The weather is quickly warming up meaning that summer is on it’s way. Get ready for the scorching 30 degree weather, summer nights, pool parties and beach day outs. Normally, I dread summer because all you can wear is a singlet and shorts but I’m actually quite excited for this upcoming summer. I love the new summer 2013/2014 trends and think that they make summer way more stylish and chic. Here are summer items that I believe is a must for this summer:
Strappy Singlet/Cami Tops
I am currently obsessed over these types of tops. I love the way they fit and how they make any summer outfit look elegant and stylish. The loose fit of these clothes makes it breathable and comfortable to wear during a hot summer day. I especially like the strappy tops with more of a halter neck line and that are made out of more thin fabric but not sheer. These tops are very versatile and easy to pair with anything. You can wear it for a beach day as well as a dinner with your family. Let me tell you, a black or white strappy top like this can go a long way.
(I think thats what they are called) Anyways, these cute heeled sandals are a must this season. They are so comfy and matches with pretty much any outfit. I think they just make any summer outfit look a bit more dressed up and girly. There are many different styles to this type of heel, but I especially like the style shown above.
Stripes are an all-season round must have for any girls wardrobe. They are perfect for any season. For summer, wear a striped top with cute shorts and sandals (as shown above) or a striped summer dress. Whether horizontal, vertical, thin, bold, colourful or monochrome, stripes make a statement. I just love stripes!
Shift dresses are perfect for the summer because it is loose and lets your body stay cool and airy. These dresses can be worn for different occasions. Match it with some flat sandals and cute sunnies for a perfect day out, or with strappy heels with a matching clutch and statement necklace for night or more dressed up events. I especially love shift dresses with cap sleeves and a great pattern.
I love patterned shorts, especially those with some beaded detailing. Wearing patterned shorts is fun way to dress up an outfit. I prefer patterned shorts that are more structured and not made out of denim. It’s refreshing to wear these types of shorts rather than the usual denim shorts. Just make sure to not get any shorts with crazy patterns with lots and lots of colour. I recommend sticking to geometric and soft prints so that you can wear them with way more things.
Add colour during this summer by having a pop of colour on your lips. For the summer, opt for more pink and light coloured lipsticks.
Why not? I just adore flower crowns. I think they are so feminine, adorable and fun. They are so fun to wear because they make feel great (hopefully you get what I mean). I think they are an must for this summer because they add a girly flare to your outfit.
Monochrome/Black and White
Monochrome is HUGE this season. If you walk through a shopping mall, you are most likely to see black and white rule the store windows. What’s great about the monochrome trend is that it’s not restricted to summer 2013/2014, it looks great during any season. I think the monochromatic colours really chic and elegant and pairs with many outfits. I love the heels shown above so much. It looks so “clean” and just gorgeous.
Crisp white wardrobe pieces are a must for any summer wardrobe. This summer go crazy with the white (but not too crazy). Don’t be afraid to go white on white. I am currently loving white skirts, shorts and shoes. It’s great to wear a white skirt instead of the usual black skirt. The best thing about white is that it goes with everything in your wardrobe. White is an extremely versatile colour, that’s why I love it.
