WHAT TO WEAR: Summer Parties

It’s that last summer barbecue and the humidity in New York is just starting to die down. Your summer classes and internships are over, and it’s that lovely break in-between responsibilities before classes start up again for the fall semester. This Fashionista embraced these last few weeks of summer parties with an absolutely adorable matching set.

The ’70s trend that keeps making a comeback, a matching set is an easy way to stand out in the crowd. Now all of us fashionistas know that this trend started coming back around summer 2015, but it continues to be a go to super chic outfit. I love matching sets because they are so simple, yet still make a bold statement. This fashionista chose to wear a bright and colorful patterned set, but this trend can be carried into the fall season easily by switching up the colors to darker shades (burgundy, mustard, olive, etc.). Furthermore, don’t fret when the weather starts to cool down, you can find this trend as a pant and crop top combo as well! Overall, this look is perfect those last summer get-togethers. Show off your tan, and go for an outfit that’s already made for you.

In addition to her floral set, this fashionista is also rocking reflective Quay sunglasses, a jean jacket for when the evening gets chilly and a black kate spade cross-body. My favorite part of this outfit, though, is her naturally curly hair that gives this summer look the perfect funky touch. Embrace that humidity girl.

Another plus to matching sets is the ability to mix and match. Imagine rocking this bold crop top with a solid black skirt or vice versa. You have yourself an entirely different look. Additionally, try swapping this floral pattern for a solid color and you have yourself a perfect day to night look. Nothing beats a matching black set for a girls night out!
