WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

The sun is out, the pools are open and summer is officially here! What better way to celebrate this much needed break from school than by dressing the part (and also maybe tanning poolside)?

This Fashionista clearly took inspiration from the freshly bloomed flowers surrounding us with her bright colored romper. A flowy romper is perfect for the cute and ever so classic sundress look, while also providing insurance against any warm summer breezes. So, no summer activities are off limits! This romper not only features a stand out print, but also a florentine neckline to add some interest. The back also features a draped detail to make a statement even from behind and making it even more perfect for those hot summer months.

This Fashionista chose to pair her romper with simple, black, strappy wedges to keep the attention on her romper. Her choice of wedges over heels keeps the outfit more casual. As for jewelry, she kept it minimal with a small blue necklace. This allowed her to keep with the color scheme of her outfit and still add some bling without distracting from the neckline.

“The chief function of color should be to serve expression” –Henri Matisse

One Simple Change: To make this look more appropriate for casual occasions, such as a barbecue or late night bonfire, simply trade in the wedges for sandals and throw on a jean jacket! Be sure to keep these items simple if your main piece is as loud as this Fashionista’s. (Sunscreen and bug spray optional, but recommended.)
