ALL IN THE DETAILS: Arm Candy

Summer has officially begun! That means it’s time to break out the bikinis and short shorts. The only damper on this summertime fun is the realization that many of us are still enrolled in classes. No matter—you can still look cute and stylish strutting across your campus by finding the perfect combination of trends that are appropriate for class. This Fashionista did just that!

She layers a loose pale pink muscle tank with a silver metallic neck accent and a girly lace bandeau. The bandeau adds the perfect delicate touch to this ensemble, paired with high-waisted jean shorts (DIY local thrift shop) and nude flats. The neutral color scheme is perfect for a laid back school outfit.

What really caught my attention was the use of her accessories! She carries a black and white purse from ALDO, furthering the neutral color scheme. What stands out the most is her mix of bracelets and a small Marc Jacobs watch. The color from the neon pink watch adds a subtle pop to the outfit. This Fashionista mixes it with a variety of gold and silver Alex and Ani bangles. This company creates assorted eco-conscious jewelry that’s made in America. Each bangle has a different meaning; for example, this Fashionista’s represented her sorority and zodiac sign. The tank, shorts and purse are all very neutral colors, with added bling from the arm candy.

How To: If you aren’t a master DIY-er like this Fashionista, luckily for you high waisted shorts are not in short supply. With the shorts and a neutral top, the look can be replicated with simple layering of assorted bangles and simple jewelry.
