As I’m sure many fellow Fashionistas/os can relate to, I characterize summer fashion by being able to throw on a simple outfit that still makes me look like I still have my life together. Summer is all about being laid back and taking it easy, and therefore, I don’t want to spend more than 15 minutes deciding on what I’m going to wear. I’m the kind of person that really values experiencing life to the fullest, and I can’t be out doing that if I’m spending so much time on my outfit or my makeup. Anyway, I’ll have plenty of time to focus more on my fashion choices once the school year rolls around and I have homework to procrastinate. So, for the summer, I need outfits that pull together quickly and allow me to be out having fun as fast as possible!

I really liked the easy simplicity of this Fashionista’s outfit. She told me that recently, she’s been amazed at how many different outfits she can create with her black maxi skirt. She talked about how the skirt instantly dresses up an outfit, but still feels casual and comfortable. And I agree! I can see this outfit being worn for a number of different summer events; whether it be a night out with friends, an afternoon picnic or a Saturday wedding. The versatility of a black skirt combined with a crocheted top, a pair of sandals and some shades makes this outfit perfect for practically any summer occasion.

One Simple Change: As many of us are going back to school later this month and fall is approaching, it’s also important to start considering how to transition your summer wardrobe into your fall wardrobe! Simply throw on an oversized cardigan with this outfit and you’ll be good to go.
