What’s there not to smile about? It’s summertime! Under the beating sun and damp humidity, this Fashionista from the University of Cincinnati in Clifton, Ohio has just the right outfit to keep cool and beat the heat.

As this Fashionista perfectly demonstrates, one can never go wrong with a pair of high-waist shorts this season. Denim, distressed, printed or brightly colored, high-waist shorts of any kind offer so much versatility in a wardrobe. This Fashionista pairs her cuffed vintage denim shorts with a loosely tucked, lightweight button-up tank. Her lightly colored peach blouse balances out the dark wash shorts and complements her hair color and complexion. Also, it is just the right color to keep cool in the warm weather! Depending on the occasion, try tying up the blouse in a simple knot to create the perfect transition from lunch date to poolside attire. American Apparel is one of my favorite brands for basic cropped tops and tanks that will match well with high-waist shorts.

This Fashionista’s vintage influenced look is completed with a leather belt and accented by a simple gold watch. Her creatively painted nails in turquoise, stripes and floral add just the right splash of color and pattern to this outfit! Also note the effortless waves in her hair, which is an easy summer hairstyle that can be recreated by tying damp hair up in a loose bun — a spritz or two of salt water helps! It’s amazing how much the little details can count toward making a great outfit from head-to-toe. Everything comes together to successfully create this Fashionista’s breezy, playful look!
