ALL IN THE DETAILS: Stylish Stripes

I often find it challenging to put together preppy, practical outfits during the summer season. It is easy to throw on your favorite blazer, fitted pants and comfortable flats during every other season. But summer calls for flowy dresses, denim shorts and tank tops. Incorporating your preppy style with the comfort and sensibility of this season can be difficult. That’s why I’m obsessed with this Fashionista’s outfit! She looks girly and preppy, but also ready to head over to brunch at the country club with her family or a picnic in the park with friends.

This Fashionista is doing everything right. Her outfit is perfect for any summer occasion that requires a bit of dressing up. She is rocking her personal, preppy style without wearing the blazer that we’ve all seen countless times. Her white, flowy shirt is great during the heat of the summer. The light color and loose fit will keep her comfortable and cool. She chose to wear a pair of simple brown wedges, which keeps the look minimalistic while adding to her preppy style. Accessory wise, this Fashionista only chose to wear simple earrings. The light pink studs and pearls keep the look sophisticated and elegant. Finally, the unique detail of this Fashionista’s look that I absolutely love are her striped shorts. The horizontal, multi-colored stripes are the only pop of color of her outfit, making her shorts the stand out piece. Also, the striped design puts an emphasis on this Fashionista’s personal girly and preppy style.
