Summer is well on its way and it's time to figure out summer essentials to make you sizzle.
Spring and summer months always have bright, bold colors with lots of prints and accessories to express style. One of my favorite hair trends is flowers in your hair. Braiding flowers into your hair is a great way to get hair out of your face while looking cute and fresh, ready for the heat of summer.
Once you've got the hair out of the way it's on to outfitting. I LOVE the trends this spring and summer. Neon, tribal, fringe, cutouts, it's all such fun, expressive ways to showcase your style.
Tank dresses are a must have for summer. I bought a similar one from Urban Outfitters and I love wearing it. It's so comfortable yet different with the asymmetrical hemline. Try finding a tank dress with something unusual about it, a cut out back or tribal print, something that makes it stand out. Combining the neon obsession with chunky bracelets is a great way to brighten up your summer wardrobe. If you're going from day to night, switch out the gladiator sandal for a bold, color blocked heel, perfect to make you standout in the crowd.
Everyone needs at least one pair of perfect summer shorts. Whether it's jean shorts or neon pink sailor shorts, if you don't have a pair, make that a priority for your summer shopping list. Use the shorts as a base for your outfit, building the look around them. I personally love rings and bracelets so layering those with a cross body bag and a fun crop top or bralet is the perfect summer days outfit.
And don't forget, sunscreen is a definite must when it come to those scorching hot summer months!
Hope these tips inspire you create some bold new looks for summer. Whether you use pieces in your closet or have a summer style shopping spree, remember fashion is fun. It is uniquely you.
