A lot of you readers who are in school, like myself, should be expecting summer break right around the corner (if you're not already on break). Almost as important as planning which days you're going to the beach, is asking yourself "what am I going to be wearing?" After all, how can you enjoy your vacation if you don't look nice?
We have your summer break inspiration right here!
Maxi dresses can often look too bohemian, but the geometric neckline and not-to-long length paired with casually swept-up hair make this Prada dress an A+ choice for summer wear.
Work attire isn't just for the office - break out that pencil skirt and black pumps to wear with your casual tee and sunglasses for a look that says "I'm financially stable, but I'm not afraid to have fun!"
Both of these outfits are gorgeous in different ways, but go nicely together as well. Both the outfits are simple in style and maintenance, but what really makes them stand out is the genius colouring.
Anja Rubik does the grunge-y model off duty look better than anyone, and her ensemble above makes for a great casually deconstructed look, and a brilliant contrast between the tattered white cut-offs and crisp blue blouse (plus the gold gladiators show off her tan)
Innerwear becomes outerwear.
Julia Frakes is very eclectic and quirky when it comes to dressing, but that may not be for everyone. Everyone can take a clue from Julia, however, when it comes to colour and pattern coordination - this outfit above is a prime example of her brilliance!
Another example of office summer dressing, all you need to embellish is a bold belt, or statement jewelry.
Enlarged floral prints are often much more modern than small liberty prints, and non-fussy gladiators pair with that style very nicely. I also love the neckline on this dress - the embellishment, the square v-neck... glorious summer wear...
Simple and lovely - a full bright skirt, flat ankle booties, and a simple white blouse just scream "Summer '09"
Sometimes all you need to look great in the summer is a bold, bright, graphic dress and a whole lot of attitude ;)
