Frida Gustavsson’s Preppy Fall Style Has Us Swooning


A well dressed gal knows how to balance. A dramatic evening blazer with an a-line denim skirt may not sound incredibly fashion forward, but when that skirt has oversized white buttons running down the center and you add a chic pair of faux-animal skin shoes, that’s another story. Swedish model Frida Gustavsson proves over and over that she knows exactly how to play the notes of a mix-and-match outfit, and she’s perfected the aura of preppy-chic in these ensembles below.

Daily Denim Tip: Try A Thicker Cuff For A Different Jean Shorts Look


Swedish model & blogger Karin Bylund shows us a different way to rock acid wash shorts this summer—rather than frayed edges or a small cuff, she folds up her denim for a mega-cuff that creates a slimming effect on the legs (not that she needs it, but some of us do!) and a bit of a different, dramatic approach to summer dressing. We’re digging the wash, too.
