It is no surprise that InStyle has asked The O.C. alum Rachel Bilson to author her own fashion column. With Rachel’s effortless boho-chic look, I think we could all benefit from the advice of this fashionista extraordinaire.
Light summer cardigans in bright colors are a great way to stay warm during that transition period before summer really starts. Pairing them with denim shorts is a fun way to take the grandfather out of cardigans. I chose a bright cardigan for this casual look, which I think works as well as Rachel’s light pink one.
My first instinct would be to wear this outfit with flats, but I actually love the feminine touch that the beige t-strap Mary Janes add to it. Don’t forget to add one or two of your favorite long necklaces. The first thing that comes to mind is something in gold, which will compliment both the red and the beige. If you don’t already have one, I recommend the Hammered Circle necklace from Charlotte Russe.
