With finals on the horizon, many Fashionistas and Fashionistos are realizing one thing: it is officially summer (weather) in Savannah. Temperatures in the low 90s call for some of summer’s top essentials, including high-waisted shorts, crop tops and wedges. Although these may seem like simple basics, I found a Fashionista who defined the true definition of a trendsetter. Check out how this Fashionista has gone above and beyond when it comes to trend forecasting.
I spotted this Fashionista outside of her “home-away-from-home,” the printmaking building. Between classes and completing a work study in the studio, this Fashionista is always on the go. Her floral print crop top is not only trendy, but also perfect for the hot weather. The thin fabric allows this gal to work hard without feeling the afternoon heat. Her high-waisted shorts complement the top because it matches a few tones within the floral print on the shirt. The shorts give this Fashionista the coverage to look stylish, yet appropriate. But the one main detail I liked most about her look were none other than her shoes. These unusual wedges are the perfect accessory to a summer outfit. These shoes are a spin-off of usual wedges. They are the same height on the entire shoe (making it more of a platform), but as comfortable as your favorite pair of wedges. She finishes her look with a neutral cross-body bag and wide-framed sunglasses.
Spotted: Christian Dior’s resort 2015 collection featured a dressier option to the Mary Jane platform wedge.
