ALL IN THE DETAILS: Make a Statement

It’s hard to believe summer is nearly over. It seems like only yesterday I was studying for last semester’s finals. Now it’s almost time to gear up for a whole new set of classes. In a month, the leaves will have started changing colors and the air will be brisker. With the end of summer quickly approaching, it’s a bit more difficult than usual to decide what to wear. How do you translate the season’s transition into your look? It’s still too warm outside to start layering up in preparation for fall, but it’s too late in the year to keep rocking just the crop top and short shorts. So what do you do?

You can add layers to your outfit without completely giving up on the last remnants of summer. Try adding jewelry to make your look more complex without adding stuffy layers.This Fashionista has done just that by wearing a statement necklace and tying a shirt around her waist. By layering a statement necklace over a bold top, this Fashionista has added the complexity of a fall outfit to her look without creating an outfit that’ll make her overheat. The shirt tied around her waist takes her look from a cute summer outfit to a stylish transition outfit. Aside from the necklace and the chambray shirt around her waist, this Fashionista’s look is black and white. This makes the shirt and necklace stand out.

How To: Want to piece together a look that’s perfect for the season’s change? Follow this Fashionista and start with a simple summer outfit: a crop top and high-waisted shorts. Tie a shirt around your waist and add a statement necklace. Add a pair of simple sandals, and voila!
