Angela Simmons Wears Summer Stripe Separates So Here Are 9 Items To Recreate The Look In Every Size
Truth time: When I was younger, I would lie and say that Angela Simmons was my cousin due to us sharing the same last name (and I thought she was super cool, obviously). Nevertheless, you cannot deny that Angela Simmons' style proves her a true fashionista. Ever since I watched Run's House, I have admired Simmons for a variety of reasons, especially her fashion sense.
Simmons has grown since her Run House/Daddy's Girls reality television days. Being a fashion designer and TV host, she has developed a career and it's only just beginning. What is really making people chat about Simmons is her eye-catching street style attire, though. You can find this TV host posting images of her day to day life as well as outfit of the days (OOTDs) on her Instagram feed, to hopefully provide her followers with some style inspiration. I mean, if you did not post your wicked OOTD snap on Instagram, did it really happen? I don't think so.
From sporting the hottest new sneakers to strutting the streets of New York in a midi skirt and high heels, Simmons is always switching up her style. And by watching her fashion sense grow via Instagram, I find myself looking to her for style inspiration from time to time, too.
Most recently, Simmons sported a matching midi skirt and crop top separates combo, printed in vertical and horizontal stripes. The TV host paired the matching separates with blue heels to strut the streets of New York in style. Simmons' look is great for day to night as well.
Are you loving this look, too? If so, I have good news for you. I have found items so you (and I) can recreate this fabulous ensemble IRL. I mean, we can be twinning in stripes together. Deal?
