WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

What in the world could possibly discourage you from rocking a pair of silver metallic shorts? Nothing. After all, you have a limitless amount of time to experiment with your individuality because you’re young. This Fashionista rocks a look that is entirely unique; from her gold Sagittarius earrings to her vintage shoes, she surely stands out as someone who dresses for herself and not for others. This is the perfect ensemble for spontaneous weekend outings in the city. It is casual enough for a relaxed outdoor festival and dressy enough for a concert or party (thanks to the shiny metallic shorts). With the speed of life young Americans have grown accustomed to, the look can take you from one of these events to the other without having to change a single thing.

Eye makeup can be a pain in the summer heat. One way to avoid droopy wings and melting mascara is to just not wear much of it! Instead, lather on a bold lip color which can be reapplied a lot easier than a striking cat eye. Using the relaxed makeup look as a starting point for your hairstyle, work the minimal amount of product and heat tools on your hair and let it style itself.

If you’re wondering where to get an ensemble like this, look no further than your nearest thrift store. This Fashionista is a pro when it comes to finding the most unique pieces. It takes a trained eye to spot the potential in certain articles of clothing, but practice makes perfect (and will rarely break the bank). By wearing a vintage item, the odds of you wearing the same outfit as someone else are very slim, thus allowing you to express yourself even more!

One Simple Change: In order to get the most out of your rad wardrobe, formulate a collection of items that work both over the weekend and at your job or internship. This particular look can be made more professional (assuming your workplace appreciates fashion-forward self-expression) by adding tights, a structured jacket, a pair of platform oxfords and/or styling your hair differently.
