While the runways and fashion blogs are all over color blocking, leave it to Georgetown students to opt for an incredibly bold monochromatic look. Today’s Fashionista was spotted from a great distance with her orange platform sandals and bright skirt.
Casual, but exciting, platform sandals takes this Fashionista’s outfit to a level above the rest. Her mother found the footwear in a trendy vintage boutique in Baltimore. Platform sandals are popular right now, but finding one in a tangerine hue is a little tricky. Wedged espadrilles, like this Franco Sarto pair, offer a similar appearance.
Apropos to the height of her sandals, this Fashionista wears a comfortable high waisted skirt in a similar shade. Perfect for an early summer afternoon, she paired it with a casual t-shirt. As to not take away, or go overboard on the orange, she sticks to neutral tan and bone for the rest of her accessories.
This Fashionista may be into clothes the color of the sun, but she is wary of actual rays. She mentioned that she threw on a slouchy lightweight cardigan to protect her shoulders for an afternoon of lounging on the lawn with friends. Her Coach crossbody purse finishes off the look.
To pull off a similar singular color outfit, take this Fashionista’s style advice. Pick a bold color, such as orange, yellow, and red and choose a couple key pieces in that shade. Complete the outfit by balancing the bright color scheme with low-key neutrals.
