STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Summer Spirit

May 13th, 2015 at 2:00am

With finals week wrapping up here at Indiana University, outfits have been shifting into looks that are more casual since stress levels are higher. However, have you ever heard of the expression “dress well test well?” If you are feeling some study blues take it from this Fashionista and wear something bright and beautiful. Dressing more confident will really help you feel more confident in whatever you are doing in life, and that includes studying or test taking. I spotted this Fashionista because her outfit really stood out against the crowd. Her white skirt and blazer looked amazing while her red, white and blue top really brought some fun-loving summer spirit. Her outfit incorporated multiple spring trends that are transitioning for summer as well.

Asymmetrical skirts are huge for this season. These skirts are sassy and sexy without having to try. The way they are made makes the hem hit the legs in just the right places. Anything that elongates the legs seems like a no-brainer! This skirt first started on the runway and now it has trickled down to every brand and store as one of the must have looks. No matter what your budget is you can find this look for your style and price. H&M has a white one with a little longer skirt. You can rock this trend as well as the midi-length trend all at once. For something a little more expensive but also unique, Topshop has a jacquard flower wrap skirt that will really show this trend off in a different way.

This Fashionista did a great job of wearing white on white in a chic and simple way. The first step for you is finding a white blazer. White blazers are a great staple piece for this summer. The white blazer is similar to a little black dress; once you have found the perfect one you can wear it with basically anything. Throw it on with a great pair of denim or your favorite asymmetrical skirt, the possibilities are endless.
