The first outfit is has a funky and casual feel. This patterned top is full of vibrant color. I adore the three quarter length sleeves. They can help create a feeling of femininity with more coverage than a t-shirt. I would wear this out for a fun casual event like a barbecue, karaoke, or a diner dinner. It can work as a shopping outfit. The sleeves can provide that perfect amount of additional warmth from powerful air conditioning during the heat of the day. The skirt is a simple a-line, easily removable in the dressing room and has some stretch to accommodate lunch! :p
The second has a more toned-down air to it. The neutral navy shorts and black base color of the blouse, the focus of the outfit is the beautiful color play in the blouse. I love the blush pink, mustard yellow, white, and red together. The sleeves are elastic at the ends, which allows me to control the exact length of the sleeves – so important, being petite like me!! Pushing the elastic up, the blouse subtly incorporates the trend of sleeve volume. The navy shorts are a little longer than short shorts of past years (Thank goodness! I don’t like feeling like I’m spilling out all day.). They keep the modest/class factor while the outfit remains casual and breathable in the hot summer weather!
The third and last is a business casual, brunch worthy ensemble. The bold yellow (a trend this summer) lace top and turquoise trousers make bold statement. I actually wore this when I studied abroad. With grey suede heels and lace top, texture is also at play in this outfit. The grey allows the pants and shirt to shine. Bold and elegant!
