Fingers drowned in chunky silver rings, sun kissed skin, golden salty mane, and usually dressed in crochet and tie-dye from head to toe. Here are a few reasons why Mimi Elashiry, the 19-year-old model and blogger from Bondi, will become your new style obsession this summer.
Mimi has been involved in the fashion industry for a number of years and her life has become one big flashbulb moment. You may recognise the social media darling from recent Roger David campaigns or as the new face of Glue Store.
This free-spirited little pixie has a self-described earthy style – she likes to incorporate a lot of vintage pieces, with a hint of the 60’s, adding some flares or bohemian jingly belts and bangles.
She is often seen playing with volume, as she pairs oversized items with sleek leather jackets or woolen akubras. The reason the trendsetter’s look is so appealing to her fashionable fans, is because her look is versatile and not only appropriate for summer, but throw on a chunky knit and a beanie and you are ready to tackle negative two temperatures.
Mimi is somewhat of a style mixologist who can rock all black Alexander Wang with multi-textured layered sequins with a flanny tied around her waist.
And her big style did not stem from big designers or big cities, but was drawn from inspirations such as her home on the coast, nature and her love of dance. This fashion hunter hauls most of her unique pieces from markets, boutiques and op shops that she visits during her travels.
Mimi has a less is more philosophy until it comes to accessories. Her signature crystals pendants and delicate chokers are always hanging from her neck, along with paisley headscarves and studded belts.
The best stories start at the beginning right? Well the best outfits start from inside out. Continuing her accessory obsession, Mimi completes any ensemble with a lacey bralet or a crochet crop that peeks out from behind light and flowy camis or maxi dresses.
Mimi Elashiry represents simple perfection and is the ideal fashion icon for this summer. She turns up the heat on simple looks and takes them to a whole new level. The model reflects the relaxed Australian attitude in the form of fashion and wouldn’t be our ‘It’ girl if she were doing it wrong.
