Warm weather is here, let’s rejoice! The first days of warm summer weather are probably my favorite! I’m definitely a winter gal, but after a while, it just feels good to have the sun shining and your toes free from their coverings!
Summer is also a fashion lovers bliss! Light and bright colors, bold patterns, the ability to not have to cover up your outfit with a coat…it’s alllllllll good! With all this fun-ness going around, I thought I’d round up my favorite trends for this summer!
Ascot/handkerchief/bandana…however you want to think about them, you going to see them everywhere this spring and summer! But where is everyone finding these magic cloth accessories? My absolute favorite place for handkerchiefs is Madewell! They are such good quality and they have consistently had some since I first noticed them last year! And they’re priced pretty fairly. You might also find some at H&M or Forever21.
You can wear these little gems around your neck like a French fashion queen or get creative! I’ve seen people tie them around their wrists or ankles, braid them into their hair, and loop them around a strap on their purse! However, I love wrapping mine around a top knot! I never got the whole “messy bun” trend down quite right, so I love hiding it with a handkerchief!
(Can you tell I really love these things? PERFECT accessory!)
Paper Bag Waistband
These have been popular in France for quite some time now, but I don’t think the trend is going anywhere in the summer! Take your standard wide leg trouser and dress it up with a cute, muffin top hiding, paper bag waistband and you’ve got the most comfortable pants ever! I seriously can’t wait to get some more spending money so I can snag a pair of these!
I’m just going to come out and say the most boring sentence ever: white is going to be the color of the season. White is a staple for any wardrobe, but this summer, we’re going to see it take over! I’m talking a whiteout on the ‘gram, folks. Here is your season to embrace your inner angel. But don’t get too down! Add some interest to your outfit by picking interesting texture or some ruffles! And don’t forget, your accessories are your place to shine! My romper is sold out, but here’s a similar one!
Okay, this one’s been in the making for a couple years now. Ever since Birkenstocks came back in style, we’ve seen a rise of bulky, chunky, platform-y sandals. But I see the summer of 2018 as being the height of this trend! And that good news, because these are usually super comfy!
I am loving the infusion of gladiator and 2000’s foam flip-flop that is happening now! These are some of my favorites! But I am also loving the clog version of this trend as well!
