When you think of August, you think of the heat. You also remember that August is like the Sunday of summer. These two things can make things a little tricky when deciding on an outfit. Dealing with the heat alone makes it hard to wear certain things. Being comfortable is a huge part of my outfit choices. Making it look like you put in a lot of effort, while still being comfortable, is the hard part. While August truly is the Sunday of summer, we also have to remember that autumn is on its way.
My style advice is to make the fashion transition from summer to autumn smooth. Many of us make the mistake of whipping out the riding boots, jeans and sweaters right away when school starts. This Fashionista rocks a perfect August color: golden yellow, while still being comfortable and dressing for the August heat. This golden color is perfect for summer and autumn, which means she can rock this look during any month of summer or autumn.
Since she is wearing such a bright color, she chooses to make her accessories to be a little more earth-toned. Her black sandals, nude cross-body bag and nude lipstick don’t take away from her bright dress, but also are just enough to still make her outfit complete. A fashion mistake that is often made is wearing too many bright showy colors at once. Sometimes it works, but many times it doesn’t. Your outfit will be more eye catching with once bright part of your outfit, followed by other earthy tones.
This Fashionista also adds her own personality to her outfit, which is very important when deciding what to wear in any circumstance. Her vintage ring and hand-made bracelet are her own personal and unique touch to her outfit, while still making it all come together and making her accessories match.
This Fashionista was able to find something in this golden color from Forever 21. Here you can find plenty of colors that work for autumn and summer. Another thing you can add to your outfit, like this Fashionista did, is a solid colored pair of sandals. Like I said, I am all about comfort, so I would go with a pair of Birkenstocks for my shoe choice with this outfit. To add accessories, you can find rings or other jewelry almost anywhere. My favorite place to look for purses is Target. They always have so many options for colors and sizes.
What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK?: When I chose this outfit, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t too hot and that I was comfortable. Those are the two biggest fashion obstacles that I have in the summertime. Fall is my favorite time of year, but since we aren’t there yet, I was able to wear fall colors that also allow me to be cool and comfortable. My plain colored accessories help make my outfit stand out and make my outfit come together.
