Summer is officially here and I think the best way to signify the start of summer is to switch up your wardrobe and find those essential pieces that you can style so many different ways. This Fashionista has already started that transition and she did in the best way possible.

Pairing basic pieces to compliment each other in subtle ways is brilliant. My favorite part of this outfit is the versatility as to where she can wear it during the summer months (and beyond.) Whether it’s to a baseball game (peep the hat), brunch, cooler nights on the boardwalk or a busy day of shopping, this Fashionista has it covered. She paired a simple, black T-shirt dress with a denim button-up shirt which can be worn as shown or around her waist. The Steve Madden shoes are perfect for a long day of walking, but can easily be changed for something a little more airy. 

The most important thing about seasonal wardrobes is being able to pull from different seasons and utilize the pieces as much as possible. Her denim shirt can be worn not only in summer because of its light weight, but also in the spring and fall for those chilly nights at Virgnina Commonwealth University. It can even be pulled into winter as a layering piece. This Fashionista really knows how to utilize her clothing to its full potential.

This outfit is perfect for a day with friends but can easily be dressed up by a statement necklace, adding some black pumps and ditching the hat. This outfit is the definition of a transitional piece and each of the elements are perfect for summer.

One Simple Change: Think its too hot for a denim shirt over a top and want to head to the beach for a bonfire night out with the girls? Just tie it around your waist and add some slide sandals for a cooler outfit. This outfit can be changed for many different occasions so have fun!
