What are the items that make up your closet? My cousin Jermaine has some of the coolest pieces and the thing that makes the pieces so cool is that everyone doesn’t have them. Why? Because her statement pieces are all thrifted and vintage finds from some of her favorite thrift stores. Jermaine is able to find designer bags, kimonos, dashikis, tunics, cool tee shirts and classic blazers. This post is dedicated to her style and an introduction to some of those pieces that makes her style so unique.

This white tunic is Middle Eastern inspired and an essential for hot summer days. The white tunic paired with solid colors, like the red bag and green sandals makes the tunic updated and classic.

The modern dashiki! The basic khaki color gets a kick when paired with red geometric lines. Pair the top with grey jeans and a red or nude pump.

The classic, Ralph Lauren shirt gets the dress appeal. why not wear a shirt as a dress? The familiar white and blue lines takes us straight to the Hamptons or the shore. Red is a great color to compliment this shirt but you may also choose an orange for additional summertime punch.

Janelle Monae brought the derby hat back and this look is a homage. A vintage tee shirt paired with a blazer and the derby brings this outfit from day to night.

A great thrift find that is underrated and not utilized enough is the silk robe. This Chinese inspired style is fierce and June Ambrose agrees. Check her Instagram because she made these robes style approved. The robes are a staple for Jermaine and you can find plenty of them in her closet.
