This one is for the ladies and gents who thrive in black, white and neutral colors; when it comes to color, diving into navy blue or forest green is considered “risky.” In the summer, when Fashionistas and Fashionistos walk around as rays of sunshine in yellow and rainbows of bright colors, wearing all black is still the best, but there’s no shame is adding some color to your game. Doing so with accessories and makeup can be cheap, easy and add that extra “oomph” to your look.
This Fashionista takes her neutrals up a notch with pattern and a pop of color. Her striped dress is a great foundation for her outfit, and the swing dress fit is super comfortable and easy to wear! Having a black sweater nearby keeps her cozy in the chilly summer Wisconsin evenings. Her gladiator sandals are not only trendy, but are the perfect height for going out with your pals and enjoying your night!
The statement of the outfit, her necklace, isn’t too big our gaudy; it’s just enough to catch a couple of second glances. To top it all off, her lipstick matches the red in her necklace perfectly, which ties the whole look together.
How To: Many of the elements of this outfit are things you can find in your closet already. Dig out your old statement necklaces (or this one, here) and any cute LBD, extra points if it’s patterned!. Want to switch it up a bit? Wear statement stud earrings, mix metal and gem rings or add a colorful clutch. Paired with cute sandals or heels, and you’ve got yourself a cute pop of color look! Let the selfies commence!
