Hello June; time to talk summer trends! Each season, each year trends come and go. Sometimes they stick around for a couple years. Sometimes they’re new to the scene. This year there are definitely a couple to return; which I am so excited about! Straw is quintessential during the summer months and it’s back for more! Thank goodness… last year I missed the boat. This year I am hopping on! Has this ever happened to you? You love a trend. But you decide to skip it, only to change your mind, and then it’s too late? The ship has sailed. This summer there are so many fun trends and I hope this helps you decide to take part! Whether you’re in it to save or ready to splurge it’s quite easy to find accommodating price points.
This summer we’re seeing paper bag waist shorts, platform sandals, sweater tanks, straw bags, and even straw earrings. All super great individual pieces that, if paired together would make one awesome summer get up!
Sweater tanks are a great way to get some dimension from an otherwise simple tank top. It dresses things up! Love how the texture of the fabric enriches the feel of an outfit. Splurge and go for the $88 tank or save a bit and snag the $59 option.
Paperbag waist shorts-
Paperbag shorts are amazing! They have great coverage, a fun feminine ruffle waistline and come in varying colors, fabrics, and patterns. A classic denim is a great place to start if you’re on the fence about this trend. Pair with the sweater tank tucked in and you’ve got great start for a complete summer look. Snag the $179 pair or save and spend $60
Straw bags definitely get ya’ ready for those summer vibes! I love how a quick switch out of a bag can completely transform an outfit. It really is all about the finishing touches. While yes, this means investing in different purses; it doesn’t have to mean it breaks the bank. There are great options that start at reasonable prices. Splurge and buy the $189 option or save and purchase the $40 bag.
Let’s keep going with finishing touches. A pair of flip flops would be a good casual option for a summer look. The exact same outfit can be taken to the next level with a pair of platform sandals. These babies are hot, hot, hot this summer! Not only are they super cute; they’re super comfortable. These awesome shoes add height while maintaining comfort. Colors range from classic neutrals to bold bright hues and prints. Whatever your heart desires can pretty much be found! Splurge and snag a pair for $159 or save and go for the $49 pair.
*Typo in the hard copy of the column. The earrings trend are not just straw but tassel.
The last summer trend we’re covering is straw/tassel statement earrings. They are the best neutral which makes for awesome versatility. Wear these pretties with a tank and shorts or opt for a dress and heels. The options are endless! You know you’ll get the best bang for your buck with a purchase like this. Opt to splurge and spend $44 or save and snag the $9 pair.
Thanks for reading dear ones!
