College students everywhere are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel as finals come to an end and the semester wraps up. So as the depression of being cooped up in the library subsides, there is no better way to begin your summer than in a bright, patterned maxi dress! Not only does the maxi dress embody all that is summer, but it’s chic and easy to move out from your student abode and can take you from brunch with your friends all the way to a dinner date. Also, sporting lively colors will not only brighten up your day, but anyone you come in contact with. This was the exact thought process I had when I encountered this Fashionista because not only does she look effortless, but that pattern immediately put a smile on my face.
From floral prints to stripes to tribal influences, there were so many patterns on the spring runways that now you can’t even walk through a store without being influenced by racks and racks of fun prints. Wear a floral print to channel your romantic and feminine side or show your stripes for a more sporty, nautical look. Any direction you go, you’re guaranteed to exude style.
Now back to this Fashionista. She completed her outfit with turquoise accents, which are the perfect complement to the warmer colors of her dress. The accessories are subtle, but I appreciate how she didn’t shy away from adding more color to her ensemble. She truly created a ready-to-wear summer look. To top off the outfit, I would add a neutral cross-body bag or a cork clutch. Now you’re ready to start summer off in style!
