Opt For a Pretty Printed Shorts Set and Get the Kate Mara Look

By  April 26, 2013

Get ready for the simplest way to get chic and fashion forward style this spring and summer: a matching short and shirt set in a daring print. No color coordinating or piece styling drama involved—the trendy outfit is ready to go as is! Choose a luxe fabric with grown up appeal and add a cool necklace and fancy heels to the ensemble, like Kate Mara did at a House of Cards event this week, to make sure the separates don’t borderline looking like pajamas. Another tip: go for a intricate pattern, perhaps one with embellishment or embroidery, that demands to be seen. While Mara’s delicate floral scheme on her Mulberry set is perfectly proper, we’ve chosen a print from Topshop that’s a little more rowdy! To break up the matchy-matchiness of it, finish the look with a metallic collar and a pair of beige pumps. Pack it for your resort getaway or wear it for a hot night out with the girls; it’s perfect for all your warm weather adventures!
