Elements of Whitney's Outfit

1. Lace Crop Top and Subtle Accessories

Whitney’s lace crop top has a fun and flirty vibe that adds a stylish dose of texture to her ensemble. The top and skater skirt are both über-trendy, so Whitney keeps her accessories toned-down. A white watch, a couple of subtle bangles, and a homemade bracelet from the Big Island are all this outfit needs.

2. Pink Cowgirl Boots and Floral Skirt

These boots add sass to Whitney's outfit and you can tell she has stomped on a couple of hearts in them. The pinkish-red boots look amazing with her island-tanned skin, and definitely give the outfit a country vibe. We also love how the color of her boots match her floral skirt. There's no doubt about it: this look is spot-on for any country concert.
