It’s finally here! The moment we have all been waiting for… summer! With school out, summer is the ultimate time for rest and relaxation. Ditch the pants and jackets and bring out the shorts and swimsuits because it is going to be a hot one!

Whether you’re lounging by the pool or going out to lunch with friends, the months of June and July are the perfect time to dress bright and vibrant. Choosing warm colors goes hand-in-hand with the warm weather and makes your bronzed tan stand out. It is a win-win in many ways!

This Fashionista dressed perfectly for a hot summer day. She kept it casual by going with vibrantly colored shorts and pairing them with a simple blue V-neck. By sticking to two main colors, she kept her look effortless yet still very bold! To tie the outfit together, this Fashionista kept it classy with gold accent jewelry and nude sandals. If you’re looking to make a statement, try sticking to one pop of print in your look, like this Fashionista illustrated, to keep everything cohesive.

One Simple Change: To transform this look from a daily summer look to girl’s night out look, trade in the nude sandals for a pair of nude wedges. Then, throw on a light jean jacket or simple blazer to make the look more suitable for nightlife.  Lastly, let your hair down and ditch the ponytail for a more classic hairstyle. And there you have it—an easy way to take your look from day to night in just a few simple steps!
