WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

July 6th, 2015 at 2:10am

Nothing screams summer quite like a pair of loose, patterned pants. On top of being visually interesting, they are comfortable and carefree. Usually, they are cotton or silk, as well as thin enough to combat the dog days of summer. Something with a little flare takes us back to the ‘70s, a time period in vogue as of late.

This Fashionista has tucked in a simple black tank top into a pair of black and white, patterned and wide-legged pants. For shoes, she is wearing tan leather boots. She has added a long, tablet necklace and long earrings by Manhattan-based jewelry artist Natalie Frigo from Poppy in Columbia, MO. The gold jewelry adds to the summery feel of her outfit, and her loose, wavy hair completes the look.

This Fashioista’s outfit is one that is perfect for the weekend. It is relaxed, yet stylish. One could wear an outfit like this out running errands, shopping or to lunch with friends. It is a little bohemian without the fuss.

One Simple Change: Take this look from day to night by switching out a pair of boots or sandals for a pair of platform heels. Topshop has a lot of good ones right now. Opt for a silk tank top or cropped top to look more dressed-up. For makeup, add a little highlighter above your cheekbones and put a berry-colored stain on your lips. I really like Bobbi Brown’s creamy lipstick formula. It is sheer and long lasting. The jewelry can stay right where it is.
