It’s officially Summer, and it’s time for colorful tops, stylish shorts and skirts, comfortable dresses, and sun-worthy jumpsuits! Look chic in the heat with the latest looks for the season. Check out a few of my favorites!
Show Your Stripes
What better fun than to wear prints and patterns! One of this year’s popular print trends is stripes: whether vertical, horizontal, or diagonal – pick your choice! This top gives me strong summer vibes! With the bright yellow and white combination, this breezy cotton top is versatile enough to wear in the office (pair with black pants) or at play (match with denim shorts or navy skirt).

Stay cool and look hot
After the Winter that would never end, beat the heat and enjoy the summer breeze by wearing summer basics such as shorts or skirts. Show those legs off proudly with denim shorts or go long with a flowy, floral skirt. Whichever you choose, enjoy the comfort of wearing summer’s simple staples.

Dress for Summer
Have fun in the sun in this beautiful eyelet dress! There is so much versatility of wearing it with white sneakers for that casual look, sandals for that summer garden party, or heels for that soiree across town – the possibilities are endless!

Breathe Easy
Keep it cool for the summer by wearing natural, breathable fabrics like cotton and linen. Wear this linen jumpsuit for any occasion! It’s lightweight and comfortable while remaining fashionable and sophisticated. This outfit will turn heads and have everyone asking, “Who’s that girl?”.

Add “Sumsories” (aka Summer Accessories)
Bags, hats, and shoes – oh my! You can never have enough purses, right? Buy one or two or three (you get the point) and step up your fashion game with these trending bags: belt, beaded, see-through, net, bucket, straw, wooden clutches, or the classic top handles! Want to feel chic and look like a movie star? Throw on a hat (floppy, fedora, boater – you name it) and a pair of sunnies – it completes the look and protects you from the sun. Show off that lovely pedicure by wearing thong or slip-on sandals. Don’t forget to put on standout pieces like a chunky bracelet, delicate ring, or vibrant earrings for that put together look. These “sumsories” bring the finishing touch to any ensemble!
