10 Fresh Summer Outfit Ideas

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!

Summer prints and accessories are a must for summer 2019!

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.

9. Embrace Summer Prints

Nothing says summer quite like gingham or whimsical fruit prints....especially cherry prints!

10. Make It All About the Accessories 

From straw hats to scarves (worn on the neck, in the hair or tied on to your handbag), summer bags and shoes, accessories are the easiest way to make your look feel fresh for a new season. Try seashell jewelry, bucket hats, padded headbands and hair clips.

Summer is a short season, so make the most of it with some small updates that make a big difference.
