I’m going to be sharing with you some of my favorite looks for the Spring and Summer. They aren’t in preference order or anything like that. I numbered things and they just came out like this!
Now that that is said, here are my favorite looks!
Monochromatic means that the outfit is all one color or hue. I absolutely love monochromatic outfits and I think they are very flattering. My personal favorite is all navy with either silver, green or yellow accents. I love it when Bermuda shorts are used in the outfit. It’s a really easy look to pull off and it doesn’t take too much effort. This look works on everyone.
2. High Waist Pants
This is a look that I really like but is extremely hard to pull off. It is very popular and cute when done right. I would suggest getting a simple print on the pant (maybe a light pinstripe) so that you can mix-and-match with many different tops. They will only be in style for a little while so wear them as much as possible! I would suggest that when you wear this look that you tuck in your shirt to show them off! These pants will draw attention to your mid section so be aware of that. Also, never get high waist pants that have a skinny leg. It is very unflattering even on petite and small people. It just doesn’t work.
3. Wide-leg Pants or Jeans
This is also an adorable look and is easy for anyone to pull off. If purchasing wide-leg jeans, go for a darker wash because they are more slimming. These pants can be casual and dressy. They are very versatile and go with pretty much anything. So when you’re buying your next pair of pants, try some wide-legs!
These are the dressy version of wide-leg pants:
These are the more casual version:
Scarves are the hottest accessory as of now in my opinion. They can make a t-shirt and jeans an outfit very easily and can be worn in many different styles. Here are some pictures of my favorites.
Adorable, easy, beautiful and feminine. They can be casual and dressy. Adding a single accessory makes an outfit very easily with a dress and a pair of flats. Take advantage of the fact that dresses are in style and everyone is wearing them! Here are some of my favorites for this summer.
Jackets are very in and very flattering on everyone. Finding the right fit might be difficult for you but it is possible. Most of us can’t afford to go to a tailor (at least I can’t) so scouring the shops for a jacket that you like and fits can be extremely difficult. But it’s worth it! Here are some of my favorite sweater jackets and jackets.
Flats are very in and very fun. You can get crazy patterns on them and plain classic looks. They work with dresses, pants, skirts and shorts—so everything! Old Navy has some very cute flats this season so check them out at oldnavy.com. Here are some of my favorite styles:
Skirts are popular! And I don’t mean those mini-skirts (remind me, why did anyone think they were OK to wear?) I mean knee-length, flowing and flattering skirts. Pattern is fun, color is fun and plain is also fun. I personally find skirts much more comfortable in the heat of summer compared to shorts. I think that having one or two simple skirts would be wonderful for everyday wardrobe but maybe one funky patterned or colored skirt for special events and church. Add some funk to your wardrobe! Make sure that your skirt hits your knee—it makes for the best silhouette! If you’ve got some curves, skirts that are a-line skirt or a full will be best for you. They should be fairly easy to find. Here are some of my favorite styles!
This striped skirt is one of my favorite skirts. It’s pretty expensive but I thought you might like to see it anyway.
9. Pattern and Color
This may seem like quite a wide range for style—it is! Color is especially in this season (as opposed to black or neutrals). Yellows, greens, blues, oranges and metallics are very current. Pick a color or two that compliments your skin and buy a few items in that color. You’ll find that it will update your wardrobe quite a bit. If you want, also buy a few items in pattern in those colors. It’ll add some mix-and-match ability to your wardrobe. Here are some of my favorite colors and patterns for the season.
10. Accentuating Your Waist
This is a popular look. Use a belt or wear a wrap shirt. Having a waist is a very in look nowadays. Thus the high waist pants, wrap dresses and shirts, belts in the middle of the shirt and wide-leg pants. Accentuating your waist will enhance your natural hour-glass figure and make you look thinner. Try not to let the shirt or dress bunch anywhere—it won’t compliment your body. Some of my favorite looks that can accentuate your waist!
Most of these clothes are pretty expensive. I wanted to give you an idea of what is in and what the prices usually are. You can go out shopping and keep an eye open for these styles and good prices. Target, Marshall’s, TJMaxx, Kohl’s, JCPenney’s, Old Navy, The Gap and other stores will have good prices and maybe something that’ll look good on you! Remember to try things on — trying never hurt anybody!
