Beautiful, warm weather was in full swing last week and students all over the UAlbany campus were embracing the opportunity to break out their summer wardrobe. I saw colorful sundresses, high-waisted shorts and high-low skirts everywhere I looked. It was this week’s Fashionista’s elevated simplicity that caught my attention. Her classic pieces work together to create an airy and sophisticated look that is the epitome of effortless elegance.
Keeping up to date on trends and accessories is of course an important part of fashion. However, as this Fashionista demonstrates, sometimes rocking wardrobe staples can simply be quite fashionable. She wears a light chambray shirt that she has tucked under to emphasize the waistband of her army green pants. I love these pants for their ankle length fit and subtle zipper details. These similar pants from Urban Outfitters have a tapered fit as well to create the illusion of a long leg. She carries an orange tan tote which provides a pop of color and on her wrist she models a lovely rose gold Fossil watch. She completes her look with H&M sunglasses and big diamond studs.
I love how this Fashionista was able to keep her outfit simple but exude high fashion and elegance. Try out her look; pair a button-up top with an ankle length pair of pants and don’t over accessorize. Feel confident in your wardrobe classics and modest jewelry and rock this sophisticated look. Combining timeless pieces with minimal accessories will convey a look of effortless elegance.
