Summer Femmewear

Anonymous asked: "So it’s summer and being so, it’s hot. I don’t like wearing many pieces when it gets like this, so how can I wear less but still look decent? (I do have a more feminine style)"

In the summer, it’s all about pattern, texture, fit, bright colors, and accessories. If you’re used to creating an outfit with personality via layers, it can be hard when you are stripped of them. But if you have a more feminine style, you have the added benefit of rocking cool skirts and dresses. 

A three-color palette of creme, brown, and light blue, and some stylin lace shorts makes a classy ensemble. source: lookbook.nu
