As the temperatures continue to rise and our tans become more prominent, it’s time to pack up the knit sweaters and chunky scarves to make room for high-waisted shorts and tank tops. Summer has officially arrived! Whether you are going to the beach, running around the city with friends or hanging out with family, every Fashionista/o aspires to have the perfect summer wardrobe.

Being in New York City this summer, my eyes have been opened to the variety of summer styles sported by fashionable individuals all throughout the city. I spotted this Fashionista walking through Washington Square Park and was immediately drawn to her minimal yet trendy style. What grabbed my attention was the straw floppy black hat. Straw hats are the perfect addition to any outfit during the summer because they give an outfit that extra flare and allow you to stay fashionable while beating the heat. This Fashionista paired her straw hat with high-waisted black shorts and an army green tank top. Last but not least, she topped off her outfit with a delicate, two tiered turquoise necklace.

One Simple Change: This look is perfect for a summer day spent running errands, hanging out with friends and family or exploring the streets of New York City. How do you transition the outfit from day to night? It’s easy! Simply ditch the hat, switch the sandals out for an open toe bootie and replace the fringe bag with a smaller cross-body. With your new look, you’re sure to make heads turn during your night out.
