Can you believe how fast the school year went by this year? It seems like just yesterday Fashionistas were trying to adjust their fashion to the holidays and the snow. Whether you graduated and now are entering your definition of the real world, or you’re an undergrad experiencing summer vacation, it’s a few weeks in and so far the summer weather has us racing to get our warm weather essentials. This summer is going to be all about how you pop your choice of color. This Fashionista’s pop of royal blue is a gorgeous color for her, and the dress is a perfect simple silhouette. This Fashionista layered in such a way that she will be sophisticated for the daytime but can ditch the blazer for a night out on the town. I still am loving the menswear trend and think blazers are the perfect replacement for a cardigan or heavier jacket when you want to dress up your look and still cover up, and there are many designers adding their twist to the classic piece.
This Fashionista knows how to accessorize her look in a fabulous way. Her thick strapped white heels are fun for the upcoming summer month and add a little pizzazz to her sophisticated look. She decked out her arms in bracelets and bangles of all forms as well, which we know have been a Fashionista favorite the last few weeks; the more the merrier! Her bold colored dress was belted with a skinny brown belt to add a curve in her summer frock, an addition that can give you a totally different look to a simple dress. This Fashionista simply looks gorgeous all around and her use of bold color and blocking will be seen everywhere in the coming months and is a trend that seems to be not going anywhere for now!
