Simplicity, sophistication, and oftentimes stripes are the ever-present fashion trinity that has accompanied Europeans down cobblestone streets for centuries. Luckily, our world is much smaller these days. Jet-setters and the style-savvy have brought their recognizable style abroad, and North Texans may take their cue from them. Wearing the latest collection from SOHO McKinney, Dallas fashion blogger Ryan Ray Roberts models the timeless summer pairing of blue and white and the ultimate in European chic.
Ryan wears vintage overalls imported from France made of workwear canvas. They are elegant and casual as she sits near the villa where summer breezes rustle the nearby vegetation. An ecru organic cotton t-shirt breathes easily beneath; a vintage Balmain scarf is knotted kerchief-style at her throat. Overalls $185 | t-shirt is $75 available in-store.
Beneath an arched walkway, SOHO’s French stripe organic cotton dress is elongating in spite of its horizontal stripes. A bit of artful whimsy is knotted to the handles of The French Circle Basket with a vintage Pucci scarf. Dress $165 | French Circle Basket $150, both available in-store | Espadrilles.
An oversized men’s-style shirt made of Egyptian cotton ties smartly above the flour-sack waist of French linen pants. The classic style of a handmade fedora from Bay Willow Designs keeps the summer sun at bay. Shirt $165 | Pants $185 | Fedora $160 available in-store | Espadrilles.
Ryan is off to wherever she fancies in this French linen skirt with oversized patch pockets and a striped organic cotton t-shirt. Grab a French basket and sunnies for a day of sunshine and shopping! Skirt $165 | t-shirt $75 and available in-store | Espadrilles.
SOHO McKinney is proudly designed and made in McKinney, Texas.
