Do’s & Dont’s for Summer

DO go girly with a white lace top. Summer is here. As we eagerly anticipate the season of fun and frivolity, it is time to prep our closets with some of summer’s biggest fashion trends. You can dress up a white lace top with a skirt and heels or dress it down with denim shorts and sandals. You could even try pairing it with boots and a leather jacket to turn the feminine piece into something more edgy. DON’T underestimate the power of a tshirt dress. The throw on and go tshirt dress is perfect for summer. Wear yours from day to night by transitioning into slightly fancier footwear and some fun accessories. The bonus is they are easy to travel with, and they rarely wrinkle. DO add a splash of color. Find a brightly colored bag or shoes to pair with your wardrobe basics. This will infuse a little summer into an otherwise neutral outfit. DON’T be afraid to show a little skin. Though it is more of a weekend look than one for work, the crop top trend is wonderful for summer. Pair a loose version of the trend with a high waisted bottom to avoid showing a little too much tummy. DO invest in a dressier pair of shorts. They do not have to break the bank, but have a pair of shorts in a more tailored silhouette on hand. In the right cut and fabric, they can work for a casual office look or a dressy night out. DO make sure you have a classic white shirt. Basically, every outfit looks polished when you start with a crisp white shirt. You can even throw it over a bathing suit at the beach. DO continue to layer. Layering is not just for winter months. Simply adding a tshirt under a sundress is ideal for summer. Try this styling trick when you are totally bored with your favorite summer outfits.
