If there’s one look that’s key to summer fashion it's neutrals and light fabrics. What better way to avoid the heat than by sporting light as a feather fabrics as the summer temperatures begin to soar in the 80s and 90s? There seems to be a constant battle between wearing something fashionably tasteful in the sweltering heat without sacrificing comfort and versatility.

This Fashionista’s take on red adds a refreshing burst of color to compliment the soft white hues of her sheer H&M blouse and Urban Outfitter’s shorts.
Her vintage Coach bucket bag in a bold shade of red stands out the most. But the small details, such as her Poppy King for J.Crew lipstick and mix of bracelets really pull the look together to add some playfulness to her outfit’s classic feel. Lastly, her nails painted in a vibrant red polish are a perfect way to add a little excitement to her classic neutrals.
