The heat of summer often calls for simplicity. Instead of layering up, it’s time to streamline your look and stick to the basics. Alexander Wang says it best, “Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing.” Being able to exude effortless taste, while donning a minimal look is a measure of true style. This Fashionista does just that in her floral frock, aviator sunglasses and gladiator sandals. This look is basic but not boring, the colorful print and classic accessories culminate in an effortless daytime look fit for any Fashionista.
Less is always more for summertime style, particularly accessories. When you really get down to it, what more do you need aside from some UV protection and a means of telling time. A great pair of sunglasses is crucial for any look and they can effortlessly emanate style. Don’t be afraid to splurge on a great and flattering pair, they are a smart investment to make because you truly will wear them throughout the year. Aviators are a chic and a quintessential frame, however, the circular shape is a refreshing way to round off an ensemble. Another piece worth investing in is a watch. Again, this is an accessory that you can wear every day, especially if you opt for a classic style that will stand the test of time. It is one accessory that is both fashionable and functional.
As the summer continues to heat up with the onset of August, try to keep things simple with your daytime looks. Instead of playing around with different shorts and T-shirt combinations, opt for a streamlined dress. All you need to do is throw on a patterned frock, your sunnies and a watch to create an ensemble that will exude style and simultaneously keep you from overheating amidst the summer heat. It is a simple plan but one that will never fail.
