For those unfamiliar with the pleasantry that an “Indian summer” offers, it refers to a brief spurt of warm weather during the typical chilly days of late fall. We now find ourselves well past autumn, and approaching the lazy days of the summer season, noted for its bright blue skies and balmy days under the sun. However, it is not too late to pay tribute to the “Indian summer” through bright knits, exotically inspired prints, and unique embroidering to give your look an ethnic flare.

This week’s Fashionista takes a laid-back approach to the current exotic trend through her relaxed, yet noteworthy ensemble. She remains informally trendy, not sacrificing comfort, as she sports a pair of worn-in Converse sneakers in a once-stark white hue. A splash of color and texture is provided to the outfit through a richly shaded, knit coral crop top by Free People. She sets off the cropped length of the long-sleeved shirt with a pair of comfortably fitting, higher waist denim shorts. To complete the look, this Fashionista accessorizes with a wrap-around gold accented bracelet by Chan Luu and her other favorite arm charms. The essence of this featured look is completely accessible to any aspiring Fashionista. To exotically enhance your wardrobe this season, it’s all about show-stopping prints in daring color combinations and unique details through beading, embroidering, fringe or whatever will give your ensemble that individual flare. While inspired by a classic autumn Indian summer, this look is one for all seasons.
