Are you under the assumption that summer means wearing only bright pinks, greens, and oranges? Are you trapped in an endless cycle of neon "summer" colors only brought out of the closet when the heat index reaches the triple digits? Well fear no more, Fashionistas, this Fashionista is bringing the latest breezy summer day outfit in cool blues, browns, and reds. When I see an outfit like this I think cool desert colors, understated but vibrant all on their own. These cool muted colors are the perfect transition from summer to a cooler fall palette.
This Fashionista paired her printed top with loose fitting chambray shorts, a bright pink shoulder bag, and my favorite little accessory: a skinny orange leather belt. The orange in the belt accented the colors in her printed tank perfectly. Not only are the soft hues in her tank just right for an afternoon lunch date, but the mix of pink in the purse and orange in her belt gives the subtle pops of color she needed.
I love ModCloth because I always find unique pieces at amazing prices. Today I was searching for a tunic that featured colors similar to my Fashionista, and came across this geometric printed tank. I love the colors, and insistently envisioned myself wearing it all summer, and then into the fall months paired with a little jacket.
For chambray shorts that are the perfect basic to pair with a busy top, I found this pair of light cotton shorts, breezy and light for hot summer days. So remember, Fashionistas, tone down a look with muted desert colors, mix them in a print with pops of color accents and your outfit is simply perfect.
