Summer is finally here! As temps continue to rise, give your style a re-boot with some fresh summer looks. From bright colors to matching separates and this season’s hottest trends, here are some warm-weather-ready outfit ideas to inspire your closet this summer season.
1. Mix & Match Prints
Fashion’s love of the animal print midi skirt is still going strong. Leopard is now considered a classic neutral, but updated options include tiger,zebra and cow prints. This versatile print is the perfect starting point to build any outfit around, just add sandals, a tank and a contrasting print in the form of a bucket hat or mini bag.
2. Find Your Perfect Jumpsuit
A jumpsuit makes for an easy all-in-one summer look that requires no effort. Add bright accessories to fall make the look pop
3. Wear the White Pants
A pair of white cropped wide-leg pants looks instantly chic for summer in the office and beyond. Add a light linen blazer for work or wear with a tank or puffy sleeve blouse for the weekend.
4. The Throw and Go Maxi Dress
Long and languid is THE silhouette of the summer. Draping , wrapping, ties and knots achieve a sophisticated daytime look while high shine silks and satins create daytime opulence. Considered by some a “modern tea dress,” these styles show off a little ankle, but still retain a hint of flirtation. Find dresses that are midi-length and flow away from the body, like a dropped waist. Prints and colors are up to you, with styles ranging from saturated hues to antique florals. This summer is filled with endless choices
of ultra feminine maxi dresses that are instant looks in themselves. Add a small handbag and kitten heeled sandals.
5. Swap Out Your Sandals for Sneakers
Whether it’s raining or you simply need a break from your sandals, swap them for a pair of classic white sneakers. The sporty shoe looks especially good with a midi skirt or dress.
6. Bring Back Your Denim Skirt
Yes. The denim skirt is back. Go for a high-waisted and frayed version that will look cool with any of your summer tops; i.e. tanks, puffy sleeves and one shoulder iterations. Choose a mini or midi length based upon your preference, age and style.
7. The T-Shirt and Slip Skirt
An easy and instantly chic outfit formula? Your favorite white T-shirt and a satin slip skirt. Add sandals or white sneaker and you are good to go!
8. Buy a Wrap Skirt
Add one of summer’s biggest color trends like vibrant yellow or bright orange into your wardrobe in the form of a easy-to-wear and eye-catching skirt silhouette.
