WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

Ah, sweet summertime. Summer is often a favorite season for Fashionistas due to the warm weather, bright sun and the essence of pure freedom. As the sun gets hotter, clothing tends to get shorter. This outfit perfectly demonstrates how to combine class, fun and floral into the ideal summer getup. There is a fine line when purchasing summer clothing between chic and inappropriate. This Fashionista shows us how it’s done right.

Dressed in an airy floral skirt, this Fashionista demonstrates femininity and fun. Her bold red crop top is the perfect length—not exposing too much skin while still edgy enough to be a cool summer crop top. The mix of metallics in this Fashionista’s bangle collection add texture and tie into the mixture of colors in the skirt. Purple nails pack a punch—adding a bright accent to the overall feminine, soft look. Beach-inspired waves and minimal makeup complete this Fashionista’s getup and balance out the vivid colors of her outfit.

As seasons change, trends keep evolving. However, a few things will never go out of style: simple hair and makeup, bold colors, and killer confidence. One of the things I love most about this outfit is how poised this Fashionista is while wearing it. After all, confidence is the most affordable and perhaps most important accessory.

One Simple Change: Want to reuse these pieces when the summer weather has gone away? Simply add light tights, a loose cardigan and swap the wedges for booties and you have a fall outfit perfect for a stroll around campus or night out with the girls.
