There is nothing I love more than long layers with a pair of cut-off shorts during the spring time. This Fashionista really knew how to pull off her long, fringe sweater by Free People with the most basic of accessories. What I love most about sweaters like this one or similarly, the printed kimono jackets, is that they can be worn in so many different ways and can be dressed up or down with simple accessories. This summer, these kimono cardigans can be worn as a bathing suit cover-up with your favorite bikini; throw on your favorite flip-flops and beach tote for a trendy look on the beach or to steal the spotlight at your next pool party. For another option, pair a kimono cardigan with your favorite sundress and accessorize with a pair of booties and a colorful clutch. This Fashionista paired her’s with shorts and a basic T-shirt.
To top off her look, this Fashionista wore a pair of strappy gladiators, an essential in any spring wardrobe. For a pop of color, she accessorized with an orange and gold beaded necklace with a statement pendant, like this one from Nordstrom. For an added statement, pair a necklace like this Fashionista’s with other mismatched, delicate gold necklaces.
While shopping, it’s important to buy versatile pieces that can be accessorized in a variety of ways. That way, they can be easily worn from season to season and will be worth every penny!
