STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Simple Est Très Chic

When I go shopping for summer, I immediately flock to outrageous patterns. Prints and patterns are super fun for summer, but minimalism fashion has taken 2016 by storm. Although this Fashionista’s outfit is all solid colors, she chose unique separates from American Apparel to take the T-shirt and denim pair to the next level.

Basics are a great way to be casual, but still feel fashionable. During the summer months, there are so many activities going on that it’s hard to plan outfits for the entire day. This outfit can go from lunch with a friend to an outdoor evening concert just by adding a cropped jacket. If your summers are jam packed with events, use simple pieces to create a put together look while still being comfortable and ready for anything.

One of my favorite new trends this summer is the midi skirt. The key to pulling off a midi skirt is to play with the proportions of the top and bottom. This Fashionista pulled this off perfectly by pairing the high-waisted skirt with a casual crop top. The extended hem of the skirt and the shorter top gives the outfit balance with a youthful edge.

Some tips to create a chic look with just basics is to add some show stopping accessories. This Fashionista shows that when you add something simple like a sleek Fossil watch and a matching bag, the accessories bring the outfit to life.
