Here in Southern California, the strong sunshine in September makes our summer days sizzling hot. But students living by the coast know that when the bright sun goes down in the evenings, so does the temperature. When it’s time to hit the town for dinner or to enjoy the sunset on the beach, careful planning is required. You don’t want to be shivering all night or uncomfortable if you end up on the sand!
Being a student that is living within five minutes from the beach, this Fashionista knows how to dress for a summer evening out on the town. She knows how mandatory it is to feel cozy, especially when the breeze starts to pick up. This stylish student also knows that it is possible to rock her personal style while staying warm. She picked a soft long-sleeved top, which is printed with delicate flowers, and paired it with a simple gray maxi skirt. This skirt was purchased at her favorite California-based boutique, Brandi Mellville. This Fashionista accessorized her relaxed outfit with a bohemian bag. Here is a similar cross-body bag. The fringes and color of this leather cross-body purse complement her incredible, beachy locks. A pair of strappy sandals completed her look.
What to learn from this Fashionista? Ditch the need to have a structured outfit or flashy fabrics and instead choose comfy materials for those late-summer evenings. You can feel snug while looking stunning. If you are seriously in the “comfy” mood, throw on a soft maxi dress. There’s a reason that basic cotton has been around for so long!
Now, listen up—go throw on your coziest cotton attire, slip on some flip flops and let your hair down, no fussing allowed! You will look effortlessly adorable as you carry the final drops of summer sunshine into the school year.
