WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

August is here, and this only means one thing: we’ve only got a couple of weeks left before fall semester kicks in. The end of summer is always bittersweet. Yes, fall wardrobe shopping is definitely a blast. Sure, securing that dream internship for the coming semester is absolutely exciting. But the first few weeks of August signify the end of lazy days by the pool or at the beach, carefree summer nights and open toed shoes (for most of us anyway). Not to worry! There are still a couple of weekends left to sneak in a few more beach trips, spa getaways, hiking adventures, shopping trips, food festivals, concerts or even one last road trip.

This is also the time to get the most out of your summer wardrobe. Flaunt those arms and legs while you still can! This Fashionista looks effortlessly chic in a billowy white top and black maxi skirt. The voluminous blouse is contrasted by the fitted skirt, creating a look that is relaxed yet elegant. The look is accessorized with a classic Yves Saint Laurent bag in fuchsia, lending a pop of color to the black and white outfit. A pair of simple gold slip-on sandals completes the look. Whether she’s strolling around the city, brunching with her friends or going on a spontaneous yacht ride, this Fashionista is ready to conquer the weekend in this perfectly understated outfit.

One Simple Change: Heading out for date night this evening? Swap the maxi skirt for a pair of ankle grazing cigarette trousers and switch the sandals with a pair of pointed lace-up pumps, for a look that is evening appropriate and utterly chic.
