June marks the official start of summer, which means beach BBQs and balmy nights are just around the corner. Another thing to look forward to this June is summer style – it’s time to bring out the flowy fabrics and skinny straps! Below, I’ve rounded up five of my favorite trends to help transition your wardrobe from spring to summer.
1. Graphic Content: Summer’s punchy prints are bigger and bolder than spring’s pastels – think bright graphics, contrasting colors and unexpected patterns. I love the mix of feminine florals and bold checkers in the look above (for more tips on pattern-mixing, click here). So fresh, so chic!
2.) Sporty Spice: Swap your sandals for a pair of cute sneakers to give your outfit a sporty edge. Wedge sneakers add a more feminine twist and go well with everything from dresses to legging to shorts – I love rocking my favorite pair with a skirt and jean jacket.
3.) Sheer Necessity: An unexpected pop of sheer fabric is an elegant way to cool down and look stylish. Keep the look sleek and daytime-appropriate by pairing with clean, basic accessories.
4.) Skirt the Issue: Short skirts are making a huge statement this season – swap your midi skirt for a show-stealing mini, then pair with your favorite ankle boots for a perfect summer-ready look.
5.) Maximum Impact: A breezy maxi dress is the perfect transitional frock. On cooler days, pair with a jean jacket and booties – when it starts heating up, just sub in your floppy hat and sandals instead.
