ALL IN THE DETAILS: Sunny, Striped and Fun

Hot days are taking over Charlottesville and summer classes have finally started. As a result, dresses and sunglasses are taking over grounds and I’m loving it! I ran into this adorable Fashionista and immediately loved her outfit; I could imagine myself in everything she was wearing and the little details in her outfit stood out.

The most obvious piece of her outfit, and what caught my eye first, was her striped, short-sleeved dress. The best feature of a striped dress is that it’s extremely versatile and comfortable. This Fashionista had the right idea when she picked a dress with a curved hemline. Striped dresses can feel monotonous with the wrong silhouette, but hers appeared fun and flirty just through a change in the shape. This detail on the dress completely changed her outfit and it being paired with the right accessories finished it off nicely.

Running with the comfort theme, she paired her dress with unique sliders. The beige suede flats had silver buckles and crossed straps. She also wore some yellow sunglasses, that seemed like they were pulled straight out of a vintage Vogue, and simple silver chains for jewelry. Then, instead of a backpack, she used a black large tote with a peekaboo green lining. Altogether, the sunglasses, which also boasted a frosted finish, framed her face and worked well with her beautiful, curly updo. While the chains, tote and shoes equally worked with her outfit to keep everything chic and on trend.

I loved the way this Fashionista looked cute and put-together while walking around grounds. It just goes to show that even hemlines can make any outfit look entirely different and fashionable.
