September 9th, 2015 at 2:00am

The start of classes means the start of cute outfits! People are not ready to let go of their summer getups just yet—there are still so many summery styles to admire on campus. Florals, whites and big floppy hats are very popular this season. However, autumn is quickly approaching, which means shorts season is almost over! September marks the end of hot weather, whiteout fashion and sandals.

The Fashionista featured above exemplifies the ultimate summer look. She has a trendy, lightweight, balmy style. Her outfit is perfect as weekend wear with friends, or as a quick getup to class. The focal point of her outfit is the large summer hat. The hat is both useful as a sun protector and it is complementing to her ensemble. Big hats are not only appropriate for beachwear but they are a growing trend for anytime a Fashionista is out and about in the sun.

White is definitely the dominant color in this featured outfit. The Fashionista shown is sporting a white Hollister swing tank and button-up high-wasted white denim shorts. Her sandals are tan and accented with gold braided designs, which complement her skin tone nicely. A big reason why this outfit stuck out to me was because of the way it is accessorized. The Fashionista draws on bold gold tones to accent her apparel. She is wearing a thick, bronze bracelet and a long, thin golden necklace. The necklace reflects the white of her outfit so it is a perfect subtle fit to help draw everything together.

How To: Floppy hats can be paired with almost any summer dress or lightweight, springy outfit. They can be worn to the beach, and bought in a variety of colors. It’s hard to go wrong with a big summer hat! For those of you who are conscious of the UV sun rays, these hats are a definite staple in the summer wardrobe. Golden colored accessories are very versatile as well. They can partner with just about every skin color, and complement many different hair colors. They also are appropriate to wear throughout all seasons.
