My Style: Last Days of Summer

Today's Look:  is about celebrating these last few days of summer before fall arrives September 22.  To honor my favorite season, I chose to wear something beachy, fun, and classic.  When I think classic, I often think retro.  I started the look off with the high-waisted, denim shorts and chevron crop-top.  Next, I chose a straw, floppy hat and black, studded wedges. To add a 1950's touch, I wore red lipstick and black, cat-eye sunglasses.  Finishing the outfit, I chose black, flower earrings and straightened my hair to create drama in the look.

Fashion Tip:  When wearing a big, floppy hat, and dark shades, don't overdo the jewelry.  The hat and sunglasses are the emphasis and don't require much accessorizing.  With the busy, chevron crop-top and button-decorated shorts, the outfit is already detailed; therefore, less is more.

Below, I included a wide selection of floppy hats from stripes to bright red.
