The weather has been pretty unpredictable this summer. You’re not sure whether it’s appropriate to wear dresses and shorts or bring out a light jacket for the rain. This can definitely make getting dressed in the morning more complicated than it has to be. However, you can always find alternative pieces from previous seasons and cross them over to a summer outfit. Take this Fashionista’s sheer chiffon top for instance. This Fashionista can wear this with a skirt on a hot day; but for a day that is a little bit more breezy it can be paired with some nice jeans. She also chose to pair her chiffon top and jeans with cute sandals to complete her look.
