We all love a good summer wardrobe where we get to wear strappy dresses, add some glow to our skin and to get those tans we’ve been needing. I rarely buy entire new wardrobes because I love that my style is transitional for every season. Since I wear a lot of neutrals, it’s so easy to purchases accessories or pick up minimal pieces to create a great summer look from head to toe. Since summer will be upon us very soon, I wanted to compile a list of some items I think would fit perfectly in our wardrobes.
COLOR VIBES IN YOUR STYLE
Orange and peach are my go-to colors from the summer season. Why? Because it makes me look so Tan and glow-y! Along with Orange, I like to wear a lot more white because it just adds that perfect summer touch! Another color that I believe will be a huge trend would be Yellow and Aqua. Something about those colors scream summa, summa, summa time and look great on almost every single skin tone.
WHY INVEST IN ACCESSORIES AND NOT CLOTHES?
Because it’s easier to justify sunglasses and not that $200 vest with fringe. You might not be into fringe next summer, but you’ll use those sunglasses! I like to stick to neutral bags so don’t invest too much into colorful ones unless you know you’ll wear it next season.
FAVORITE MUST HAVE STYLE PIECES
Long Summer dresses, destroyed shorts, tank tops etc… these type of things can be found almost everywhere and make sure you take advantage of those deals. I like to shop during winter for my summer items because they are, yes… You guessed it; more affordable and who cares if its last season? I’ll wear it and that’s all that matters.
- Destroyed Denim Jean Shorts or Denim
- Flowy tank tops and crop tops
- Summer dresses (Long, light weight easy to style)
GO-TO ACCESSORIES TO POLISH OFF YOUR LOOK
The best things to include would be hats, sunglasses and bags. You can also add statement jewelry to the list too because sometimes, a boho-chic look is all you need to get the party started!
- Sunglasses (Quay is a popular brand currently)
- Hats (Floppy, structured and snapbacks)
- Bags (I love a big bag in tote form. But checkout mini-backpacks and lounge like bags too!)
- Statement jewelry (Think boho-realness! Dainty and layer-able pieces)
- Sandals (I love gladiator style shoes!)
EXTRA TOUCHES TO TRANSLATE YOUR LOOK
Flash Tattoos are fun! Those metallic silver and gold temporary tattoos are perfect if you don’t own or want a lot of accessories. You’ll see them in Coachella looks, music festivals and other places that call for originality and a fun effortless style! It’s so easy to apply because you cut the style(s) you want, apply it to the skin with a wet/damp cloth, hold for a few minutes and you’re done!
