We’re officially in the heat of summer now, which means it’s time for some fresh style inspiration. I love this time of year – the balmy summer days make me want to ditch my layers and don all things sheer, lacey and light. Here are five looks to inspire you this month:
1.) Neutralize: I love neutrals for summer – they’re classy and polished but still appropriate for the warmer temps. Nothing pairs better with neutrals than gold – pile on the gold arm candy and balance out your look with a pop of white. So chic!
2.) Short Statement: If there’s any time to rock statement shorts, it’s now. Animal print, chevron, polka dot, stripes, tribal…I love them all! Make your shorts the focal point of your outfit and wear them with a black or white top. Dress them up with sleek heels, or take them to the beach with a pair of strappy sandals.
3.) Hip Flop: I love the beach-to-street look – and nothing screams “beach” more than a chic, floppy hat. It’s the finishing touch to any summer-ready outfit! Wear with a light, flowy dress and wedges. And don’t forget your beach bag!
4.) Jean on Jean: No longer considered a fashion faux pas, the jean on jean look is perfect for July’s more casual days. Grab your favorite pair of jean shorts, toss on a chambray top and finish the look with a messy topknot and cute shades. The end result is surprisingly polished!
5.) Scarf it Up: Summer scarves are so fun to accessorize with – you can tie them around your bag, your neck and even around your head! (Click here to learn 7 ways to style a scarf). Find a silky one in a fun print and keep the rest of your outfit simple. Match your lip color to your scarf to tie your whole look together. (And a neon accessory or two never hurt anyone…)
