Just because the weather is sweltering hot and you’re gasping for air doesn’t mean that you can throw fashion to the wayside. I know, I know that does sound a little extreme, but this Fashionista is sporting one of the biggest fashion trends this summer; high-waisted shorts. I think we all can agree that although we love the trend, there is a fine line between high-waisted shorts looking cute and erring on the side of scandalous.
The dark wash of the shorts pops perfectly against the crisp white sleeveless shirt she’s wearing. Not to mention paired together they complement her golden tan she’s been working on all summer. The fact that the shorts are a darker wash and don’t have any distressing in them, give the look a more sophisticated and age appropriate vibe. We love the fact that this Fashionista layered a bold statement necklace under her collar. Statement necklaces are my favorite way to spice up an ordinarily basic outfit, on a college students budget. You can find great statement necklaces for inexpensive prices at stores like Forever 21, Charlotte Russe or Etsy. She pairs the rest of the outfit by stacking gold bangles to bring out the gold buttons in the shirt, a great pair of tribal woven wedges and an owl printed purse. This little woodland creature gives a touch of youthfulness, something every girl in her early twenties needs.
One Simple Change: Swap out the wedges for en edgy pair of combat boots, add tights and a chunky knit cardigan for an easy way to transition this outfit for fall.
