ALL IN THE DETAILS: Water You Talkin’ About?

July 16th, 2015 at 2:00am

July is finally here—can you believe it? I’m hoping that this month’s weather is a little more consistent than the last one. Fortunately, my dreams seem to be coming true as July’s off to a gorgeous start with beautiful fashion and lovely people!

This Fashionista was wearing a short watercolor print dress, a light gray cardigan, a pair of brown boots and a pair of black sunglasses. Her neutral, minimal accessories allow her dress to shine and add to the minimalistic nature of her outfit. As corny as it is to say, her no-frills sunglasses frame her face. Her short brown boots and light gray cardigan don’t overshadow or take away from her dress.

The standout piece to her ensemble is her watercolor print dress. Watercolor prints are unexpected, cool and fun—everything that summer should be! Much like the paintings that they are inspired by, watercolors have a mystical fantasy element to them. Watercolor print pieces are also great alternatives for the commitment to bold pieces because many pieces feature diluted or ‘swirled’ bold and cool colors on a neutral background. If you’re at a loss for what watercolor print piece best suits you, Pinterest is a great place for outfit inspiration. I’ve spent hours liking some beautiful watercolor prints that will appear in my own outfits to come!

How To: Ready to be a walking canvas and imitate this Fashionista’s look? Start off with simple accessories, such as a denim jacket or blue cardigan, brown gladiator sandals and round black sunglasses. Watercolor print dresses come in a multitude of lengths, so choose a style that works for you, such as a mini or maxi dress. Cut the tags off the clothes and you’re ready for your runway!
