TREND: How to Rock the Peacock

A flouncy halter dress is a staple in any Fashionista's summer wardrobe, and this stylish student chose a trendy peacock frock to add some spunk.  The short and flowy silhouette flatters her petite frame, but she adds extra coverage and shows her colors with a striking pair of magenta tights.  She flaunts a comfy and casual pair of periwinkle Keds, which are perfect for a gal on her feet all day at work.  While each piece stands out significantly on it's own, this Fashionista coordinates her colors to balance this outfit so it is not too overwhelming.  These complimentary colors allow the stunning bird to take center stage in this Fashionista's ensemble.

But keep in mind, peacock-inspired pieces do not necessarily have to depict the whole bird.  The trend is equally as powerful if your piece sticks with bright colored feathers instead. So keep your eyes peeled for this chirpy summer trend.  Try rocking the look with a sheer swimsuit cover up at the beach or by matching a peacock-embroidered top with crisp white skinny jeans and tall strappy heels for a night out on the town.

If it is too hot, and you don't want to sizzle in the sun wearing tights, try matching a peacock shirt with a pair of equally bright colored shorts, which can be found at stores like Topshop and American Apparel.

Not daring enough to rock a peacock frock to summer session classes or your internship?  Try a more subtle accessory like a headband or a belt, or wear tamer black and white versions of the trendiest bird this summer– the beloved peacock.
