As we end our internships and summer jobs, we prepare for the fall season ahead full of new opportunities and for some of us, a fresh school year. Now is our time to experiment with our existing summer vibes and add in as much flavor as we can during these last few days before things get serious.
This Fashionista is ahead of the game in a stellar transition ensemble that can take her from the heat of the summer season to the chill of the fall. A retro, fire truck red zipper dress features a collar and a smooth, vinyl texture. Vintage dresses like these look good for any season, but its fiery color is what makes it her summer staple.
The key to creating a unique look with a summer dress is to experiment with textures. She plays with texture by layering a printed, mesh henley under the dress for an added twist. With a large, fishnet pattern, this piece keeps with the edginess and attitude of the dress, but adds a layer of warm for the cool fall temperatures ahead.
She pairs this killer combo with her favorite strappy platform sandals in black. Topping it off, she adds black, cat-eyed sunnies, a nearly black lip and pigtails for a fun, edgy summertime look.
Steal her style by playing with textures for yourself. Layer a mesh, textured top underneath a vinyl or leather dress in a standout color. Add in these killer Steve Madden sandals and UNIF sunglasses that were in style all summer. Perfect it with a daring, dark lipstick and cutesy pigtails reminiscent of the 1990s and you’re set for an end of summer statement.
