It’s finally summertime and you know what that means––hello shorts, sleeveless tops, flowy skirts and sundresses. We’ve anxiously been waiting for the heat, and it’s here at last. This summer, a perfect go-to outfit for soaking up the sunshine is a pair of cute shorts and a comfy tank. It’s how you choose to accessorize these basics that will make you stand out.
This outfit is great for a day out with friends, out at a beach or even if you are still on campus (good for you, sticking it out at summer school). I spotted his Fashionista in downtown Vancouver rocking a pair of aqua-coloured shorts featuring an edgy cross pattern and a loose, textured tank. She keeps it casual with a pair of white Converse All-Star Chuck Taylor sneakers. Simple white shoes are a must-have for the season because they go with absolutely everything.
As for accessories, she creates an urban chic combination. Five-panel hats are huge this year and come in a wide range of colours and prints. They differ from your typical baseball cap since they have a more relaxed fit. This Fashionista chose a simple two-toned OBEY 5-panel, but you can also find them in florals, stripes, polka-dots and many other designs. They’re a fun way to incorporate more patterns and prints into an outfit.
I love how she wears gold jewelry and incorporates a pale yellow purse, which both work well with the outfit. Adding a gold watch is always a classic accessory that you can’t go wrong with. Her cool lip ring adds as the finishing touch.
Spotted: There are lots of different coloured hats featured in Max Mara’s resort 2014 collection.
