As everyone knows, it can be really hard to cool down in the summertime. Obviously you could find the nearest coffee shop and grab an iced coffee to go (and use as an ice pack while you run errands) but you can’t just take off your shorts and top to cool down. Even if you did do that, you still probably wouldn’t be cool enough. Since there aren’t too many options for keeping cool, you have to keep your layers minimal to none. Just carry a larger bag like today’s Fashionista’s so you can shove a lightweight sweater inside in case you have work in a chilly office or class in a hopefully air conditioned room.
This Fashionista is sporting a great summer ensemble made up of light tones and no unnecessary layers. Her look consists of an adorable crop top with “Love Me Forever” written inside of a heart and coincidentally (or not) matching her love-themed top, she is wearing some baby pink shorts. While her clothes are nice and sweet, her one-of-a-kind black sandals give an edgier vibe to her look. They also go well with her black aviators. Finally, she is toting a gray studded bag, which is the perfect size for carrying around that lightweight sweater you might need for later.

How To: Keep your look light and simple, but don’t forget to incorporate at least one unique accessory. Find a cool graphic crop top and pair it with some complementary shorts. Next, get a large tote bag for the essentials and a lightweight layer. Finally, finish off your look with some sunglasses and a unique pair of sandals.
