It’s finally August and Southern California is experiencing some bizarre weather at the moment. Yesterday, it was cloudy in the morning, but still hot because of the humidity and rained later on in the day. It’s still summer, so you want to wear those high-waisted shorts, crop tops and sundresses. But it’s around the time to make that transition into fall clothing. It’s not easy to gradually change your wardrobe to encompass both seasons. But this Fashionista showed how easy it is to wear something that is perfect for any season, while still looking chic and elegant.
A huge trend this season that deserves some recognition are maxi skirts. Maxi skirts are perfect for the summer, or any season for that matter. It’s a staple piece everyone should have in their wardrobe. But why is the maxi skirt such a huge trend? It’s simple really; maxi skirts can go with anything and be transformed in so many different ways. It is also a great transition piece for the fall season. This Fashionista made her maxi skirt the statement piece of her outfit. The slit on the side elongates her legs while not showing too much, which makes her look classy.
She paired her skirt with a bold geometric patterned top. Geometric patterns have also been very popular this summer. The circles, squares and triangles can be found in almost every store. The trend can be scary, but it shouldn’t be. The best way to wear your print is by knowing how to balance. Pair the item with toned down solid colors. Her top is slightly flared with strappy shoulders, which makes her look very feminine. Paired with her skirt, it creates a fun summery look.
She kept her accessories to a minimal. Her feather necklace creates a nice contrast to the top because of the gold color. But because it’s so small and dainty, it doesn’t take away from the top and skirt. Her sandals were the smart choice for this look. They are comfortable to walk around in and look like you made more of an effort than wearing flip flops. The nude color goes well with her skin tone and aren’t the first thing you notice. Her purse is the right size for going out to lunch with friends or on a date. It fits exactly what you need and nothing else. The burgundy is a nice pop of color. Yet, it’s so small and neutral that it creates a nice balance to the whole look.
