YAY! Summer is here and we are all loving the warmer temps... I know I am!
There are so many things I'll be looking to get to amp up my summer style and keep me cool this summer. But there are tons of items already in my closet from Spring that I"ll be rocking all Summer long. And I see these pieces lasting all the way through the Fall season. These trends are here to stay, well at least another few months. So keep them out and get them to good use.
Stripes - This trend is also very figure flattering and looks great on all the new swim this season. I love this suit by Gap and have a few swimwear pieces from Solids &. Stripes that are my go to swimsuits when hitting the beach or water park with the kids. Stripes are everywhere, from swim to tee's to dresses to skirts. I love mixing solids with stripes and even patterns. Have fun with this trend this summer!
Denim with embellishments - Denim jacket are the perfect seasonal accessory because they are so functional in the changing temps. But they are also super stylish and we've all seen the trend evolve from over embellished with patches to painted on designs but what I am gravitating toward the most these days are the simple yet supers chic broach and pin embellished jackets. I recently bought a Chanel Logo pin and will match that with other pins that I have collected to create my own understated look this season!
Off the Shoulder - This super sexy trend is definitely one I love. It just accentuates your neck and shoulders and is very easy to wear. I love this dress by Love Shack Fancy but this trend works great on shirts and I've seen so many ruffled off the shoulder shirts that I will lusting after this season. And I know they will last me into Fall especially the ones with a longer sleeve.
Sequins - Sequins were are over the runway and I just love that designer are making this trend translate into daywear! I love this skirt by Top Shop and the rainbow stripe look. I can see myself wearing this with a simple tank and flat sandal for a stylish daytime look but can also be worn for those amazing long summer nights paired with a strappy heel sexy off the shoulder top.
The White Sneaker (One of my favorite trends) - I would have never thought I'd wear a white leather sneaker and even pair it with a cute summer dress but it actually has become one of my favorite new trends. It had staying power and I love this one by Gucci with the subtle logo stripe. I wear mine with cute racer stripe leggings for a sporty look but also wear them with all my favorite dresses! What a great and comfortable alternative to heels or sandals!
Bold/Colorful Prints - Color is a must in the summer and although I don't wear it all the time, I just love having a bold bright color or print to throw on to make me feel pretty and joyful. This trend is the perfect match with the summer sunshine! Plus it's great from day to night. Something worth keeping around for when you need that POP!
White Booties - It took me a season to warm up to this trend but I really see it lasting for a while. I know it's a trend and it will not be around forever but I do see it lasting into fall. I also just love it with a beautiful spring/summer floral dress. It probably one of my favorite ways to wear my white boots by DVF. It also pairs well with denim and every stylista should have a pair in her closet!
Statement Tee Shirt - Whether it's a large logo tee or a fun graphic tee, this trend is here to stay. So keep all your comfy t-shirts ready this summer. Pair it with fun denim or dress it up with a sequin skirt. This look is versatile and can be worn many different ways. Even under your favorite spaghetti strap dress for that 90's style look.
Long Sleeve Dress - I obviously love this trend and it's perfect for this time of year when the weather is changing one minute to the next. The long sleeve offers the perfect amount of coverage when it's a bit chilly but this can be worn all season long. Pairs perfectly with a nice flat sandal, a bootie or even a stacked heel sandal. I also wear this look often with a thigh high boot which is perfect leading into Fall.
