STYLE ADVICE: Keepin' It Cool

STYLE ADVICE: Keepin' It Cool

As summer showers and sunny days become frequent happenings, Fashionistas everywhere prepare for these spontaneous months. “Spring cleaning” takes full effect, and this Fashionista shows us what spring staples you don’t want to throw out.

This Fashionista nails the cool-girl, laid back vibe with embroidery and neutral colored clothing. To start off the outfit, a neutral top—preferably tan—is the perfect base to build on. Since the weather in Florida is pretty unpredictable during these months, you want to get a T-shirt that is light and airy. Another year-round staple that works for day or night is denim. I’m the kind of girl that lives in her skinny jeans and denim shorts, and this Fashionista is after my own heart. When buying anything denim, make sure it’s not coarse and has a little stretch—you want to be able to move in them and be comfortable, not suffocating. I also love how this Fashionista rolled the bottom of her jeans to create a boyfriend, more relaxed, look.

Embroidery is something that makes any look complete, and this Fashionista’s jacket is calling my name! A statement jacket adds that bit of edge to any outfit and adds a personal flair that is all your own. This Fashionista’s jacket was purchased at Urban Outfitters, the brand known for providing “it” pieces for any Fashionista’s closet. If you’re too busy to hit the mall, get more bang for your buck by bedazzling or decorating your own jacket. To complete the outfit, this Fashionista wears nude heels. With a back strap, and a small heel, these shoes are perfect for day-wear and campus walking. And this Fashionista doesn’t leave anywhere without her clear frames—and you don’t need to have prescription eye-wear to wear these bad boys!

So before you toss and buy, search your wardrobe for these fashion forward pieces that are timeless and certain to make a statement for any season!
