It is officially summer here in London! With the sun finally out, students everywhere are bringing out all the colors we hid away over the winter.
It can be hard to mix colors without going overboard, but Naureen is an expert, as evidenced by her dramatic yet put-together look that screams 'festival chic' with all the right dashes of cool and quirky.

Elements of Naureen's Outfit
1. Funky Accessories
Naureen’s accessories are statement pieces on their own, but upon closer inspection they actually match well together and even accentuate her embellished skirt.
I love how her sunglasses resemble a diamond and reference this season's holographic trend. Naureen's chandelier heart-shaped earrings are an amazing cross between quirky and chic with their striking colors and shapes. The pieces combine to add a bit more flair to her bold outfit.
2. Embellished Skirt
As she mentioned, Naureen loves to take inspiration from her Indian roots and this is very evident in her multicolored skirt. It's gorgeous in photos and breathtaking in person, embellished with bright threading, beading, and mirrors.
The skirt on its own is already the talking point of any outfit, but Naureen doesn't stop there - she manages to match it with a DIY fringe top that somehow works perfectly. I love how her outfit echoes her style, which she describes as kitschy and comfy, with its bright colors and loose fit.
