There are always those few summer days when wearing pants is acceptable. I spotted this week’s Fashionista in the perfect outfit for a summer day when the weather isn’t too hot. What attracted me to this Fashionista was her pants. They are very lightweight and loose fitted. These pants are definitely the pair of pants everyone should have for the warmer seasons. The pants also incorporate a pattern that is simply eye-catching. These pants can be mistaken for a maxi skirt if you don’t look closely since they are meant to be light and flowy. She decided to go simple and pair these pants with a black half sleeved T-shirt. Since her outfit consists of neutrals, she decided to complete the look with a neon statement necklace that adds a pop of color to her outfit. This is the perfect look for a day around town, or just add a pair of wedges for a night out!
