Elements of Alex’s Outfit

1. Bright Pink Shirt


Alex’s hot pink, locally-purchased shirt pops boldly against her navy shorts. The summery color of her shirt is sure to make her stand out on GC’s green campus. 

The best part about this shirt? Its lightweight fabric means its long sleeves work even in the Georgia summer heat. Flowy shirts like Alex's are a must-have for any college student’s wardrobe. 

2. Navy Shorts


Alex’s navy T.J. Maxx shorts are too cute. They are simple, chic, and contrast well with her bright shirt. If you don't have a pair like these in your closet, you need to grab some and fast.

3. Mixed & Matched Bling


Alex knows how to create a killer accessory combo. Her statement necklace (seen 2 photos above) really does make a statement; it contains navy hues that tie the whole outfit together. Her turquoise ring (above, here) goes perfectly with her necklace. 

I also love that Alex isn't afraid to mix metals. Her locally-purchased shotgun shell bracelet and silver Pandora bracelet, as well as her necklace and ring, add multiple metallic hues to her outfit.

4. Neutral Wedges


Neutral wedges are a summertime must. A single pair of these stylish shoes can go a long way, working with an endless combination of outfits! 

Alex prefers wedges over heels because they are a little more comfortable. These cutout wedges give her outfit extra style without making her look overdressed for class. 

Would you wear Alex's bold pop of color?
