WHAT TO WEAR: Celebration

September 11th, 2015 at 2:00am

Out of all the days in the year, there is one when it’s most important to look your best—your birthday. The day is commonly filled with lots of pictures and friends, so it makes sense that everyone wants to be looking and feeling their best. This Fashionisto celebrated his end-of-the-summer birthday by having friends and family over for an evening of barbecuing and outdoor fun and his outfit reflected that “last hurrah of the summer” vibe.

For celebrations, like outdoor birthday parties, this Fashionisto nailed his look. A T-shirt with a summery pattern of palm trees or sailboats combined with statement sunglasses are a must to complete this look. Both of these pieces emphasize that although the summer has almost come to a close, it’s not over yet and there’s still plenty of time left to enjoy the warmth. To really personalize this outfit, exchange the laces on your favorite pair of shoes for a fun and colorful twist on a classic look. This Fashionisto opted for light blue laces to complement his T-shirt, but any bright color will make the shoes pop.

Big birthday events can get stressful beyond the guest list, but don’t let what you wear be another thing to worry about! 

One Simple Change: Want to switch this look from day to night? Lose the shades and switch out the shorts for dark wash denim for a look that’s perfect for a night out. If you’re really feeling fancy, add a summery watch, like this one from Urban Outfitters, to stick with the tropical vibe in a very subtle way.
