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?

Denim Vests Under $100

DenimVests

The denim vest is a true transitional piece and the perfect lightweight layer for all of your casual tops and warm-weather dresses. Lucky for you, spending a fortune to get one is not a requirement. Here is an assortment of spring’s coolest denim vests, all under $100!

The Inspiration
Featuring a light wash and distressed detailing, the Denim Vest ($615, 609.317.1000) Cara Delevingne modeled at the Just Cavalli S/S 13 show is unquestionably cool. While its worn-in look is decidedly casual, the addition of the slim Alma Tadema Leopard Pants ($860, 877.551.7257) and nude peep-toe leather platform heels takes the vest from weekend-ready to stylish night out with the girls.

Shop The Look
Levi’s Trucker Vest ($68)
Levi’s has that perfectly worn-in wash down to a science, which explains why we love their Trucker Vest so much. Its vintage-y look would be the perfect complement to a breezy summer frock.

MangoDenim Gilet Vest ($40) in Light Denim Mango’s light-wash denim gilet has a clean and polished look you can easily dress up (pair it with a ruffled dress and platforms) or down (style it with a band tee and black skinnies).

BDG Cutoff Denim Vest ($59)
Frayed hems give this vest a bit of that I’m-with-the band nonchalance we adore. In other words: this should definitely be on your packing list for the upcoming summer music festivals.

BCBGeneration Cropped Denim Vest ($98)
We’re seeing so much white denim this season, and this vest by BCBGeneration offers a fresh way to try the look. Contrast the neutral hue with a bright blouse, or layer it over other white pieces for a monochromatic look.

American Eagle Denim Vest ($50)
The great thing about this American Eagle vest is that it’s fitted around the waist, so it really shows off your shape. The shrunken fit looks equally great with flowy silhouettes or over more body-conscious pieces.

XOXO
