Rev Up Your Style With These Two Must Have Summer Trends
Summer is almost here and is the perfect time to invest in the stylish necessities of the season. When temperatures rise and you want to make a statement, look at two summer trends below that are influencing street style and are favorites of fashionistas worldwide.
The polka dot trend made its return last season and is here to stay. It is one of those prints that stands the test of time and comes back each season with new variations. This summer the surprisingly versatile print appears on clothing, shoes, purses and accessories.
Even though the polka dot has more of a feminine side to it, the styling options are endless. It is one of those prints that can take a totally different direction depending on how you pair it. Today, I am showcasing two polka dot looks that are my go-to options for both casual and dressed up days.
This dress caught my eye for its flowy style and edgy cut-out top. Being a mother of two, a bra is a must for my body type. If you are lucky to have the perkiness of a smaller size, then I dare you to go braless in this dress. It covers the chest area in a very elegant, yet provocative way. I recommend a little playfulness in a summer outfit, especially if you wear it to the beach or pool.
For a more modest but trendy approach, wear it over a cropped top and some chunky heels. Glam it up with jewelry and a clutch and you are sure to make a statement in this outfit.
I styled this look for a very hot day and will definitely pack it with me for my beach vacation that is coming up soon. What I love the most about this cut is its breeziness and versatility to be styled up or down.
The second dress is much more elegant cut and offers a subtle polka dot detail on the tie. I love how the polka dot is mixed with another pattern, proving that it does not have to be the only pattern in your outfit. The slit and back bow detail makes this a perfect option for a romantic date night under the summer sky.
The wicker purse is here to stay and offers us many new options in weaves, patterns and colors. I must admit that I am guilty of having added five new bags this season, just do not tell my husband! I love how much character these purses add to an outfit. All five are linked for you to shop below.
This one is super spacious and is my go-to for pool gatherings. It fits all of the beach necessities with its large capacity.
Then, of course there is the bamboo purse by Cultgaia. They did a great job with their influencer marketing as it is one of those items every girl has on her Instagram. I have to say, for a person that likes to have unique items the popularity of this purse takes away a little from its beauty. But, Cultgaia is quick to introduce different models that are even funkier and better, so you have choices. A wicker purse will surely add that summer vibe to all of your outfits. I have linked Cultgaia purse as well as the cheaper alternative here.
So, go ahead ladies and get your summer trends shopping on. I hope this post inspired you to add one or both of these fun styles to your summer rotation.
