Trying out new fashion is important for each season. And the relaxed feel of the summer means that we can be a bit more daring with our style. Here is a list of what’s hot and sure to make a statement when you walk into any room.

High Waisted swimsuits 

The high waisted trend is continuing on full swing and with the temps getting higher and higher, you will need a high waisted swimsuit to make a splash. Plain or patterned, these suits fit most body types. Venus makes some really charming suits like the Leila High Waist. You will look smokin’ hot in this one! http://www.venus.com/viewproduct.aspx

Raver sunglasses

Is your summer looking so bright that you need some shades? Well Raver sunglasses are the latest crave. The various colors and shapes make these sunnies the coolest around. Whether you are planning on matching (or clashing) them with your outfit, there is no doubt that you will be among the coolest in your clique. Check out the Ultimate Kaleidoscope glasses from Rave Rebel. These are so you! https://www.raverebel.com/products/ultimate-kaleidoscope-diffraction-glasses-black


Trench Coats 

While it seems like more of a fall or winter trend, trench coats are making quite a name for themselves this summer. A great way to top off a summer outfit, a trench coat is actually a great (and practical) accessory for those inevitable rainy days. Adding a pop of color to your coat is never a problem, in fact, it’s encouraged!

Loose scarves 

Scarves are usually reserved for the fall and winter months, however; if done correctly a loose scarf can really make a statement this summer. Choosing lighter colors and funkier patterns make this accessory the ideal one for your summer cookout. Especially when paired with tank tops! You are sure to look chic and stylish. One of our favorites is this Woven Scarf from H&M. http://www.hm.com/us/product/61616


Striped socks 

Let’s be honest, can you ever go wrong with stripes? The answer is an emphatic: NO! Summer time is the perfect time to pull out those stripes, especially those of the nautical type. And on socks, you will be rocking one of summer’s best accessories. Pair these with some cute All Stars and a pair of shorts. You will be hip and cool and the envy of the summer.

Statement earrings 

Summer time means more skin and more up-dos. Chances are your hair will be up and out of your beautiful face, which leaves your ears ready to be decorated. Statement earrings are one of the top fashion trends this summer. The bigger and more eccentric, the better. Feathers, beads, jewels, you name it. Match them or clash them, but either way, don’t forget them this season!

Waist-Cinchers (Corsets & belts)

One of this year’s hottest trends is not only cute, but will completely transform your shape. Corset and wrap belts are making a huge comeback and will keep that waist both tiny and stylish. With a variety of fabrics and textures, there is really no way to go wrong. In fact, the funkier and more unique, the better. Mixing colors, patterns and fabrics is a must this season. We particularly love the Coco Corset Belt from Urban Outfitters. Just adorable!  https://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shop/coco-corset-belt

This is a trend that is growing in popularity by the day! From small and narrow to big and bulky, there are a variety of options to choose from. This accessory is a great one to add to a low neck lined shirt or dress. There are also several ways to fasten this trend. We prefer a tie up choker like the velvet, rose-gold plated “Aamaya” by Priyanka. You are sure to look sexy and trendy!  https://www.net-a-porter.com/us/en/product


Upper arm bracelets 

With the warmer climate, you will undoubtedly be wearing less sleeves. So how do you show off your arms? With upper arm bracelets, of course. Mix and matching metals and jewels makes this trend even more fun. And the more the merrier, so stack them on! Forever 21 has some great options at very affordable prices! http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product

Lace-up boots 

It seems like boot season might be over, but believe it or not, lace-up boots are all the rage. From short booties to thy highs, you can pair these babies with anything. And with shorts season among us, why not show them off? Using your stems to show a pop of color is always a good idea, so don’t shy away from different colors and patterns. We love the American Rag “Lorah” lace- up boots and think you will too. https://www.macys.com/shop/product/american-rag-lorah-lace-up-boots-only-at-macys
