As college students, it’s often times a little too easy to roll out of bed (after pressing the snooze button multiple times), throw on a sweatshirt and yoga pants and run out the door to wherever the day may lead us. While this might seem like the easy thing to do, what many people don’t realize is that looking like you “tried” to look presentable is easier than one may think. Having a few key accessories or a signature lip color can turn an outfit from blah to fabulous in seconds. Though this Fashionista’s ensemble is quite a few steps up from a sweatshirt and yoga pants, her ability to accessorize a simple color palette with bright accents makes all the difference.
This Fashionista not only had the perfect fun, girly outfit for summer, she had a personality to match! Her flowy cream top and purple cut-offs look beyond adorable together, but she doesn’t stop there! She completes her look with a pair of colorful summer wedges, matching necklace and bracelet set and bold lip color. Her platform wedges incorporate the purple from her shorts along with other essential summer colors like pink, orange and yellow. They look great with her coral pedicure and are the perfect height to appropriately dress up a pair of shorts. Wedges are a perfect shoe choice for summer because they are comfortable to walk in, come in all sorts of colors and patterns and look great with basically any outfit.
An intermixing of color continues with this Fashionista’s matching mint green necklace and bracelet. We are seeing a lot of bold jewelry, similar to what she is wearing, on the runway and in the magazines this summer. Mint green is a popular color for the season and looks fresh and dainty surrounded by gold trimming. The bracelet is adorned with mint green circles that are then surrounded by strings of larger gold balls. She even takes it a step further by mixing the mint green and gold with one silver ring and one rose gold ring. It’s summer! Push the rules about mixing metals aside, because anything goes. Follow her lead by topping things off with a bold lip. She selected a deep summer berry hue, what will you choose?
