Summer is in full swing at UC Davis, and the heat wave won’t quit. Unlike my hometown in the Bay Area, where the weather is consistently mild, the city of Davis boasts extreme seasons. Our winters are chilly, and the summers are unbearably hot. Thus, with any Davis Fashionista/o, you’ll find a closet mixed with shorts and coats galore. Don’t let your warm attire collect dust in the back of your closet. Instead, incorporate it into your summer wardrobe like this Fashionista!

Take note of the seemingly effortless look that’s crafted here. This Fashionista took a black halter tank top, tied it up and created the perfect DIY crop top. To add some flair, she paired them accordingly with lace trimmed shorts. When you’re going to be out from dusk until dawn this summer, throw on a relaxed button-up for a sense of structure and comfort. You’ll create a laid back look by tying the blouse around your waist when you’re feeling too warm.

Ever catch yourself wearing the wrong pair of shoes when spontaneous plans happen? Been there, done that. Don’t let improper footwear keep you from the fun this summer, so make sure to complete your look with canvas sneakers or booties. Even though sandals are a no-brainer for summer style, you can still impeccably rock a pair of booties like this Fashionista. In an instant, your outfit will exude streetwear vibes and keep you on the move.

One Simple Change: To change for a girl’s night out, swap the outer blouse with a maxi cardigan and statement necklace to channel a casual-chic look.
