As the temperature rises during one of my best Summers in NYC (loving this heeeaaat), it’s becoming just so easy to think up a zillion outfits, actually pull the pieces from my closet, and finally put together a killer (and comfy) outfit. So yes… this is defs a typical Summer look for me: a mix of Summery sweet and absolutely chic.
Personally, I lean more towards a tailored shorts look than the denim option. It’s probably the light- feel of the shorts that makes me a bigger fan of the linen-looking choice. I love the micro gingham vibes going on with these shorts. And the added paisley print really make these perfectly pretty. Gotta love my fave colour palette for this Summer -the blue & white- so crisp, clean, and fresh of course!
The off-the-shoulder crop with a little frill is an absolute given for the Summer… you can honestly find these staples in all stores (probs in more than one design, fabric, pattern!) Statement sunnies, my mini metallic backpack, and wrap ‘round sandals add the extra va va voom vibe.
See how easy it can be to get an outfit looking top notch? With a little help from my trending-item- friends, it’s time to get you those fashion forward feels with August’s style picks.
Here are my top 5:
(Swipe right to shop multiple options.)
1.)Retro Frame Cat Eye Sunnies
If you follow me on Insta, you must have seen me sporting these specs around a lot lately. I absolutely adooooore the retro touch here… and how genius to add in that retro detail using an accessory?! You guys have been asking a lot about these sunnies and so you can shop them down below. Plus, I have added options that are total style steals… defs won’t break the bank.
2.The Denim Mini
The classic mini , ones with embroidery , embellished denim details, asymmetric styles… you name it. The Denim Mini will always be high up on my fashion leader board for Summer.
I remember when I first saw these bags popping up, I wasn’t completely convinced with them. But hey, I guess that’s why these trends are soooo successful. They may come across as unusual because we’ve never really ventured towards adding them to our closets & looks. I like different and I absolutely love experimenting with new pieces. I went from constantly second-guessing myself at the till, to being totally into the trend.
Man oh man… this has gotta be the print of the season. It is absolutely everywhere, you literally cannot even escape the trend (give into it guys, its completely worth it!) The gingham I’m wearing in my outfit above is more of a micro gingham, perfect for if you prefer a more subtle look which I just love.
Onto some serious Summer wear that I cannot wait to try out. Cut outs & high waisted designs are all the fuss right now… from the Kardashians to Beyonce and so on…. I feel like both these defining details are flattering on all body types. What do you guys think?
