Summer is truly here and that means so are all the fun summer activities like festivals, concerts, parties and nights in the nearest city with friends. Bringing your fashion A-game to all these events is crucial, so why not experiment with new items and take a risk here and there.
This year Anthony Vaccarello‘s fall 2016 collection caught my eye because almost every piece is black! Especially when he paired the mini, leggy, leather skirts with black boots I knew I had to give it a shot. I chose to step out of my comfort zone a bit with this fringe faux leather skirt. They are a hip happening trend and it’s awesome. There is a great article on WhoWhatWear that proves how versatile they are and gives a bit more insight to the proper way of styling them. With a leather skirt, what shoes go with it better than a pair of super comfortable black leather combat boots. I dressed the look down just a little whereas a pair of black pumps would dress it up. So to say the least, this boot-skirt combination was a no brainer. Personally, black is my go-to color because it matches nearly everything, never goes out of style and can be worn year round.
Since it is in fact summer I chose to add a pop of color with this teal, deep v-neck tank top. It’s super comfy and can be dressed up with this skirt or dressed down with jeans and sneakers.
I’ve never been too big on accessories since I usually am a minimalist when it comes to my personal style, but I’ve decided to step up my game at least with this outfit and when I saw this snake bracelet at Francesca’s I knew it would be a good starting point. Then, I found these chunky jewel rings and knew I just had to get them as well. Then of course to go even further I found these rad cat-eye sunnies that just look fabulous with anything making joggers and a tank top fashionable. One thing is for sure, any photo that comes out of our popular celebrities they are all rocking an amazing pair of sunglasses. To top it off I threw on two small gold choker necklaces just for an extra touch on top, which is also something that can be worn with almost anything. Take a risk this summer and wear something new, something bold and something to show off you.
