With summer in high gear and no more 8:00 a.m. classes, college students everywhere are ready to kick back and enjoy some sun, friends and fun! However, with the last few weeks of college being bombarded with studying, research papers and projects, it is easy to become content with sweatshirts and sweatpants as the outfit of choice. However, now that school is over and summer is finally in session it is the perfect time to break away from this comfortable but less than rad look into something that shows off your own unique and personal style. This Fashionista, who looks as though she was taken out of this month’s editorial of Vogue, isn’t letting the hangover of finals mess with her summer vibes.
Effortlessly combining several trends from this season, this Fashionista is bringing high-end to downtown Madison. The white, off-the-shoulder top is from an Australian-based retail website, and is definitely worth the international shipping. As for the Sweet Wanderer floral shorts, these are not only a great staple but also add color to the outfit. The accessories, apparent yet tasteful, finish the outfit and make it fitting for any brunch occasion. Earrings are the perfect way to accessorize any outfit, specifically on this Fashionista; the gold bar earrings from LuLu’s give the outfit elegance with the Urban Outfitters double-pierced earrings giving the outfit more of a hipster edge. Speaking of a hipster edge, the sunglasses from Urban Outfitters are perfectly stylish and chic as well as practical. Finishing the outfit with a heeled sandal from LuLu’s dresses the outfit up, while still keeping it casual and appropriate for brunch. There is no doubt that this Fashionista is ready to jump-start the summer in style!
One Simple Change: Just got done with brunch and want to hit the mall to run errands but feel too dressed up? Swap out the patterned floral shorts for some high-waisted denim shorts. Not only will they complement the outfit, they will also dress it down and give the outfit a more casual look.
