Summer has officially arrived! Leave it to fashion bloggers to reinvent the usual tank-and-shorts combo and take summertime dressing to the next level. Whether you’re stuck in the city or heading to a fabulous trip with your girl friends, take your style cues from these fashion girls and be on your way to your most stylish summer yet!
1. Go sheer!
One piece most girls stay away from during the summer season is a long-sleeved top, but not anymore! Take a page from Maria Bernad and opt for a sheer long-sleeved top. Stay on-trend and rock a Pantone-approved ultraviolet style for extra sartorial points.
2. Layer with breathable pieces.
Come summertime, there’s no reason for you to ditch layering altogether. Wear a loose tee under a striped jumpsuit for an easy but fashion-forward OOTD.
3. Slip into some dad sneaks.
Not a fan of espadrilles? There’s no reason for you to swap your favorite pair of sneakers for it! Give your summer look an instant dose of edge with a pair of cool dad sneaks.
4. Accessorize with a scene-stealing bag.
If there is one fashion bandwagon we’d hop onto any time, the woven bag trend would be it. Not only is it the perfect accessory for your summer dressing, it’s a great way to show your support for the locally-made pieces, too. Double win!
5. Wear your swimsuits with casual pieces.
Maximize your swimsuits and take them from the beach to the city! Wear one with a pair of dressy pants and you’ve got yourself a risky fashion look that will surely pay off this summer.
6. Freshen up your sweater.
Tanks are an easy summer must-have but let’s be real, not everyone feels confident with showing their arms off. There’s no need to pressure yourself to rock a cami this season because sweaters are still in. Take your cue from Tricia Gosingtian and wear a bright sweater over a summer dress. It’s cool, fresh, and an easy way to maximize your clothes, too!
7. Stay breezy in your power suit.
While a power suit is all the rage, it’s not exactly anyone’s first choice for the summer. That was until Jane Aldridge’s take on the power suit. Cop her look and pair a knotted graphic tee with your bottoms. Drape your jacket over your shoulders and you’re all set!
