Every summer I face a similar challenge of how to dress practically (Atlanta is on average about 89-degrees during the month of July) but stylishly. While the temptation will always remain to simply don a pair of your favorite cut-offs and a tank top, it’s hard to stave off the guilty feeling that you could be dressed a bit more originally.
This Fashionista shows that practicality and style can be easily combined to have an outfit that will keep you sweat-free and trendy simultaneously. By pairing a light chambray, perfect for a slightly chilly day, with a simple pleated skirt and gladiator sandals, she is able to stay comfortable in the hot summer sun; however, it is her statement necklace that truly ties together her outfit for a chic, ready-to-wear outfit. Through her combination of basic, lightweight pieces with a trendy statement necklace, this Fashionista is able to easily pull off a practical yet chic ensemble.
