You may not believe it but here in Miami there’s no sign of winter. The birds are still chirping, the sun is shining giving off an average temp of 75 degrees consistently and it only rains once every week or so. To say the least living in Miami in February is much more appealing than New York right now. The downside of this tropical weather luxury is the humidity. It makes curly hair frizzy and sweating through your clothes a daily regime. One of the best ways to avoid spending the day covered in that nasty bodily fluid is knowing how to dress for the occasion.
This week’s Fashionista made a simple shorts and T-shirt ensemble artistically interesting by mixing and matching prints. Her baggy tribal print shirt is the perfect solution to dress weather appropriate while showcasing your style. You can easily achieve this look by raiding your local Goodwill for an oversized, patterned, button-down or with this acid wash aztec T-shirt from ASOS. She balanced her loud shirt and bleach-dyed shorts by taking a tip from the grunge era and tying a long-sleeve, plaid button-down around her waist. If you want to try this look, but you’re nervous about mixing so many different patterns, make things simple by focusing on one printed piece such as this Donatella skirt from Pixie Market.
One Simple Change: One quick change to make this outfit go from day to casual date night is by switching out the shorts for a maxi skirt like this NASTY GAL sheer lace paneled one, which is light enough to handle any sort of heat wave coming your way.
