We are finally in FULL Summer Swing!
Yes, I know. Its HOT AF.
Yes, I Know. Most of us don't have summer vacation like the good ol days (can't we just go back to having grade school rules or something)!
BUT, what we don't have in endless popsicles and summer beach days, we have in FASHION! If you ask me, the best way to sass your way through summer is looking polished, on trend and fabulous all day long! (That and a bottomless supply of raspberry mint mojitos, of course).
Since we still have plenty of summer days ahead, I teamed up with my friends at JD Williams to curate a list of on-trend, hot summer styles that will work for you all season long!
- A POP OF COLOR
Add a pep into your step with some color in your closet! These bright, saffron yellow pants are the perfect way to embrace bold, bright colors this season!
2. A SUMMER SWEATER
I know, sounds ridiculous. But really there isn't anything better than a perfect light layer for those nights when you’re strolling the boardwalk long after the sun has set, a summer sweater in a lightweight knit is the perfect add on layer! Plus, this doubles as a way to stay warm in those frigid AC offices!
3. AN EASY MAXI
This jersey wrap front maxi is gorgeous, available in three colors AND is super comfortable and lightweight making it the perfect grab & go pick for the hot summer work days when you just want to be carefree and stylish!
4. A SASSY SLIP DRESS
Simple, black, sassy. This slip dress should be in everyone’s closet. Dress it down with a moto and some sneaker or dress it up with bold accessories and strappy stilettos! This is a no-brainer, 100% A+ outfit option!
5. FUN FLORAL
This season, instead of grabbing that floral tank or dress, think beyond what you’re used to and go for an updated on-trend jumpsuit in a bold big floral! A statement making print + an updated leg silhouette & an on-trend jumpsuit come together effortlessly in one, beautiful piece!
Another major footwear trend, the mule is versatile and comfortable! Pair the with everything from denim shorts to maxi dresses, this is def a summer staple worth investing in!
The slide trend is everywhere! Get a pair that will take you from your weekend at the beach to your Monday commute! I love the idea of grabbing a slide in a metallic, for an updated look!
Choose your garment, add ruffles. I can be anything, really. From a bardot inspired bathing suit to a simple tee, but this ruffle maxi skirt is a bold, bright and summer-ready statement making piece that will certainly turn heads.
9. LBS - A LITTLE BLACK SWIMSUIT
A little black swimsuit is the perfect addition to any summer wardrobe! Choosing a basic, classic suit allows for more styling options with your beachwear accessories, so you can have fun with mix and match kaftans, beach pants & more! Plus, who doesn’t love sexy little black swimsuit.
10. BEACH KAFTAN
A stylish, beach kaftan not only serves ts poolside and beachfront purpose, but can double as a light layer over your dress, shorts/tees, jeans and tank combos! Great for the weekend relaxation circuit as well as a fun way to add color and print into your 9-5 wardrobe. I love a piece that can work overtime in my closet.
11. FESTIVAL FRINGE
Festival season isn’t over yet, there are tons of fun summer concerts to attend. Pair these fun fringed sandals with any basic look for an instant update!
12. A NEW BASIC
Swap out your basic crew neck tee for a v neck ladder insert cap sleeve top in bright bold colors and easy to wear neutrals for a more polished, but comfortable, wardrobe staple.
Bold prints, pastels, neutrals- stripes are everywhere! I love the idea of mixing two trends in one with this striped slip dress perfect for a summer night on the town! Style remix; wear it to work with a blazer and flats for a more professional look.
14. UPDATED DENIM
Swap out your denim jeans, culottes and overalls for a lightweight and ladylike denim maxi skirt in a comfortable chambray! Pair it with just about everything from a bathing suit to a button down oxford!
Show off your summer glow in white this season! A fresh, crisp, classic that works for any wardrobe. An off the shoulder blouse, tiered maxi dress, maybe a simple oxford. OR, my personal favorite- a white skinny jean! Whatever you choose, wear your white with confidence.
