Name: Beatriz Laidens
Major: Graphic Design
CollegeFashionista: How does the scenery of Rio de Janeiro inspire your style?
Beatriz Laidens: Because the sun is always shining, I tend to wear shorts and summer dresses in colorful prints and bold accessories. I also adore vests.
CF: What is essential in your wardrobe for the summer?
BL: Jean shorts, for sure!
CF : Where do you usually goes to shopping? Do you have some tips for us?
BL: At the mall, usually. Eclectic is one of my favorites stores. I love the oversized T-shirts and maxi skirts they sell.
CF: What are your favorite accessories?
BL: My favorites would have to be vests and bracelets. Arm candy is great because it gives you the opportunity to add more colors to your outfit.
How To: The key to achieve an outfit like this is to combine colorful accessories with a delicate summer dress. Floral print is a must-have this season. This one from Forever 21 is the absolutely perfect. Colorful bracelets reflect the joy of summer, and Banana Republic has an array of fabulous options. Comfortable shoes are the key to pulling this look together. Flat sandals, like these from Zara, are not too casual and still provide that necessary comfort for painless beauty that lasts the whole day.
