Starting college finals, moving out of the dorms and that sizzling heat beating down on your shoulders. All can only add up to one thing: sweet summertime (and us, Style Gurus know you are more than ready for it)! But is the wardrobe in your closet ready? If not, look no more for the “most wanted” essentials of summer. This summer it is all about having a mix of punk and spunk. What could describe “punk and spunk” better than skulls and scallops? Skulls and scallops are taking the fashion world by storm with all their various appearances on accessories, tops, shorts and even undergarments. Fellow Fashionistas grab em’ while they are hot!
This summer-ready Fashionista chose to wear an electric blue scallop top with an open back from Apricot Lane, as her ever so trendy statement piece. She complimented the open back portion of her top with a neutral bandeau to hide her bra back. By adding a bandeau, it kept her look classy and racy, by still allowing the bandeau to show skin. We all know showing skin=summer! The front and back of this fiery yet sophisticated top are both sweetly scalloped with waves of blue. This feature allows the top to contain a constant guileless theme. She also wore a pair of the popular high-waisted shorts. Her loose flowing top, also from Apricot Lane covers these pure white high-waisted shorts. The white color of the shorts gives her look a fresh and simple touch to it. Moving down her summery ensemble are her fabulous cheetah printed wedges by Buckle. These feisty animal print open toes are the perfect addition to this unadorned outfit.
Tip: A fierce animal print is always a fun accumulation to neural or one-toned attire.
The Fashionista completed the look with two fanciful accessories. The chic skull diamond earrings and assorted electric blue and gold bracelets, both from Apricot Lane. Skulls are the crazy way to give your outfit some audaciousness and boldness. These tiny skull earrings on this Fashionista surely do just that to her humble scalloped outfit. Skull patterned shirts and accessories are a great conversation starters and eye-poppers.
This summer keep in mind the fab fashion staples of skulls and scallops to make your summer apparel as rockin’ and sexy as possible!
