I ran into Julia on her way to class and noticed her cute and perfectly put together outfit. From her red lips to her cobalt and red dress, her look was clean and sophisticated with a bright, distinct pattern. Although she told me she barely put any thought into the outfit, beauty lies in the effortless style she created.

Elements of Julia’s Outift
1. Print Dress and Green Cardigan
Julia’s colorful Forever 21 dress was the first thing that caught my eye. The reds and blues of the dress work well together and the alternating tribal patterns on the bodice and skirt create the look of two pieces rather than just a dress. Her dark green H&M cardigan doesn’t detract from the dress but keeps the look classic with a little extra hint of color. I also loved the way her red lips brought out the color of her dress!
2. Suede Booties
These muted taupe-colored booties from Zappos keep Julia’s look simple. They don’t distract from the main elements of her outfit and really round out her look. I also took note of her socks peeking out of the top of her shoes. What a cute detail!
