Raves over the summery goodness of this outfit from Alicia are soon forthcoming. For now, let’s talk about how we can appropriate this look *cue gleeful hand-rubbing*. Begin with your favorite blue-hued maxi. Pleats are welcome, but not required. Aqua or turquoise shades are stellar, but any shade of blue is workable – don’t stress: we’ll tweak it in the mix! Keep a breezy, carefree vibe going by topping your maxi with a tied tee. This works on it’s own for causal events or date night. Tuck a (longer!) cami underneath for dressier or more professional occasions. The cami will work like color blocking and help you play with proportion. Tip for tying your tee: create visual shape by using the knot to place the hem of the tee at the narrowest part of your body; customize it to precisely what works best for you. Higher knots will create an empire waist, while lower knots will approximate a classic waist. Alternatively, go with an un-tied, slightly cropped tee a la Foxy Fierce. Play around with the shades of your pieces to echo the ocean-colors palette: aqua, sky blue, navy, gray, seafoam, turquoise. With darker or denim skirts, do a lighter and/or greener tee, light blue with a gray maxi, et cetera, et cetera. Baubletry gives you another avenue for expanding your color palette: think a wrap or beaded bracelet, or belt or scarf twisted at your wrist and fun earrings. Bonus points for multi-colored ones that bring in the whole range of blues ;). Try to include three or four different tones in the same family. They’ll blend beautifully when you span the spectrum. This outfit just screams to be completed with an espadrille, perhaps something with Foxy-ish personality, like a floral print, tie-dye or cutouts, or cute stripes, or a touch of metallic flash! Add a saddle or bucket bag and a fab pair of shades you're ready to hit the boardwalk... or the sidewalk... or the catwalk ;)
