Is it ever too early to start planning outfits for the Summer? Definitely not. Here are a few fun trends you should jump on before summer begins!
Stripes are a trend that have stood their ground throughout the years, but this Summer the print is not your standard affair that you may visualize the French floating around in. Choose a striped number that stands out and adds a punch to your every day ensembles! Think flowey pants with a large, blocked stripe print, or a statement silk scarf that balances feminine and modern which you can use to add some excitement to a neutral look.
Another style tip to try out this summer is more daring: It’s time to pull out those statement, frilled shirts. Semi-over-the-top frills and detailing set to neutral tones is the way to go. Pair ruffled sleeves on a camel colored shirt with loose ripped jeans and some woven wedges, and you are ready for that rooftop dinner with friends. Or, try a red gingham wrap top paired with distressed denim skinny jeans and laced up white espadrilles. This statement is sure to rack in the compliments, as it is both daring and exciting, but also tastefully casual!
Another simple way to up your Summer style game is to invest in some brightly colored or strong statement jewelry. Think bright neon yellow tassel earrings or a knotted necklace along with a simple pair of linen white pants and a silk white top. The look is effortlessly chic but also has that fun pop that vamps up the neutral tones from last summer to an updated, 2018 vibe. A great piece of jewelry takes a classic outfit and makes it just unique enough that it will feel personalized to your mood.
A final piece of style advice I can give for this summer is to embrace the natural beauty of your body. Emphasize your back structure with loose fitted tops and wear pants that flow softly on your body. With the many women’s marches occurring in recent months, there has been an added emphasis in fashion on the natural beauty of a woman’s body.
Think soft, silk blazers buttoned with a simple black tube top underneath or delicate fabrics that flow over the skin. It is time for clothes to beautifully coexist with the female body! When you aren’t wearing those statement pieces, try to wear clothing that embraces the natural curves of the body and highlight those particularly female qualities that are so special.
