A funny thing happens every year as the temperatures begin to rise. The days become longer, it feels like there’s something electric in the air across campus and you find yourself sitting in class with nothing between you and that rooftop barbecue than having to stop home to make an outfit change.
This Fashionista shows us an effortless look that’s studiously stylish for class and equally summery chic for the afternoon hours. Putting a little extra thought into your outfit in the morning will help to eliminate any wasted time you could be soaking up the last couple of weeks at school with your friends.
One essential piece that is showing up everywhere again this year is the maxi! The maxi skirt hit runways last fall and stores this season in every shade, color and pattern so Fashionistas everywhere can mix and match their summery anchors with varied tops and accessories to push the limits with a maxi as the main focus. This week’s Fashionista coordinates the navy blue and white maxi skirt with silver accents and accessories.
Once again, my favorite accessories are rings. I love how the character of a ring selection can complement an outfit. Mixing and matching materials and metals is an easy way to add details to your style. If you love the antique silver look featured this week this Fashionista recommends the wound up silver ring by Lia Sophia. Wrist candy including watches, bangles and bracelets will continue to trend through the summer and beyond. This Fashionista is sporting them all complete with the Tiffany & Co. silver wire bracelet.
Lastly this Fashionista continues to incorporate metallic accents and details all the way down to her sandals. These Steve Madden foolish sandals available in cognac and black colorways are a great investment for the summer months as they are not only comfortable but extremely versatile so you can get the most use out of your pair. Now you know how to pull off this Fashionista’s transcending look! Leaving your only concern to swapping your reading glasses out for your favorite sunglasses!
