STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sun And Stripes Forever

In the last few weeks, it has dawned on me that fall semester is just around the corner. Soon the lazy summer days of Netflix binges and wearing flip flops everywhere will be gone. Yes, August is here, and the final weeks of summer are upon us. With fall on the horizon come cooler nights and shorter days, but that doesn’t mean you have to put your skirts and sandals away yet! Summer is still alive and well and it’s a great time to start mixing your favorite fall pieces with staples from your summer wardrobe. As the seasons transition, think long sleeve shirts with mini skirts and summer dresses with leggings. By combining different seasonal pieces together, you can keep a little piece of summer with you all year long.

This Fashionista pairs a three-quarter sleeve striped top (my personal fall favorite!) with a high-waisted denim mini skirt. A black and white striped top is so classically elegant and goes great with any color denim. A three-quarter length sleeve is great because you can wear it all year with any bottom. High-waisted skirts give a bit of retro flair. Pair a vintage tee with a high-waisted denim skirt for a look that is absolutely adorable! The best thing about this Fashionista’s look is that each piece is classic. Fill your closet with timeless pieces and you’ll have to never worry about having to ditch a portion of your wardrobe again!

When it comes to accessories, this Fashionista goes for a sporty-sweet look with a cute Element hat and a vintage ring. Try a hat in a snapback style for a casual-cool look.Throw on a pair of oversized sunglasses and a comfortable wedge shoe and you’re ready to rock the rest of the summer.
