We love you so much we decided to take you shopping with us! Summer is fast approaching so we decided to go scavenge some wardrobe staples for the upcoming hot weather.
From Dior to Urban Outfitters, flowy dresses in cool prints are going to be big this season. We found layered mini dresses in cool zig zag prints for only $10!
Cool sheer tops can get you a long way – breezy enough to be worn during the day with shorts, dressy enough to be worn in the evening with a smart pant or high waisted skirt. We particularly liked the ones we spotted in black and hot pink, a color that is always big in summer and looks great with sun kissed skin.
As all you fashionistas must know, accessories can really make the outfit. We loved this orange faux leather bag, it will definitely give any outfit a serious color boost. Jimmy Choo’s summer collection offers a few citrus colored croc bags, as does Blugirl. But guess what, the bag we found was only $15!!
We love retro, going retro is always a great way to be unique and feminine. These polka dot high waisted skirts have just the right fix of 50’s chic and are breezy and light so will be great in the hot summer months. Kate Spade’s summer 2012 collection featured a similar skirt, and polka dots in general were big in the resort collections. For more accessible prices, Topshop has some cool 50’s inspired skirts in flowery prints.
Just because summer means bathing suits and being half naked doesn’t mean we can neglect our style and good taste! There are plenty of accessories that we can play with and plenty of cool options of what to wear over the swimsuit.
The hats we tried on, for example, are very St. Tropez. Similar ones were seen at Blumarine’s resort collection and at Alice + Olivia.
Take advantage of time you have off for spring break and go shopping with friends, mom, or by yourslef! Remember, money can’t buy taste and good style can be found even at low prices.
We would love to hear about your summer staples and what you plan to wear when it gets hot!
