WHAT TO WEAR: Celebration

Ahhhhh. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the air is hot…like really hot. It’s safe to say that summer has finally moved in, leaving last semester’s worries in the dust. Now that school is out, many of us are ushering in the celebratory season for college graduations (and even high school and elementary school graduations for those of us with younger siblings and friends!). Questions hang in the air from relatives of what your plans for post-grad might be, but perhaps the biggest question of all is what to wear to the party?

With the hot weather and the typical relaxed, family environment that many graduation parties have, it’s essential to rock an adorable, laid back outfit to fit in with the atmosphere! This Fashionista does that perfectly, rocking a pair of patterned drawstring slacks with a chic black tulip-backed T-shirt. She finishes of this look with a pair of Tory Burch sandals—an essential for the perfect summertime wardrobe! This Fashionista’s outfit is perfect for the occasion: with light fabric and an airy breeze from the tulip-back, this outfit is how this Fashionista stays cool when she’s out in the summer heat!

Want to replicate this look? Find a pant made of a light thin fabric, like cotton, with a gorgeous floral pattern. Also, a pair of black sandals is always the perfect way to top off any outfit – definitely a wardrobe piece to invest in!
