With September just around the corner, Vogue, Harper Bazaar and other major fashion magazines are covering the latest fall fashion. However, it is hard to think about layers, knits and scarves when August is still a very hot month. Whether you are grabbing sushi, having a drink or watching your favourite summer flick, it can still be difficult to stay chic and cool at the same time.
To achieve that casually chic and cool moment, pair a simple airy chiffon tank with a long A-line skirt. I thought this floral tank top with a lace hem was a perfect fit for the denim skirt when I first saw it at Zara. I love that it is both simple and detailed at the same time but not overpowering. The high-waisted nature of the skirt makes it an ideal pairing to show-off the beautiful detail of the peplum lace hem. I also decided to unbutton the bottom of the skirt just slightly to allow me to move easily around. Additionally, I kept it consistent with a navy theme so that I can show off the necklace and shoes later on.
For accessories, I didn't want to overdo it with the jewelry so I just opted for my vintage fringe necklace for that 70's casualness. For my bag, I decided upon a navy chain Chanel classic flap bag because it allows you the option to be dressy or casual, simply by the way you hold it. You can clutch it in your arms for a chic look or around the shoulder for an easy-going unconstrained demeanor. I decided to add a subtle pop of colour by adding a purple eggplant platform heel. The colour is so beautiful and current with the trend right now, that it was just the perfect match to pair with the denim and floral tank top. Since the skirt is a little loose on me I secured it with a brown faux-croc belt and knotted it in front to make the outfit more refined and polished.
Thanks so much for reading and I hope that you have gained some fashion wisdom on how to style the perfect summer night time look. Don't forget to comment, share and like my post on Instagram, Twitter and Chictopia. Until next time, stay chic, cool and glam!
