Ashlee shot by //d. for the StitchUp 1/3



When we all put together an outfit in the morning it can be really easy to go overboard, especially when we have some particular pieces we just love to wear. This summer I’ve been trying to focus a little bit on people that do so much with so little while previously it’s been about keeping cool while holding interest in your outfit. This week, again, is all about simplicity and subtlety.

Ashlee’s black tank gives a clean base to a rather manically patterned pair of shorts. Her choice to keep things clean-cut makes the shorts the feature, but the quiet details here are great too. Ashlee had some shimmery gold eye makeup on, which was subtle enough that I didn’t notice it until we’d turned around to face the sun. It really picked up on the golden yellows in the shorts and combined nicely with her other small gold accessory pieces, like the watch and rings.

The mix of patterns between bag and shorts is an interesting choice — to pair an equally busy bag with such a well meshed outfit feels like it might have been an afterthought, but with Ashlee’s sunny disposition it works. The way someone carries themselves can really alter the way we perceive them and their style of dress.

    Refreshingly different and quite attractive. Would certainly turn my head which happens rarely, if ever.

    She WAS actually working the camera. it was great. she’s probably been one of about 4 people that i’ve shot for this project that actually needed NO direction.

    Nice look, and a beautiful woman. I could do without the bag though. Something with a flat pop of colour would have suited it better I think.
