It’s hard to believe that summer is already halfway gone, but don’t worry there is still plenty of time for beach hangs, bonfires and summer bike rides. More importantly, there is still time for summer outfits! It can be hard at times to find an outfit that’s both comfortable in the summer heat and effortlessly stylish, but this Fashionista knows how to put together a cool outfit.

This Fashionista is not only comfortable but keeping a clean conscious with this eco-friendly outfit. Every piece that this Fashionista is wearing was purchased from a local secondhand store or thrift shop. As college students, we are always trying to find ways to save a penny or two and buying thrifted clothes can definitely save you a few dollars. Not to mention you can find totally unique pieces! Buying gently used items is a great way to help the environment by recycling and up-cycling! Don’t live close to a thrift store? No worries, buying from vintage stores on Etsy or eBay is the same idea, and there are plenty of eco-conscious companies making the perfect summer pieces for you too.

What makes this Fashionista’s outfit so unique is how eclectic it is. There’s nothing better than throwing on a pair of denim shorts with a nice tank top and just feeling effortless. What really ties this outfit together is the fun jewelry and leather sandals. Jewelry is a great way to personalize this look and make it more your style. She ties it all together with a cross-body bag that can easily hold everything she needs for a fun filled summer day.

One Simple Change: When your summer night turns into a concert in the city, there’s no time to waste. Try trading out the denim shorts for a pair of great skinny jeans and adding a dressy sandal. It will take your look from day to night with just a few pieces.
