As the cool fall breeze starts to seep its way into the summer air, all the shorts and crop tops begin to get tucked away to gather dust in our closet. To savor these last bits of summer left, I put together this outfit to celebrate summer fashion and all the fun, memorable times we all had this summer! This uber-bright multicolor crop top brings fun and color to this outfit as a nod to all the bright colors of summer. My white asymmetrical skort from Choies provides the perfect blank canvas to undertone the brightness of the crop top. Simple pieces with unique structures and cuts are a staple in my wardrobe! Pointed shoes are also another favorite of mine (as seen with my worn-daily Chloé dupe boots #noshame). They just look so chic and give any outfit a twinge of sophistication and elegance! I’ve actually been wearing lots of monochromatic outfits lately, but I realized that I should enjoy this season while I can (seeing as how the weather here will soon take a sharp turn downward) and wear more summery colors and styles of clothing!
So, friends, savor the end of summer and wear the heck out of those clothes you can only rock now during this time of the year!
Summer style usually tends to consist of casual shorts, skirts, crop tops, and the like, but who says that we have to sacrifice sophistication for comfort? As the summer temperatures start to rise, formal events begin to grow increasingly daunting as the hot weather competes with our need to accessorize and dress up. My good friend Natasha shows us exactly how to solve this dilemma by ditching those bothersome dangling accessories and, instead, utilizing intricate patterns as well as unique structures to polish up her summer outfit.
Her style is simplistic, consisting of a blue patterned peplum top from Zara paired with an ultra-chic asymmetrical white skort and comfy white sandals. The abstract blue pattern on her top adds boldness as the focal point of the outfit. Its black, white, and blue randomized slashes adds movement and complexity to this piece atop her plain, white skort. The high neckline exudes an aura of elegance while the peplum cut helps to accentuate her curves. But what really caught my attention was her trendy skort which really embodies the beauty in simplicity with its layered asymmetrical structure which adds further definition to the unique streamlining in this outfit. The white skort complements the entire composition of the outfit by acting as a blank, white canvas underlining her vivacious peplum top. For all you ladies (or gentlemen) out there looking for inspiration for a comfortable yet polished summer outfit for more dressy summer festivities, give Natasha’s style a try!
