What to Wear: Summer Style

It’s SUMMER!!!  Even when it’s boiling outside, summer is one of my favorite seasons (fall is the other!).  And I’ve got three fashion inspirations for you to try out this summer.  Summer is all about bright colors, fun accessories, and comfortable fashions.  No matter if you’re going to an elegant summer party, shopping for the day, or just need an outfit to go from day to night, you’re covered with these three ideas.

Summer EleganceSummer Elegance:  The white dress is a summer staple.  If you’re like me, you’ve got various events and parties during the summer.  From white parties (I’m giving credit to RHOBH star Kyle Richards for helping these parties be the hottest new event to have!) to weddings (except, I still subscribe to the old ways of not wearing white to a wedding, so this outfit may not work!) you always need a semi-dressed up look that can appear formal but still be comfy and trendy to wear.  With a sleeveless short dress and colorful accessories, this outfit would work for so many things!  Notice that I made sure to pair a neutral color nail polish with this outfit because there are so many other complementary colors with this that you don’t need the focus on your nails.  Nude polish is ALWAYS a great bet no matter the outfit!


Sand + SeaThe Day to Night Outfit:  Sometimes you’re out shopping with the girls and need an outfit that will work for daytime and also transition to maybe going out for a party or dinner than evening with your significant other.  This coral maxi dress with gold accessories and nude wedges work for both!  A mint or turquoise nail polish highlights the turquoise in the necklace and earrings, as well as the straw envelope clutch.  The strapless dress will show off your great summer glow, and the sunglasses will be a great accessory for daytime!  The geometric style of the jewelry is a fabulous contrast to the soft colors in the dress, and the colors just make you think of the beach even if you’re not there.  It’s a fantastic outfit for any occasion!


Summer Tassels


Casual Trendy Tassels:  Unless you’re under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that this year’s must have summer accessories are almost always decorated with some sort of tassel.  And while we thought the cold shoulder and off the shoulder tops were on their way out, they’ve managed to stick around.  A simple white top paired with ripped skinny or boyfriend jeans is just what you need for a casual day out.  Put that with some brightly colored tassel covered accessories, sandals, and a crossbody bag for ease, and you’re ready for brunch with friends or a day shopping.  Wear your hair in a messy bun or high ponytail to show of these gorgeous statement earrings, and you’re set!


So there you go!  Three easy to style and create outfits for every summer occasion.  So, take these, make them your own, and get ready to beat the summer heat with style.  Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook for more fashion and lifestyle photos for summer style and everyday life!
