Dear desk job, make way for my wardrobe! Fashion’s definition of perfect is a sweet little vacation to savor all of those incredible outfits that you’ve been saving for a special occasion. They may be completely outside the comfort zone of your desk job dress code, but broadening our style horizons is a prime reason to take a holiday. This Fashionista ditched that workaholic life for a weekend to look as vibrant and flowery as summer itself.
The color combinations in this look stand out before everything else. Winter is suitable for washed out shades, but it’s important to channel summer vibes through bright, happy colors. This fashion lover’s floral top perfectly complements her solid orange shorts. However, if you’re not a huge fan of patterns, an off-white blouse in a similar style would look just as classy. Likewise, a blouse in a vibrant, solid color like green or pink would work well with a bright orange pair of shorts.
Here’s the challenge: on a weekend away, you never know where you might end up. The trick is to choose outfits that are casual enough for boutique shopping and sophisticated enough for a garden party. Opt for a pair of shorts like the ones this Fashion maven is wearing rather than denim for maximum versatility. They offer a little more coverage while still being light and summery for hot weather.
There is a lot of great blousing action going on in this outfit. The looseness of the shorts and blouse is so flattering, but needs to be paired with light accessories. This Fashionista has chosen a thin pearl necklace and a little handbag. They give the look a bit of glitz without overpowering it. A pair of simple silver hoop earrings instead of pearls would have the same classic appeal. Combine the jewelry with a big, fun pair of sunglasses and you’re ready to go, wherever that is.
One Simple Change: If you have to take this look out at night, substituting the sandals with a pair of flats is definitely a good idea. Try patent leather flats in cream or black to help this lovely look make a smooth transition from day to night. Throw on a beige leather jacket or shawl and you’re set for a spontaneous getaway evening.
