knee-high boots are so fun to dress up or down and they instantly make you feel sexy and fierce. If you want to go for a comfy look, pair them with a flowy dress. If you want something more edgy, add a moto-jacket. And if you are feeling trendy, try something new and add some fringe!
Sunday is a great day to squeeze in a workout. Pick out your comfiest leggings/sweat pants, get your sweat on, then recoup with some Netflix on the couch because tomorrow is Monday!
