STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Seasonally Summer Shades

There are so many fun things that you can only do in the summer. One example that comes to mind is going to play a round of putt-putt golf or attend a drive-in movie. I am also a firm believer in changing my diet depending on the season at hand. Summer for example, is a time for me to binge on ice cream and watermelon. The colors of this week’s outfit really reminded me of watermelon and just how fun summer truly is. This Fashionista’s outfit was fun, flirty and reminded me of something even Katy Perry might wear.

Color-blocking has continued to stay in style throughout the years. Designers constantly show color-blocked pieces on the runway. Summer is a great time to try out colors that are out of your comfort zone. I applaud this Fashionista because she showed just how awesome mixing and matching colors could be. In this case, I am talking about all the awesome shades of colors that summer has to offer.

I liked this Fashionista’s outfit for many reasons. She took a simple, pink, skater skirt and transformed it into a high-waisted piece that pulled this outfit together. Tucking in her lace camisole was a smart move to allow her skirt to shine. This Fashionista’s gold flats are simple and do not distract from her clothing pieces. Sticking to a gold theme, she added a long chain tribal necklace.
