WHAT TO WEAR: Day To Night

Alright, guys: We’ve all heard about how fabulous statement jewelry is, and now it’s time to give some love for statement prints. If there is any way to get your outfit to stand out from a crowd, it’s by throwing in a gorgeous, printed design such as the one worn by this Fashionista.

The print is ultimately what caught my eye in the first place. She paired a gorgeous and flowy printed midi skirt with a simple white tank top and white lace espadrille flats that are perfect for the summer season. A thin metallic bracelet added a hint of luxe to the ensemble, while peacock feather earrings paired beautifully with the color of her skirt. This look is bold and eye-catching, yet balanced enough so that it could easily be taken from day to night. You could go from campus to dinner in this outfit and still look fabulous at both. The printed skirt and earrings are perfect for a summer evening out, while the white tank top and flats tone the outfit down and keep things daytime appropriate. Maintaining this balance is a crucial thing to remember when rocking a vibrant print, as it can be easy to go overboard. Although they’re eye-catching, it’s important to not get too out of hand with a vibrant print and approach them with ease instead. Wearing neutral toned pieced alongside a vibrant print is a great way to maintain this balance, which is exactly what this Fashionista did here. Subtlety will take you far when it comes to rocking a vibrant print. Remember: a little goes a long way!

One Simple Change: Believe it or not, summer is starting to wind down! In a mere couple of weeks now, the last days of summer will draw to a close and many schools will begin to start back up once again. To turn this look into the perfect back to school outfit, throw in a large, neutral-toned tote bag. For this outfit, I think this bag in Metallic Taupe would work wonderfully. Not only will you have a convenient area to store your laptop and notebooks, but you’ll maintain the vibrancy of your statement print by keeping your outfit balanced.
