Brains + Style Go Hand in Hand With the Latest Trending Hashtag

There’s a new hashtag we’re in love with that has nothing to do with hot men + [fill in the blank] or organization (we’ll never forget you, #MenandCoffee and #Shelfie!). Today, we’re introducing #Literaryswag. Created by writer Yahdon Israel, aka @Yahdon, this hashtag proves that those who are stylish can also be brainy. It pairs the best in street style with smart reads, helping us create a summer reading list at the same time.

We love how this #girlboss is reading up on how to rule the world from the O.G. girlboss, Sophia Amoruso. Of course, her masculine-meets-feminine outfit is on point. (via @rawrsavvyreads)

This Insta snap has us thinking about silver slip-ons all of a sudden. The pairing of the printed pants with the metallic shoe adds glam, “look at me” action on the street. The Vintage Vonnegut is just as graphic as the rest of this beautifully composed image. (via @olcollitswag)

Ooh, we love a color theme. How cute is this shades of red and burgundy image? Pedro is about baseball player Pedro Martinez. A gal that’s sporty, chic and well-read is a gal we want to meet! (via @gracerenata)

First off, cuteness points to the pup. But extra points to the owner for matching her dog’s collar to her eye-popping pants, which get a dash of casual with the navy Birkenstocks. Leaves of Grass was one of our favorite poetry reads in high school, and this worn copy brings back so many memories: “I am satisfied… I see, dance, laugh, sing.” (via @murrderdith)

American Gods is essentially a road-trip story, and this outfit looks perfect to take off at a moment’s notice in the car. Everything in the photo looks soft and cozy — we definitely want to know what filter she used! (via @chey.mar)

An Anthology of Graphic Fiction paired with a graphic, printed dress is a win-win combo for us. The blues of this image make us want to curl up in bed and read all day. (via @piggy.flowers)

Summer means printed tops, ripped jeans, sandals and a copy of a favorite, well-worn book. This #literaryswag-ger is getting into some great tales about life in Dublin in Joyce’s Dubliners — hopefully she’s gathering inspiration for her next trip abroad! (via @rebsthegreat)

What would your book/outfit combo be? Tell us in the comments, and don’t forget to share your #literaryswag!
