ALL IN THE DETAILS: Bohemian Rhapsody

It’s finally August, which means lazy sunny days, warm summer nights and back to school shopping. The beginning of a new year makes everyone want to start fresh, but is there a way to avoid spending a fortune on new clothes and extend the life of your warm weather favorites? How do you make the transition from summer to fall and what are some pieces that can help you get there?

This Fashionista is an expert at relaxed bohemian flair. An off-the-shoulder top and metallic gold sandals are right on-trend. Styled with white skinny jeans and silver jewelry in fun motifs, this outfit is ideal for those end-of-summer days.

Off-the-shoulder tops have been all the rage this summer, spotted on celebs like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Olivia Palermo and on the runways at Céline and Barbara Casasola fall 2015 ready-to-wear. A nod to the current ’70s trend, bare shoulders are a flirty and fun way to subtly show some skin. A paisley print throws in a reference to summer, warm weather and the west. The blue shade livens up the neutral white and the airiness of the top strikes a balance with the slim fit jeans.

There is no better time of the year than August to wear white jeans. The color has a summertime feel, and the length keeps you warm when the temperature drops at night, making them a great choice for summer nights out. They go with everything—a seasonal twist on your basic blue denim staples. Their simplicity allows the feminine top take center stage.

Classier than flip flops and more interesting than flats, gold leather sandals are a perfect choice for summer nights out. Metallics add spice to any outfit, the shine adding texture and depth and you can treat them like a neutral. Silver jewelry ties the shimmery shade together with the rest of the outfit. The arrow shape of the bangle bracelet adds detail.

This outfit is a perfect way to transition from hot summer beach days to cool autumn school days. It would fit right in for both at an outdoor barbeque and a long day of classes. You could wear it to date night or a girl’s night out. You could wear it out to dinner or out running errands.

How To: Pair an off-the-shoulder blouse with white skinny jeans and metallic sandals. Add silver jewelry.
