If there’s anything more inspiring than celebrity looks, it has to be the everyday looks of regular people. For days you don’t know what to wear, just visit fashion sites like Chictopia and browse the hundreds of looks people upload everyday. Chictopia is where we found our latest inspiration for a casual look that makes use of a woven clutch.
While blogger Cassie posted this photo on Chictopia over 2 years ago, her outfit will still work in the summer. The blogger combined 3 basic pieces that make a perfect summer outfit- a floral sleeveless blouse, denim cutoffs, and a straw clutch.
