Most of you have probably tried some of the main trends for Spring/Summer already like pastels, florals, and neon. My three must try looks for Summer though, are not your average sundress and sandals ensemble!
The sizzling, tropical paradise look actually combines all of my favorite trends right now – floral print, animal print, mixing prints, and fringe! If this look is too bold for you, simply try just a tropical print paired with neutrals or solid colors. A cat eye (weather it be your sunnies or eyeliner) is a great addition to this look. Top it off with some fun jewelry that ties into the theme, like a coral branch necklace, or a lion’s head bracelet and ring.
WARNING: When wearing this look, you will be ready to make whatever you do that day, or night out, your own relaxing/wild/care-free/fun tropical paradise, so don’t plan anything too serious!
I’m so excited about this next look, which shows that shiny metallics are not just for holiday time or special occasions! It’s Summer time! The sun is shining bright, and you should be too! Also, that unfortunate misconception some have, that you can’t mix metallics…paaaalease! Get over it! Try one statement metallic piece and some mixed metal accessories if you don’t want to go head-to-toe. If you are weary about mixing separate pieces on your own, try ones that have the work done for you, like this Tri-Tone Bangle Set or Tri-Tone Sticks Necklace.
WARNING: This look will will turn some heads, and may slightly blind those not wearing protective eye wear when the sun is shining. Don’t be shy though, keep shining on!
What better time to try this last look, than for the 4th of July? This look is usually portrayed a bit more on the edgy side, involving cut-off jean shorts (often inappropriately short, showing some cheek), midriffs, side-boob, and lots of stars, stripes, studs and spikes. “Flag Fashion” is really big right now, and can be modified to your comfort level in many ways, so don’t be scared to try this look out other than on a patriotic holiday. Check out how to make your own American Flag Cutoff Shorts from my last DIY post.
WARNING: You may get mistaken for a hipster, redneck, or rockstar, while wearing this look. Who cares? Make it your own, and rock the American Girl Grunge style with pride! ‘Merica!
Which one of these looks will you be trying this Summer? Or would you rock them all like me? I would love to know which is YOUR fav!
