Some people dress with the weather in mind while others simply disregard the forecast and wear what they please. This Fashionista definitely falls into the latter category. Despite the temperature being on the chilly side on this particular day along with the occasional sun shower, I spotted her while out and about sporting an asymmetrical maxi dress made of a comfortable jersey material paired with a light denim jacket and pointed toe flats.
It is clear that this Fashionista doesn’t shy away from wearing color. The coral hue of her dress is appropriate for this season while acting as the focal point for her entire outfit. To keep attention focused on the maxi, she chose to don several neutral colored metallic accessories, from a small quilted cross-body bag to a harness style necklace (a DIY which this creative talent made herself). A jean jacket is a timeless layering piece to have in your closet and this Fashionista successfully incorporates one here to keep the bright tone of the main element from overpowering the look.
The maxi dress’s slightly higher cut in the front falls at the perfect length to allow visibility of her shoes. I enjoyed this Fashionista’s choice of accessories at the top and bottom of this outfit, particularly the vintage inspired cameo-like earrings and flats adorned with embroidered tiger faces. They are fun and unique touches that show some personality.
If you want to try incorporating some color into your own wardrobe, summer is a good time to begin. Maxi skirts or dresses are great options to consider as both are often affordable and available in a wide variety of shades and patterns. This one
from Old Navy is an easy choice. Try pairing it with a jacket such as this denim one
from American Eagle Outfitters and cute flats
to give off a casual vibe or with a blazer
, wedge heeled sandals
and a swipe of lipstick for evening-appropriate summer attire.
