Tosser Summer Mix Tape: Karen

karenmorales_playlist

“My playlist is just an eclectic mix of artists and genres which pretty much describes my music taste. Some of the songs are very different from one another. I like various kinds of pop, rock, rap, hip-hop, but I’m most partial to indie music, like the Arctic Monkeys. They’re my favorite band of all time. I usually listen to this playlist when I’m just relaxing in my room, or even getting work done. I would describe this playlist’s vibe as chill with a hint of melancholy since some of the songs in it are pretty emotional and/or romantic.” -Karen

Stunning in Stripes

To be honest, stripes may not be for everyone, but in this Tosser’s case Karen looks gorgeous. She is wearing green sunglasses from NastyGal, a flower necklace from SoGood Jewelry, a striped top from Love Culture and a skirt and wedges from Forever 21.

Cropped Up

Cropped tops are HUGE this summer. Show off some midriff in the summer sun and pair with high waisted shorts for a 90s feel. Even designers often pair a cropped top with a high waisted skirt for a ladylike ensemble.

Cropped Up: Karen

Karen is wearing a black top and floral skirt from Brandy Melville and a studded bracelet from Tobi.com.

“I was just going for a cute and put together but not too fancy casual look,” says Karen when asked about her look. It’s safe to say that she pulled it off successfully!

Pauline is wearing a black turtle neck crop top and heart-shaped sunglasses from Urban Outfitters, black and grey cheetah print shorts from Pac Sun and black braided sandals from Bakers.

Bring on the Heat

Time for some shorts and flats! Tossers are in the mood to show some skin but to stay practical. Here’s what we’re wearing.

Anissa's printed shirt and shoes come from H&M. The shorts she creatively thrifted and made up herself. The watch is, guess? Guess. And the necklace is Forever 21. Long live affordable trends!

Karen rocks the summer casual with her high-waisted jean shorts and long-sleeved striped top. The blue belt adds another pop of color and the brown spiked flats give some nice texture.

The Tosser Team

With more to come, here comes the next Tosser Generation! It’s summer, which means bright colors, cool shoes, and an open attitude toward the new trends that are sure to come funneling into our closets. Here’s a closer look at our team and just what fashions they use to make their unique style so very Tosser.

She swore the mattress was already there. Madeline snagged the gorgeous striped dress from her sister, but found her vintage necklace from Shoppe Pioneer over in Providence. The shoes are Jeffrey Campbell and the rings she bought from Etsy. Apparently they come all the way from Tel Aviv. Cool.

Marina cools off in the shade. She smartly wore white on this blistering hot day, and the lavender pants and bracelet add a nice touch for summer's trend of colored pants.

Because everyone loves a good print, Karen sports a sleeveless blouse with small white print horses to go with her breezy white shorts. She kicks off the outfit with a shiny silver platform wedge, and adds another splash of color with her bright pink toenails.

Lareina rocks the knee high boots and compromises with the summer heat with her Daisy Dukes. Her "Mi Casa Es Tu Casa" helps radiate her welcoming attitude and the hat, well, the hat is just cool.

Erica takes a break from the Tosser Den. We love the navy shorts that add a bit of class to a modern fashion necessity. The long-sleeve shirt with orange stripes pairs well with the shorts for a conservative look, but the studded shoes finish the outfit with just the right kind of punk.
