Summer Style Tips

Summer is here, Yay! As we eagerly anticipate all the fun in the sun, it’s time to explore this seasons most exciting fashion trends. With these tips you’ll be in style for whatever adventure comes your way this summer!

SummerStyleTips-colored-bag

Add a pop of color

Find a brightly colored bag or shoes to pair with your wardrobe basics—it’ll infuse a little summer into an otherwise neutral outfit.
SummerStyleTips-dressy-shorts

Get a dressier pair of shorts

They don’t have to break the bank, but have a pair of shorts in a more tailored silhouette on hand. In the right cut and fabric, they can work for a casual office look or a dressy night out.
SummerStyleTips-overalls

Do try overalls

Overalls are no longer just for kids— Style them with anything from a button-down to a tank top. Most important, find a fit and length that flatters you.

SummerStyleTips-crop-top

Don’t be afraid to show some skin

The crop-top trend is wonderful for summer. Pair a loose version of the trend with a high-waisted bottom to avoid showing a little too much tummy.
SummerStyleTips-lace-top

Go girly with a lace top

You can dress up a lace top with a skirt and heels or dress it down with denim shorts and sandals. Even try pairing it with moto boots and a leather jacket to turn the feminine piece into something more edgy.
SummerStyleTips-boots

Wear your boots

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that you can’t wear boots anymore. Sure, they’re heavier than a summer sandal, but they add a little edge to sweet summer shorts or a sundress.
SummerStyleTips-layer

Continue to layer

Layering isn’t just for cold months. Simply adding a T-shirt under a sundress or a bustier over a button-down is ideal for summer. Try this styling trick when you’re totally bored with your favorite summer outfits.
SummerStyleTips-white-shirt

Don a classic white shirt

Classic shirting gets praises for all seasons, and summer is no exception. Basically, every outfit looks polished when you start with a crisp white shirt—you can even throw it over a bathing suit at the beach.
SummerStyleTips-tshirt-dress

Own a T-shirt dress

The throw-on-and-go T-shirt dress is perfect for summer. Wear yours from day to night by transitioning into slightly fancier footwear and accessories. Bonus: T-shirt dresses rarely wrinkle so they are a great piece to pack for your summer getaway!
SummerStyleTips-white

Don’t be afraid to wear all white

White is the ultimate summer neutral and feels so light and airy that you should totally try styling it head-to-toe.

Whats your Summer Style?

Spring Moto

Whether your signature look is a t-shirt-and-jeans, all-black everything, or a polished dress, trading in your go-to leather jacket for a spring-ready version is an easy way to brighten your look this Season. And with an array of light and bright styles now available, this quick switch is a no-brainer!

SpringMoto-Fitted

To achieve that model-off-duty vibe, balance a bright fitted jacket with relaxed pieces, like a gray t-shirt and black jeans.

StreetStyle-metallic

Make sure your metallic jacket doesn’t compete with the rest of your look by pairing it with minimal separates.

SpringMoto-perforated

For even more visual intrigue, pick a leather jacket with interesting details, like perforation.

SpringMoto-grey

Even a gray jacket can make an all-black outfit feel appropriate for both spring and daytime.

SpringMoto-Blue

In of-the-moment cobalt blue, a motorcycle jacket makes a striking statement against a mix of pared-down neutrals.

SpringMoto-White

If your looking for something that goes with everything, a white biker jacket is the perfect spring alternative to your favorite black styles.

Get The Look

SpringMoto-RebeccaMinkoff

Rebecca Minkoff Wes Moto Jacket ($598) in Blush

Wear this peachy pick with a t-shirt and your favorite denim on the weekend. Bonus- if you go printed!

SpringMoto-Forever21

Forever 21 Bold Quilted Moto Jacket ($33) in Red

This quilted style would be the perfect addition of texture to a monochrome ensemble.

SpringMoto-ClubMonaco

Club Monaco Delaine Moto Jacket ($595) in Pale Pink

Like you, this pale pink jacket is sweet with a hint of edge, thanks to the black zipper detailing.

SpringMoto-Lovers+Friend

Lovers + Friends Babe Moto Jacket ($217) in White

Just when you thought that this jacket couldn’t get any better, it also has sleeves that are removable, allowing it to do double duty as a vest.

SpringMoto-Muuba

Muuba Presley Biker Jacket ($575)

Try this green jacket over a floral frock or black and white basics for a cool contrast.

Get your Moto Running!

3 Skirt Trends and How to Wear Them

The midi, mini and the maxi! Skirt lengths vary by personal style and this spring anything goes. Each hem length holds its own, when it comes to seasonal trends. If you want new ways to style your favorite type of skirt you’ll want to check out this inspiration from the spring 2014 collections and the tips on how to wear each one.

SkirtTrend-MidiCara

For the workday: Try a midi! Just because the skirt is longer doesn’t mean it has to be stuffy or ultra-conservative. The length allows you to play with color and pattern like this Burberry lace number.

SkirtTrend-MiniPeterSom

On the weekend: Grab a mini. The temps are finally on the rise, so it’s time to let loose and have fun. Pair your skirt with a boxy top and contrasting flats, like Peter Som, and you’re ready to go from sunup to sundown.

SkirtTrend-MaxiProenzaSchouler

In the evening: Work a maxi. A full or pleated skirt, like this Proenza Schouler one, keeps you from looking matronly. The skirt’s full coverage allows you a little more leeway on top—think a cropped or cutout version.

How will you wear these skirt trends? Be sure to tag #StyleSalvation and @DannaDesigns on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to show me your style.

What hemline do you Favor?
