Summertime is all about relaxing and hanging out with friends before it’s back to the books and spending long nights in the library. There is nothing better than catching up with old friends and introducing them to your new ones before you all go your separate ways in the fall. There are endless possibilities for summer nights so it’s important to dress for multiple occasions. I spotted this Fashionista in Dallas, Pennsylvania, ready for a night out.
It’s not everyday that I spot a college student sporting loose, wide leg pants, so this was a pleasant surprise. Check out these harem pants from Free People for a similar look. She paired her wildly printed pants with a simple, fitted white tank. The plain top was a great choice, giving the pants all the attention. She slid on a pair of cream wedges which lengthened her legs and gave her a leaner look. The wedges gave her ensemble a more sophisticated feel. Find a similar pair from Steve Madden at DSW.
To complete her look, she accessorized with fun pieces. She draped a colored feather necklace around her neck, which complemented her pants, and added a ring and large cream watch. The watch went perfectly with her outfit and really tied in the wedges. For a similar style, check out this Michael Kors watch.
I suggest always having a polished outfit ready for a night out with friends. While so many college students opt for a pair of jean shorts and tee for an average summer evening, it’s important to stand out. Why fit in with the crowd when you have all of these awesome pieces in your closet ready to show off?
One Simple Change: To make this outfit more casual, and library ready for when school starts back up, swap the platform wedges for a pair of gold sandals. Throw on a cardigan, like this one from J.Crew, to prepare for the air conditioned rooms and you’re ready to go.
