It's no secret to any Fashionista that tribal print is hot for the summer season. It's splashed all over the runways, from BCBG to Michael Kors. But, no matter which fashion gods praise the print, it is always refreshing to see any trend being worn in a “down to earth” way. While I was sipping on my morning coffee at Starbucks, I could not help but stare at the collection of sequins and bright colors that swept by me. After finally sitting down with this Fashionista she told me that she had just finished her first year of college as a Fashion Merchandising major. I had apparently caught her at a good time, as she was on her way to work and clearly dressed to the nines. Imagine if we all dressed like this for work?
Right away I had to ask about the skirt. It was bright, shiny and fabulous. Not only did I want it for myself, but also the tight bandeau skirt was a statement piece that every girl needs in her closet. A piece that was loud without being overbearing. All Saints offers a skirt very similar to this one and can be seen on Polyvore.
I admired how the Fashionista paired her skirt with a bright coral top. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, coral is the new pink. No coral or orange colored tone exists in the skirt print, but her outfit is an example of how contrasting colors work well with each other. Also, the sequin detail on the skirt gives it that extra edge and what Fashionista doesn't love a little sparkle?
She kept her accessories very neutral, which brought balance to the outfit. Her arm candy was both practical and trendy. She chose a brown wrap-around watch, a turquoise skull bracelet and a gold bracelet that was an impressive result of her own DIY project. Finally, the nude peep-toe wedges are from GoJane. They are versatile and the perfect finishing touch to a knockout outfit.
