This summer is winding down faster than the blink of an eye. Often times it seems like summer is year-round here in Southern California. But eventually, the cute floppy hats and summer shades will be replaced with beanies and gloves. Before the summer sweat becomes a fall chill, get ready to go out with a bang.
This Fashionista had a look that was undeniably bold. I can always appreciate a girl that makes a maxi dress look like it was tailored especially for her. With a bit of a twist on the classic nautical stripe, this thickly striped chevron maxi is a summer staple that every Fashionista should invest in. This print is unchallenged when it comes to elongating and flattering a girl’s curves. Whether worn alone or layered with a cropped denim jacket, a piece like this makes for a perfect platform to pile on statement jewelry.
There is no holding back when you are accessorizing for an eye-catching look toward the end of this summer. The key to executing a look like this perfectly is to use warm toned statement pieces. This Fashionista proved just that by wearing a short gold necklace with dazzling turquoise stones. This warmth of this beautiful and bold necklace ties in with the harshness of the stripes for a balanced look. Even though it is full of luster and hue, this shorter necklace looks well styled because it perfectly mimics the shape of the dress’ scoop neckline. Even if you pair statement rings or bags, make sure that in addition to coordinating the hues of the statement pieces, their shapes correspond as well.
Statement jewelry has been every Fashionista’s favorite for quite some time now. It is easy to make a plain white tee glamorous with one chunky necklace or two. But before the season ends, get in one last summer adventure by wearing entire outfit that harmonizes your statement pieces and accessories. Challenging trends is what creates new ones, so pay attention to hues, lengths and shapes, and remember: the bolder, the better.
