Summer is the time to shine. Do away with any and all drab colors, Fashionistas, and play around with some of the brightest of shades. The sun is shining and although we Fashionsitas are meant to shine all year ‘round, the summer sun sets the stage for some extra fun. Today’s Fashionista’s look is just that: super fun and very flirty.
She starts with a geometric-printed tube dress. These little dresses are perfect for summer. They come in a variety of colors for every skintone and are simple and light for easy wearing. The cinched waist also makes the look flattering for any frame. There are tons of dresses out there but check out some with similar functional pockets at Forever 21 and Dillard’s. For even more functionality, you can also opt for a romper like this one from Forever 21. You can dress these looks up or down depending on your destination.
The important thing to remember with prints, especially with dresses and one-piece garments, is that it’s tough to pair them with any accessories that are too busy. It’s best to let them have center stage. Fortunately, nude is very in for this season and also stands strong as a classic color for summer accessorizing. Today’s Fashionista is right on top of things. She wears a pair of beige strapped wedges, which are perfect for almost any summer outfit. N.Y.L.A. makes a cute espadrille while MIA and Michael Antonio have equally fashionable choices for wedge sandals as well.
Hats are another great accessory that work incredibly well in lighter shades. Today’s Fashionista tops her look off with a cute fedora. Take her lead and purchase your own fedora from Juicy Couture. Fedoras are a nice buy any time of the year because they can be worn throughout varying seasons so you don’t have to worry about it not getting its fair use. If you’re a bit more daring and looking for a little more drama, try your hand at a floppy sun hat. They’re very chic and are a style perfect for the summer Fashionista. Nordstrom has a straw sun hat that will make you stylish and offer up some practical shade. Form and function unite with these hats, so you can spend a little more time enjoying the sun than worrying about adverse effects.
As most of us Fashionistas are finishing up classes and gearing up for summer, it’s time to purchase season staples that are easy and fashion-forward. Start with some great prints and simple nudes and you’ll be well on your way to a fabulous season!
