Now that we’ve ditched the textbooks and early morning classes for a few months, it’s time to use our free time to do the things we really want to do: yes, ladies I’m talking brunch! I mean what is better than digging into an Instagram-worthy meal of red velvet pancakes on a Sunday afternoon meal with the girls? Oh I know—doing so in style with a killer outfit!

This summer, you can’t go wrong pairing your favorite white tank top with any variety of bottoms. This trendy Fashionista kicks off her look with a staple halter tank paired with a maxi skirt, creating an effortless ensemble for the season! The patterned maxi skirt is a perfect compliment to the simple top. It’s lightweight and breathable material makes it appropriate for the hot summer weather, and the elastic band on the waist allows for that extra room for the inevitable brunch food baby! (Yes- that means no discreet unzipping of the skinny jeans will be taking place under the table.)

This Fashionista accessorized with a Fossil watch, layered pendant necklaces and a pair of aviator sunglasses from Ray Bans. The simple addition of a navy bralette introduces a pop of color and touch of personality to the look, while tying in the dark shades from the skirt. This outfit is a stellar example of bringing staple basic wardrobe pieces to life with accessories and bold prints.

One Simple Change: This look can easily be transitioned from brunch on a hot summer afternoon to a busy day of classes in the fall. Throw on a denim jacket and a stylish backpack to make your outfit school-ready.
