With summer quickly approaching, it is safe to say that summer attire can be seen pretty much everywhere. The long New England winter is gone (for now), and summer is ready to come and give us some much-needed warm weather. It is finally time to put away the chunky scarves and riding boots, and bring out the patterned shorts and sandals! This Fashionista is a perfect example of what casual summer wear looks like, along with some vibrant accents.

Sporting patterned shorts from Forever 21, this Fashionista proves that it does not take much to complete the rest of her outfit. When wearing patterned shorts or any patterned article of clothing for that matter, it is important to balance out the outfit with a solid piece, which this Fashionista did perfectly. The patterned shorts are simply paired with a basic white T-shirt, which allows the shorts to take center stage. The outfit is finished off with a pair of Jack Rogers sandals, as well as a watch and Ray-Ban sunglasses. This outfit is perfect for summer weather since it is lightweight and breathable for those hot days, but it is also stylish because of the accessories and the patterned shorts. This outfit perfectly exemplifies what it means to dress cute but comfortably in the summer.

One Simple Change: Want to dress up this look a little bit for a night out at your favorite restaurant? Add a statement necklace as well as a cardigan for those chilly summer nights, and your look will be sure to keep you looking and feeling like a Fashionista.
