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?

XOXO
