The end of July is slowly but surely creeping up on us Fashionista/os. That means the summer heat waves are coming at us with a vengeance. The time to transition from light spring jackets, to tank tops and sandals is upon us.  As we take our various trips to our summertime getaways and drink our beers and mimosas on the front porches of our run-down college pads, we need to be geared up to face the scorching hot summer temperatures. This Fashionisto embraced the summer heat with confidence and passion.  He effortlessly displayed his breezy summer wardrobe by consistently utilizing the cooler color palate of shades of light blues and greens.

There is a chilling sense of sleek that comes with this Fashionisto’s summer style.  The bold blue and green striped shirt from ASOS paired with his light-wash Hollister jeans are the perfect introduction to a cool and relaxed summer look (and did I mention that the jeans are DIY distressed?). The sunglasses that are featured in this look are courtesy of the Mizzou Book Store. Here at Mizzou, we really like to keep fashion in the family. Last but not least, these sandals from ALDO add the perfect touch to this outfit. They make the look whole, but also do not distract from the focal points of the outfit.

One Simple Change: Just finished with an exhausting day of soaking up the sun and partying with friends? This look can be transitioned into nighttime apparel by switching out the ripped jeans for a crisp, dark wash denim.
