Unless you are lucky enough to be a beach babe all summer long, a barely-there bikini is only appropriate when you are lounging poolside or catching waves. Just because the thermostat is in the triple digits does not mean that you have to compromise your summer style. Plus, there are only a few more weeks left to showcase your sundresses and flowy skirts on campus.
Instead of layering on the clothes, Natalie, a volunteer at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Miami, piled on the jewelry. She paired a loose-fitting cream top with a lightweight skirt; bandage dresses are not fit for 100-degree weather. Her sparkle threaded drape-neck shirt glistened in the sun (Literally!), but the thin material helped keep her cool in the heat.
A cobalt blue and gold statement necklace was the focus of her outfit while oversized Kate Spade earrings and an assortment of J.Crew bangles helped pull her look together. Starting with a basic outfit, then adding accessories is a simple way to completely transform an ensemble. A bold statement necklace adds character to an otherwise boring outfit.
For a more casual look, start with a plain, solid colored cotton shirt and a cute pair of shorts. Be sure to stand out by completing the outfit with a bright necklace. Heading to a more formal event? Draw attention to your neckline by wearing a statement piece with a little black dress and strappy heels. It does not matter whether you are sitting in History 101 or hitting the town with friends, accessorize with flair, and you will be the ultimate Fashionista.
