WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

Summer: a time to let the stress that comes along with being a college student melt away. It’s also the perfect time to be a little adventurous and to try something new and worthwhile on your days off. From spending time soaking up the sun to dining out at a new restaurant to going on a road trip with your best friends, there are endless reasons why college students crave summer all year long.

While checking off experiences from your bucket list becomes second nature as the summer sets in, finding an outfit to accompany all of those adventures presents quite the challenge. Enter: this Fashionista. Her outfit has you covered for just about any occasion.

Starting with a crochet maxi dress, this Fashionista’s outfit is surprisingly versatile. The maxi’s simple silhouette and sheer cutouts which include the sleeves and hemline, make it the perfect go-to summer dress. And, who can complain when an outfit is practically pulled together after just one piece? From here, she throws on her lace-up gladiator sandals, foolproof for any location her adventures may lead her.

To balance out the bohemian vibes of this outfit and make it her own, this Fashionista adds a black Michael Kors studded bag. Paired with her mirrored sunglasses and silver jewelry, each of her accessories add toughness and an overall cool vibe to her look. The styling is unexpected, yet versatile. This look could easily turn heads in the heart of a big city like Chicago or act as a laid-back look for a day exploring a charming little town.

When it comes to summer, every moment feels precious. Go on adventures, be bold and take inspiration from this Fashionista. Wear something that can take you from one new experience to the next, seamlessly.

One Simple Change: Turn this outfit into a flawless girl’s night out look by adding a black leather jacket and swapping the shoes for a pair of wedges. Then, add a bold lip color and enjoy the night.
