STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Summer Brights

The key to a solid outfit is not necessarily over the top pieces, but rather the extras that complement some great basics. What I mean is, before you splurge on that 200 dollar floral print jumpsuit that you may or may not wear ever again, why not start with the basics that are already in your closet?

Basics aside, that is not why I think this Fashionista’s outfit is so spot-on. It is her light, summery accessories that really make her drop dead look so great. I mean, look at her hat! The perfect way to complete a look is a simple fedora. It’s often overlooked as a tool to take advantage of. The laid back, beachy vibes that come with a summer hat brighten up her whole ensemble. And technically speaking, it even protects her from the harsh summer rays of the sun. While we’re talking about the sun, her reflecting shades are super light and just unconventional enough to make a big statement. Pairing the edgy glasses with a basic hat gives this Fashionista a personal flair that you won’t find on the runway.

Her vast range of minimalist jewelry along with her light shoulder bag solidify her personal style that’s fit for a summer day around town. From a hand chain (proof that simplicity goes a long way) to her stacked rings and statement necklace, her jewelry choices are fluid and continue to keep her outfit together. Open-toed sandals further solidify her style. Accessorized with an easy purse, her look is complete.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Because I often find myself wearing darker colors year-round, I lighten up my looks with reflective pieces. It’s so easy to incorporate lighter neutrals through a bag or summery hat—and sometimes both!”
