As summer is winding down, fall is nearly approaching us. It may be September, but we still have a few hot summer days left. When walking on campus the sun can be excruciating, but that did not stop this Fashionista from showing off the perfect black and white look. Shorts are a absolute must; add a crop top to the mix and you have the ultimate summer trend.

This Fashionista really made this outfit her own.  My absolute favorite piece is the paisley printed high-waisted shorts.  They are a summer must have hands down in my book. She paired the shorts with a basic crop top, strappy sandals and a nude purse. Being basic is far from this trend.  Spice up this outfit by adding a statement necklace, but why stop there? Black and white is all the rage, and is always in style. To add more to this look, she added a pink lipstick to brighten up her ensemble.

This outfit is the perfect look for just about anyone.  If it may seem to dressy for you, then get rid of the statement necklace and strappy sandals. Keep the shorts, add a graphic cropped T-shirt with a pair of converse and watch heads turn.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “When you pick a statement piece, such as my necklace, try to build an ensemble around it. Play with patterns to accentuate the piece to help make it the main point in the outfit.”
