If there were a perfect word to describe Southern California during the summer, it would be bright. The sun shines over our golden state all season long, illuminating all the colors on earth. With no cloud in sight to make our summer dim and gray, the next two months will be filled with sunshine, radiance and warmth. So why not dress for the season?
Color can be a scary thing to incorporate into your outfit. It’s easy to keep to what you know and play it safe. Many of us are afraid that if we do something different to our appearance, people will think we’re trying too hard. But all of that is mental. It’s time to stop thinking like that and be confident and comfortable with ourselves and try something new. You can make your outfit shine bright like the sun while keeping true to yourself.
One item that will always be popular during the summer are bright colored pants. This Fashionista is wearing her bright pink colored pants. Colored pants are a great statement piece to have in your wardrobe. Yet, they are difficult to style. It’s easy to go from looking chic to childish. But this Fashionista knew what she was doing when she put those pants on. She decided to make the pants the main focus of her outfit. The cut of the pants are great because they are skinny, cropped and fitted, which makes them look really flattering on her.
Since the pants are the dominant statement, she paired them with a white crochet top. Neutral shirts like black and white are an easy way to make colored pants look chic. Her top is very lightweight, which is perfect for those hot summer days. The crochet embroidering adds a nice texture to contrast against the boldness of the pants, which creates a sophisticated vibe.
She kept her shoes simple, yet classy with her nude sandals. Sandals are great to wear during the summer. The short heel makes it easy and comfortable to walk in, while the ankle strap helps keep the look together. Since the jeans are cropped, the ankle strap and details can be seen. The nude color complements her white shirt. Shoes are a great way to control the level of casualness to an outfit.
