It is officially August and for a lot of us Fashionistas, that means the fall semester is right around the corner. Finding the right accessories to wear as the summer comes to a close may seem difficult. After all, most of us have been prancing around in swim suits and cut-offs for the past two months. But after taking note of how this Fashionista accessorized her outfit, I guarantee the solution will be crystal clear.
As the summer sizzle begins to turn into a fall freeze, remember how vital transitional pieces are. Starting off with your trusty basics is the key to a late-summer ensemble. This Fashionista kept the color scheme of her basic pieces cool and calm. She wore a denim vest over a crisp white tank and shorts. Washed-out denim, an obvious summer staple, has a way of making every outfit just a bit more rustled up and casual. A vest of this length is great to layer with during every season and has a way of elongating an outfit, so even your shortest shorts will look appropriate, come fall semester.
In order to accentuate the clean lines and hues within an ensemble, your target accessories should be transparent. This Fashionista wore a clear chain bag reminiscent of the iconic Chanel chain satchel. A bag like this can effortlessly give an outfit shape and dimension. This particular bag stopped exactly where her anorak ended, accentuating her sun-kissed legs. It gives an edgy minimalist look to a casual every day ensemble. And, a bag like this lets you show off a cute phone case, lipstick or even your summer sunnies. This Fashionista did not stop at just a clear purse, however. To further coordinate, she steered clear of ordinary sandals and wore some holographic flatforms with transparent straps. The great part about pairing clear pieces together whether it be bangles, rings or necklaces, is that they will always match.
As the summer days come to an end, try your hand at experimenting with transparent accessories whether they be colorful, retail or even DIY. After all, eclectic pieces are the best way to celebrate the end of a fabulous summer.
